Two of Georgia’s representatives announced plans to challenge the Electoral College votes during the January 6th session of Congress.
Rep. Jody Hice and Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Green will join a congressional coalition in objecting the electoral college votes.
Rep. Jody Hice even met with the president earlier this week to strategize their objection to the Electors. Others in the meeting included Trump’s legal team, Vice President Mike Pence, members of the House Freedom Caucus, Greene, and several other lawmakers.
From Georgia Star News:
The House Freedom Caucus, or Freedom Caucus, is a coalition of conservative Republicans in the U. S. House. In addition to Hice, current members include Representatives Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05), Chip Roy (R-TX-21), Ted Budd (R-NC-13), Warren Davidson (R-OH-06), Jeff Duncan (R-SC-03), Michael Cloud (R-TX-27), Ralph Norman (R-SC-05), Scott Perry (R-PA-10), Steve King (R-IA-04), Randy Weber (R-TX-14), Dr. Paul Gosar (R-AZ-04), Dr. Ted Yoho (R-FL-03), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX-01).
Greene has also stated that she plans to challenge the results repeatedly.
“The media obsessively investigated and cried [‘]Russian collusion[‘] for 4 years,” tweeted Greene. “The same media refuses to investigate and report the 2020 stolen election. On Jan 6th, Americans will be shocked at what has occurred. And outraged at those who are willing to turn a blind eye.”
During the January 6th session, Congress members may object to the results offered by each state as they are announced. An objection must be signed by at least one senator and one representative.
