Sen. Kelly Loeffler reneges her promise she made to the American people
Her face says it all.
"Mr. President when I arrived in Washington this morning I fully intended to object to the certification of the electoral votes," said Loeffler after Congress reconvened.
The Senator continued, "However, the events that have transpired today have forced me to reconsider. And I cannot now in good conscience object to the certification of these electors."
Sen. Loeffler went on to note the "violence, the lawlessness, and siege of the halls of Congress" that occurred when protestors stormed the US Capitol Building as reasons to renege on her word.
"My objection was intended to protect the sanctity of the American democratic process," she added.
On Monday, Sen. Loeffler announced that she will object to Electoral College votes when lawmakers gather for a joint session, according to The Epoch Times.
“Elections are the bedrock of our democracy and the American people deserve to be 100% confident in our election system and its outcomes. But right now, tens of millions of Americans have real concerns about the way in which the November Presidential election was conducted—and I share their concerns,” she said in a statement on her own campaign website.
“The American people deserve a platform in Congress, permitted under the Constitution, to have election issues presented so that they can be addressed,” she said. “That’s why, on January 6th, I will vote to give President Trump and the American people the fair hearing they deserve and support the objection to the Electoral College certification process.”
“We must restore trust, confidence and integrity in our election system,” Loeffler said.
