Congressman Gaetz Plans to Object to Electors on Jan. 6 – Joins Tuberville & Brooks

Florida congressman Matt Gaetz said that he plans to object to the Electoral College vote on January 6.

So on January 6, I’m joining with the fighters in the Congress and we are going to object to electors from states that didn’t run clean elections,” Gaetz said during his speech at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit.

Gaetz will be joining Alabama congressman Mo Brooks who announced earlier this month that he will be objecting to the electoral college votes.

Gaetz also stated that he had spoken to Alabama senator Tommy Tuberville who told him that he plans on joining the effort.

I had a chance to speak to coach Tuberville just moments ago and he says we are done running plays from the establishment’s losing playbook and it’s time to fight,” Gaetz said.

The objections will leverage the Constitution and the Electoral Count Act of 1887 and must be made in writing by at least one House member and senator. The joint session will then break for a maximum of two hours to debate the basis of the objections. Afterwards, both the House and Senate will vote separately whether to accept or reject the objection requiring a majority vote from both chambers.

So on January 6, I’m joining with the fighters in the Congress and we are going to object to electors from states that didn’t run clean elections,” Gaetz said.

Congressman Gaetz also said that he would accept a position as United States Attorney General should President Donald Trump offer it: “And so I figure, in the next term of Donald Trump, whether that’s in 2021 or 2025, maybe he ought to pick me to be the Attorney General.”
