The claims of widespread voter fraud being made by the president and some of his supporters have been deemed unfounded by election officials. Legal challenges to the election results have been rejected by courts across our country, including the conservative-leaning Supreme Court. At this point, allegations of voter fraud pervasive enough to change the results of the presidential election should be considered misinformation and treated as such.
As a member of the United States Senate, you have taken an oath to uphold the constitution of our nation. This includes accepting the results of the presidential election. I am deeply disappointed that instead of honoring our democracy and the votes of ‘we the people’, you are giving credence to malicious misinformation designed to undermine our democratic processes.
I hope you will reconsider your position and vote to certify the results of the presidential election on January 6.
