They’ve already tried nearly every trick in the book, but its possible we haven’t seen the tip of the iceberg yet. Today, the United States Congress is set to certify the results of the November election. It is normally a formal and sleepy affair, with the reading of the vote counts from all 50 states. But this year, some in Congress are threatening to turn it into a circus. A group including Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson plans to object to Joe Biden’s electors when Congress meets today to tabulate the Electoral College vote. They want the right to appoint their own electors, ones who will vote for Trump rather than Biden. Congress doesn’t have that authority, and for good reason. It is a dangerous idea to suggest that Congress has unlimited power and can overturn elections. They continue to yammer on about purported election fraud, but two full months after the election, they have yet to produce any evidence of it. It is anti-Democratic to deny the outcome and overturn the results of state-certified elections. The fact is the only role of Congress today is to listen as the votes are tabulated. Getting in the way of that would be disenfranchising millions of Americans, telling them their vote didn’t count. That is not the way democracy works, nor should it be.
