The state of Ohio certified its election results Friday giving the win to President Donald Trump, who has still not conceded the election.
“I’m fully confident Ohio’s voice was heard in a fair and honest election,” Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose said in an interview with News Center 7. According to Fox News, Trump won the popular vote in Ohio by 8.03 percentage points, with 3,154,834 votes compared to President-elect Joe Biden’s 2,679,165.
“When people invent conspiracies about elections that aren’t based in reality, that’s damaging and that’s irresponsible and shouldn’t happen,” LaRose said, according to The Associated Press. “Because the fact is that elections are run better and more honestly than, really, I think they ever have been.”
Trump has not yet conceded the election but has ordered the government to begin the transition process for Biden. He says that does not mean he has conceded the election.
“Remember, the GSA has been terrific, and Emily Murphy has done a great job, but the GSA does not determine who the next President of the United States will be,” Trump said in a Tuesday tweet.
So far there are only a few Republican senators who have called Biden the president-elect, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, and Maine Sen. Susan Collins.
Meanwhile, as LifeNews.com reported over the weekend, Republican legislators in Pennsylvania have introduced a resolution for the state legislature to appoint delegates to the Electoral College because of the extensive amount of election fraud they’ve uncovered.
The lawmakers released a memo late Friday saying the executive and judicial branches of Pennsylvania’s government usurped the legislature’s constitutional power to set the rules of the election.
They said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court “unlawfully and unilaterally” extended the deadline to allow mail ballots to be counted — without postmarks and after the election has concluded, they say the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled incorrectly that signatures on mail-in ballots did not need to be authenticated, and they say the Pennsylvania government improperly urged residents to cure defects on their ballots. They say all of these things violate Pennsylvania Election Code.
The resolution “declares that the selection of presidential electors and other statewide electoral contest results in this commonwealth is in dispute” and “urges the secretary of the commonwealth and the governor to withdraw or vacate the certification of presidential electors and to delay certification of results in other statewide electoral contests voted on at the 2020 general election.”
It also “urges the United States Congress to declare the selection of presidential electors in this Commonwealth to be in dispute.”
The Republican legislators said in a statement: “A number of compromises of Pennsylvania’s election laws took place during the 2020 General Election. The documented irregularities and improprieties associated with mail-in balloting, pre-canvassing, and canvassing have undermined our elector process and as a result we cannot accept certification of the results in statewide races.”
“We believe this moment is pivotal and important enough that the General Assembly needs to take extraordinary measures to answer these extraordinary questions. We also believe our representative oversight duty as Pennsylvania’s legislative branch of government demands us to re-assume our constitutional authority and take immediate action,” they added.
Pennsylvania State Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican who headed up a recent hearing on election fraud in the state, added more on Twitter:
“There is mounting evidence that the PA presidential election was compromised. If this is the case, under Article II, Section 1.2 of the US Constitution, the state legislature has the sole authority to direct the manner of selecting delegates to the Electoral College,” he said. “This power was given to the state legislature for the purpose of safeguarding the appointment of our President, specifically contemplating corruption and ensuring that the people are not disenfranchised through a corrupt election process. Therefore, we are introducing a Resolution to exercise our obligation and authority to appoint delegates to the Electoral College.”
The resolution continues:
“On November 24, 2020, the Secretary of the Commonwealth unilaterally and prematurely certified results of the November 3, 2020 election regarding presidential electors despite ongoing litigation,” the resolution states.
“The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has the duty to ensure that no citizen of this Commonwealth is disenfranchised, to insist that all elections are conducted according to the law, and to satisfy the general public that every legal vote is counted accurately.”
The current results have pro-abortion Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump, but the president’s campaign is challenging the results in a handful of states based on evidence of election fraud.
