Alabama Congressman plots to overturn Electoral College certifying Biden’s election win

A Congressman from Alabama plans to challenge the Electoral College votes when Congress moves to certify Joe Biden's victory on 6 January.  

Politico first reported the story. Rep. Mo Brooks, a Republican, is searching for a senator to join his challenge, though he said he might object to the election alone if he does not find a partner. He noted that doing so would largely be a symbolic, and not practical, undertaking.  

Mr Brooks has echoed Donald Trump's baseless claims that there was massive voter fraud in the 2020 US election that led to his defeat.  

“In my judgment, if only lawful votes by eligible American citizens were cast, Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a significant margin, and Congress’s certification should reflect that,” Mr Brooks told Politico. “This election was stolen by the socialists engaging in extraordinary voter fraud and election theft measures.”
