3 – 126 or 118 Representatives Trying to Overturn 2020 Presidential Election

126 Names of Representatives Pledging to Overturn 2020 Presidential Election*

I am still looking for a better quality list of the 118 that BuzzFeed suggests is now 126, who are committed to Trump to the point of overturning the Presidential Election today.  It’s gotten extra nasty now that Georgia Senate upset occurred putting Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock and Senator Jon Ossoff into the Senate and knocking out Mr. Turtle, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky.

I was surprised when one of my colleagues didn’t know who Senator Chuck Grassley was.  He had a long career first in the House of Representatives, and then later in the Senate, always featuring whistleblowers. 

While I’m no fan of the Republicans and I’m sure if I looked closely at his record, I’d find many a person who blew the whistle given his legislation and it only put a target on her back. That said, at least the idea exists and Grassley spearheaded the campaign to make the federal government follow its own laws pertaining to employees, particularly discrimination against women and all other identities. Not everybody needs to escape to Vermont.
