Ron Johnson Pushed Pence To Accept Fake Electors

The Washington Post reports:

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) offered to hand-deliver certificates of fake electors to Vice President Mike Pence as part of the Trump campaign’s broader effort to overturn the 2020 election result, according to evidence released by the House Jan. 6 committee.

In texts obtained by the committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, a Johnson staffer approached a top aide to the vice president requesting that Pence and Johnson meet for Johnson to deliver fake electors’ votes for Michigan and Wisconsin, which the Trump campaign had also instructed the fake electors send to the National Archives.

“Do not send that to him,” the Pence aide told the Johnson staffer, rejecting the senator’s request that Pence participate in the ruse to contest the election.

  1. Scottie, as an independent and former Republican and Democrat, it surprises me that people continue to vote for Ron Johnson. Of course, it surprises me that people voted for Jessie Helms, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. The truth matters. We citizens are owed the truth. It is hard enough to solve our problems with facts, but nigh impossible when our elected officials are not truthful. Keith

    1. Hello Keith. I agree with you. I am a progressive who votes for the Democratic party candidates because the other party is worse for my positions. But in truth at this point I am not sure why the right voters tolerate being lied to the way they are? I can see why they vote for racists because they like that message. I can see why they vote for thugs because they like that way of acting. I can even see why they vote for restrictions on the press and what others can do because they want only their side of an issue to be in the public view. But why do they tolerate their politicians outright lying to them? And don’t the politicians know they no longer have to lie, they can just be nasty cheaters because their voters like it. Hugs
