The question is whether both Houses of Congress need to reject a state’s Electoral College vote for an objection made during the joint session of Congress on January 6, 2021 to prevail. As explained below, both Houses of Congress do not have to agree to reject a state’s Electoral College votes for those votes to be voided.
There are five scenarios under Section 15 of the Electoral Count Act of 1887(3 U.S.C. § 1 et. seq.) (“ECA”) for counting and resolving Electoral College votes disputes in the joint session of Congress. Scenarios 1 through 4 deal with cases in which both Houses either agree or disagree to the regularity of the votes. Scenario 1 is the only case in which Congress receives just one Electoral College return and both Houses must agree to reject the vote. Scenario 5 is the only one of the five scenarios in which the two Houses disagree, but it only applies when Congress receives competing electoral returns (one state submits to Congress more than one Electoral College vote return). With such disagreement, it provides that the stalemate between the Houses shall be broken by Congress having to accept the electoral votes which a state’s executive (Governor) shall have certified. Hence, under Section 15, one could argue that Scenario 5, which allows for a case in which both Houses disagree, only applies if Congress receives official competing electoral returns and that if it receives only one such return then the two Houses must under Scenario 1 both agree to reject that vote. As explained below, Congress in joint session is not shackled by Section 15 because Section 15 is unconstitutional and even if constitutional, it does not apply to a case of a corrupt underlying popular vote.
Again, there are five ... continue reading at: https://puzo1.blogspot.com/2020/12/it-is-sufficient-if-only-one-house-of.html

Thanks for posting.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)
Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ)
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA)
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY)
In other words, without the input from the state legislature, there is nothing going to happen.
Did you read the article?
The author describes how section 5 is not relevant in the wake of voter fraud. The electors can be rejected based on illegal voting (as attested in Texas vs PA at al. and succinctly summarized by Navarro) forcing an Amend 12 solution.
We may also get a chance to see a VP candidate a shown to be ineligible.
I thought it also said that 2 through 5 only come into play if there is more than one set of electors. There is only one set in this case. I’ll have to read it again later when I am more awake.
Do you think there there are 50?
I don't think there are 3.
Only 200 more to go!
Senator Kamala Harris was born in CA to two non-U.S. citizen parents. She was born with citizenship and allegiance to the U.S. and to her parents’ two countries and not born with unity of natural allegiance to and citizenship of the U.S. Born with divided loyalties, she is at best a 14th Amendment “citizen” of the United States, but not an Art. II “natural born citizen.” For the full details on what the original meaning of a natural born citizen is and why Senator Harris is not a natural born citizen, see the amicus curiae brief which I authored on behalf of the U.S. Allegiance Institute recently filed in the case of Robert C. Laity v. Kamala Devi Harris, then pending in the D.C. Federal District Court under Case No. 20-cv-2511-EGS, which the court dismissed for lack of standing (not on the merits of the meaning of a natural born citizen). This case is now on appeal in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Maybe you can get a bunch of celebrities together and do a video trying to convince electors to change their votes.
Quoting all these laws is a waste of time!
There is nobody that will enforce these laws, no court or any other legal action will make a difference to those people.
Thanks for your efforts! Now put on the pressure and get it done!!
Well I sent emails today to both my Senators from Louisiana, Bill Cassidy & John Kennedy, and told them they better stand up to object all of the swings states, does that count? 8>)
It’s good to see Mario Apuzzo getting into the thick of things on another constitutional issue.
It is time for McClintock to run for higher office. He is brutal in debates.
There might be 4 or 5. But it’s enough to record it as history.
From the blog post: “Seven contested states, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin all sent competing electoral returns to Congress”
This is completely false, and makes anything else the author has to say dubious.
No State has sent more than one set of Electoral votes to Congress, and no State is going to do so.
