Skip to comments.Law Prohibits Pence From Accepting Electoral Votes From Fraudulently Certified States – Constitutional Lawyer
Posted on 12/20/2020 3:23:53 PM PST by MNDude
Citing the United States Constitution and U.S. Code, Constitutional Lawyer Ivan Raiklin says it is Vice President Mike Pence’s duty to instruct states to expeditiously send their Electoral College Certificates immediately if they have not been received. U.S.C. 12 explains that “When no certificate of vote and list mentioned in sections 9 and 11 of this title from any State shall have been received by the President of the Senate or by the Archivist of the United States by the fourth Wednesday in December, after the meeting of the electors shall have been held, the President of the Senate … shall request, by the most expeditious method available, the secretary of state of the State to send up the certificate…”
Beyond the allegations and evidence of widespread fraud presented by both President Donald Trump’s legal team and independent lawyers and witnesses across the United States, several states have now sent competing slates of delegates to Washington, D.C.

We shall see what pence does
Since it appears election fraud, flipping votes between candidates, reassigning votes, replacing votes is all fine by every court, why should VP Pence not apply those the same to the counting of these votes?
there ya go
dont accept the votes from the nine obviously known cheating states
california - legal wording missing on hundreds of thousands of ballots, ca law declares them not valid, they counted them illegally
Pence is a company man.
he doesnt have to be like the cheating democrats
he has the law on his side to reject votes from states that have illegally certified the votes
hes not cheating, he’s obeying his duty to follow the law
He likes being VP.
If this turkey thinks sending illegitimate votes that are under current lawsuits is justified so long as they’re rushed, then what if we send children’s play money and Monopoly money rushed to the IRS in time for income tax deadlines? We never said the “money” (or the phony “votes) were genuine. But they were rushed in on time.
You forgot new mexico
I’m not getting this. Isn’t that what we want? Not to accept votes from cheaters?
It’s only OK if you’re Communist. Normals not allowed.
hadnt followed that one, didnt know it was in the mix
But only one slate of electors from each state have been sent via the Electoral College. Those are the votes that will be opened on January 6th and those are the ones which will be counted.
According to Raiklin, the Constitution allows the disputed states to be completely stricken from the Electoral College
....if Pence should refuse to accept them....
.....ergo, the number of Electoral College votes required to win would shrink dramatically from 270.
President Trump would win under a simple majority of Electoral College votes, 232-227, without any risk of triggering a contingent election.
And we're off to the races...
My prediction: Free Republic for the next four years will be an endless parade of threads about the next lawsuit filed in federal court by an Orly Taitz-ish attorney with a mail-order law degree seeking to invalidate the election and return Donald Trump to the White House.
"I'm not an attorney but I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night" Freeper internet lawyers will pontificate about how this case looks really good and citing some arcane 18th Century essay on English Common Law, they'll assure us there's an excellent chance that we'll see Joe Biden removed from office, charged with treason, and sent to GITMO.
Actual Freeper attorneys will post that the case will be dismissed without comment because it's garbage. They will be derided as trolls, #NeverTrumpers, and told to go back to DU.
The case will be dismissed without comment.
There will be threads using blurry photos of men who vaguely resemble these judges allegedly on Epstein's Pedo Island attempting to explain why such a solid case was tossed out. "The judge was corrupt!"
On to the next lawsuit filed in Federal court by an Orly Taitz-ish attorney with a mail-order law degree seeking to invalidate the election. And repeat.
Can someone quote the law or the clause in the Constitution that gives Pence this authority?
The GOP sent a Trump slate of electors to congress. Biden “margin” 100K, 200K ballots suspect
Those involved will go down in History as heroes..
