U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) was one of the very few left who have been fully supporting the effort to reject electors for Joe Biden yesterday. Hawley has made the clarification that despite the awful situation at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., it’s completely separate from the reasons he decided to push for investigations into potential voter fraud.
It has been assumed that many of the Republicans who supported that effort did it to save face with Trump supporters as there wasn’t a good chance of getting enough votes to succeed. After political pressure yesterday, many Republicans dropped out of the effort.
Hawley, who had a book about tech censorship coming out, stuck with the plan, and it appears as though Simon & Schuster canceled the publishing of his new book. CNN reported in part:
“After witnessing the disturbing, deadly insurrection that took place on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthcoming book,” the company said in a statement.

Josh Hawley fired back on Twitter moments ago, telling the company he plans to potentially sue them as he says “We’ll see you in court”. You can read his full statement below where he calls Simon & Schuster a “woke mob”.
