Thomas Massie Declares That He Will ‘Vote to Reject a State’s Electors if a Majority of That State’s Legislature Formally Indicates That We Should Reject that State’s Electors’

While the list of Republican representatives from the House grows that intend to object to the election results at a joint meeting of Congress on Jan. 6, Thomas Massie (KY) has issued a statement on his intentions.

Massie tweeted out earlier, “I will vote to reject a state’s electors if a majority of that state’s legislature formally indicates that we should reject that state’s electors.”

Thus far, it is unclear if any states will have the numbers to do that, although a statement like this could put the ball in their court to issue such a statement.

At the beginning of December, over 60 Republican state elected officials in Pennsylvania sent a letter to the General Assembly expressing their desire to contest the electors in their state.

Populist Twitter user, “The Election Wizard” responded to Massie and said, “You have just as much — maybe even more — constitutional authority to act as the state legislatures. You don’t need state lawmakers to do the right thing in order for you to do the right thing.”

President Trump has been targeting Georgia lately in many of his tweets and yesterday he tweeted, “We now have far more votes than needed to flip Georgia in the Presidential race. Massive VOTER FRAUD took place. Thank you to the Georgia Legislature for today’s revealing meeting!”

Twitter attached their standard “This claim about election fraud is disputed” tag to the tweet.
