Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala. 5) has gotten 17 of his colleagues in Congress to sign an open letter directed to Congress leaders and chairs of committees, asking for emergency hearings concerning election fraud.
The letter mentions the need for hearings to be held on alleged election fraud before the Electoral College submits their votes on Jan. 6.
Brooks said "18 House colleagues joined me in sending a letter to [Mitch McConnell], [Nancy Pelosi], and various House & Senate committee chairs seeking election fraud hearings ahead of the Jan 6th Electoral College vote submissions."
The letter states that the request has "particular urgency," due to the Electoral College deadline looming.
The letter mentions the parts of the Constitution that apply to elections, and how the signatories feel that these parts have been violated by several states, by overreach of authority vis a vis uncommon practices during these past federal elections, held on Nov. 3 of this year.
The gist of the letter is very similar to a suit brought by Texas before the Supreme Court, which was joined by several other states. The suit, however was not heard by the Court.
The letter goes on to state that "America's republic is dependent on the actual and perceived honesty and accuracy of the elections which are the underpinning of any republic."
The letter closes with "We look forward to your prompt action on these matters that are critical to America's continued existence as a Republic."
None of the addressees have yet responded.
