It’s been several months since we’ve heard from former Vice President Mike Pence. But he’s back in the news, and his words triggered liberals and shocked conservatives.
Liberals praised Pence over how he handled the January 6th Electoral College fiasco, but now they may be singing a different tune.
In a new op-ed published by Conservative Daily Signal, Pence is now speaking out about that day, and his thoughts on election fraud and integrity.
“After an election marked by significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law, I share the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of the 2020 election,” Pence writes.
“That’s why when I was serving as presiding officer at the joint session of Congress certifying the Electoral College results, I pledged to ensure that all objections properly raised under the Electoral Count Act would be given a full hearing before Congress and the American people,” he continued.
“The tragic events of Jan. 6—the most significant being the loss of life and violence at our nation’s Capitol—also deprived the American people of a substantive discussion in Congress about election integrity in America,” he wrote.
Pence stunned conservatives by his op-ed and angered liberals. However he makes a few interesting points that the Capitol incident kept he and others from being able to do their jobs and actually question the irregularities of the 2020 elections.
“Many of the most troubling voting irregularities took place in states that set aside laws enacted by state legislatures in favor of sweeping changes ordered by governors, secretaries of state, and courts.”
“While legislators in many states have begun work on election reform to restore public confidence in state elections, unfortunately, congressional Democrats have chosen to sweep those valid concerns and reforms aside and to push forward a brazen attempt to nationalize elections in blatant disregard of the U.S. Constitution,” Pence wrote.
“Congress will vote this week on HR 1, the so-called For the People Act, a massive 800-page election overhaul bill that would increase opportunities for election fraud, trample the First Amendment, further erode confidence in our elections, and forever dilute the votes of legally qualified eligible voters,” he continued.
The fact that Pence is now lashing out saying that the Capitol idiocy stopped him from doing his job, but also saying that there was voter fraud, and there needed to be an investigation is alarming.
What are your thoughts America? Do you think Pence is coming around?
