Congressman Louie Gohmert is a patriot, and should be treated as such. He’s got a pair the size of grapefruits America, and he continues to fight for President Trump and America daily.
According to the Tyler Morning Telegraph, Gohmert met with President Trump on December 21st privately at the White House, along with four other Republicans who are supporting the President’s fight to stay as President another term.
Sunday, Gohmert, an accomplished attorney and former three-term state district judge, filed a lawsuit in Tyler against Vice President Mike Pence to stop the electoral college vote count.
The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Easter District of Texas, Tyler Division, cites the 1887 federal law called the Electoral Count Act.
The lawsuit will only be withdrawn if Pence and Congress appoint Trump the President for a second term.
“These provisions of Section 15 of the Electoral Count Act are unconstitutional insofar as they establish procedures for determining which of two or more competing slates of Presidential Electors for a given State are to be counted in the Electoral College,” the lawsuit says. “This violation occurs because the Electoral Count Act directs the Defendant, Vice President Michael R. Pence, in his capacity as President of the Senate and Presiding Officer over the January 6, 2021 Joint Session of Congress: (1) to count the electoral votes for a State that have been appointed in violation of the Electors Clause; (2) limits or eliminates his exclusive authority and sole discretion under the Twelfth Amendment to determine which slates of electors for a State, or neither, may be counted; and (3) replaces the Twelfth Amendment’s dispute resolution procedure – under which the House of Representatives has sole authority to choose the President.”
Congressmen Jim Jordan (Ohio), Matt Gaetz (Florida) Mo Brooks (Alabama) and Andy Biggs (Arizona) met with Gohmert and Trump.
“This is not an abstract or hypothetical question, but a live “case or controversy” under Article III that is ripe for a declaratory judgment arising from the events of December 14, 2020, where the State of Arizona (and several others) have appointed two competing slates of electors,” Gohmert’s lawsuit said.
The lawsuit continues, “On January 6, 2021, when Congress convenes to count the electoral votes for President and Vice-President, Plaintiff Representative Gohmert will object to the counting of the Arizona slate of electors voting for Biden and to the Biden slates from the remaining Contested States. Rep. Gohmert is entitled to have his objection determined under the Twelve Amendment … other Contested States have contested the certification of their State’s electoral votes by State executives, due to substantial evidence of election fraud that is the subject of ongoing litigation and investigations; and (4) Senators and Members of the House of Representatives have expressed their intent to challenge the electors and electoral votes certified by State executives in the Contested States.”
