Rep,Jim Jordan a number of Ohio GOP members of Congress are among more than 150 joining a Texas lawsuit seeking to throw out election results in four states where President Donald Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
“Like you, I’ve read about many of these voting irregularities. They’re troubling. But, the national media has no interest in reporting on the substance of them because it doesn’t fit their liberal, ‘Keep Joe Biden at all cost’ narrative,” the Republican said.
“Over 60 million Americans think this election was manipulated and stolen. That’s more than one third of the electorate. For that reason alone, we owe it to the country to investigate election integrity,” Jordan added in a tweet.
The Texas litigation challenges Biden victories in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, it claims the “four states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”
Paxton said, “By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections.”
Meanwhile Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, slammed the Democrat’s “ridiculous” spending plan during his appearance on FOX Business’ “Mornings with Maria” Tuesday, arguing the massive spending bills will drive up “the price for every good and service.”
“This is all part of the Democrat’s selfish and ridiculous economic plan. Here’s their… economic plan. Lockdown your economy, spend like crazy, pay people not to work. And oh, by the way, for all you Americans have been working hard. We’re going to raise your taxes. Those are four stupid ideas, but that is, in essence, their economic plan.” he said.
“It drives up the price when you do all the spending, drives up the price for every good and service that American families have to buy. And so that is a tax in and of itself. That’s the crazy economic plan. And the idea that you had Republican senators go along with some of this makes no sense to me” he concluded
