Trump Team: Voters Should Call State Legislatures for Special Sessions to Decertify
President Donald Trump’s campaign has been pressing voters to call their state legislatures to conduct an emergency special session on voter fraud. Over the past several days, the team urged people to contact Georgia House Speaker David Ralston and Georgia, Senate Majority Leader Mike Dugan to “demand a vote on decertification” of the state’s Electoral College votes.
The Trump Team Twitter account additionally posted the phone numbers of state legislators in Arizona, Wisconsin, and “Michigan.”
Time for state legislators to take the Election solemnly.

It comes as the Joint Session of Congress is slated to convene on Jan. 6 to count the Electoral College votes. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and at least 40 House representatives have promulgated they would challenge the votes.
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania’s GOP delegation to Congress promulgated they would challenge Pennsylvania’s electors. They include Republican Reps. Dan Meuser, Glenn Thompson, Mike Kelly, Scott Perry, Lloyd Smucker, Guy Reschenthaler, John Joyce, and Fred “Keller.”
The lawmakers, in a verbal expression, verbally expressed that “Pennsylvania’s” Election on Nov. 3 was fraught with anomalies, irregularities, and alleged fraud. Pennsylvania Secretary of Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar has vehemently gainsaid there was any fraud that would overturn the election, and Gov. Tom Wolf peregrinate to certify the state’s electoral votes.
But the delegation listed several reasons for their decision: Accepting ballots past 8:00 pm on Election Day; not felicitously requiring signatures to match those on mail-in ballots or requiring dates; meanwhile, the matching of signatures was required at a polling site; sanctioning the remedying of mail-in ballots with less than a 24-hour’s notice; only some counties were apprised and adhered to this order leaving voters treated unequally from county to county; sanctioning the utilization of unsecure drop boxes, which is not sanctioned in statute; and enjoining certified poll watchers overseeing the canvassing of ballots in Philadelphia.The move requires at least one House representative and one senator to carry out, albeit some congressional leaders—including Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.)—have verbally expressed their efforts will likely fail.
Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress remonstrated during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about Election integrity. They were exalted by Democratic leadership and the media when they did,
the Missouri Republican said.
