The Journal Sentinel reports that after the Electoral College voting, Senator Ron Johnson accepts Joe Biden as the President-elect, but, but, there are still irregularities.
One day after the Electoral College affirmed Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential victory, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, said in an interview that he acknowledged Biden as the president-elect and believed the election was legitimate.
At the same time, Johnson plans to hold a Senate hearing Wednesday on election “irregularities,” saying there are “legitimate questions” about the way the election was administrated in Wisconsin and other states.
“All I’m trying to do is hold a very upfront, straightforward hearing talking about what controls there are in place, what fraud does occur, what can we do to prevent fraud in the future,” said Johnson in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Johnson contended there are unanswered questions about the election process.
But asked if he regarded the election as “legitimate,” he said, “Yes. I haven’t seen anything that would convince me that the results — the overall national result — would be overturned.”
Sigh…it’s over. Can we please get on with governing?? At least finalize and pass the next really necessary pandemic support bill. These distractions are unbecoming the US Senate.
