Rep. Huizenga says he won't object to electoral college certification, citing lack of evidence
While a number of Republican lawmakers plan to object to the certification of the electoral college Wednesday, United States Representative Bill Huizenga, who represents Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District says, he isn’t one of them.
The comments came during a virtual town hall Tuesday evening hosted by Huizenga, a Republican.
He said that after a thorough investigation by his staff into fraudulent activity surrounding Michigan’s presidential election results, his team ultimately did not find enough evidence of voter tampering, and thus would not object to Michigan’s election results.
“At the end of the day, I am not seeing system wide fraud, not seeing a path of 154,000 votes of fraud, (so) I do not feel that I can object to Michigan’s electors,” Huizenga said. “Especially when the state house and the state senate have no plans to object or offer a second slate of electors, (so) short of additional evidence coming out between today or tomorrow, I do not plan to object to Michigan’s electors,” he said.
Officially, Biden won the state of Michigan by 154,000 votes. Rep. Huizenga said an investigation did find a few hundred fraudulent votes, but no where close to enough that would warrant an objection to the election.
