Former U.S. Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA) signed a letter this week addressed to Iowa Sens. Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley, as well as current Iowa U.S. Reps. Ashley Hinson and Marianette Miller-Meeks, that calls on those elected officials to support Rep. Mo Brooks’ (R-AL) objections to electors from states with disputed election results on Wednesday Jan. 6.
“I write this letter to voice my strong support for Rep. Brooks’ call for the investigations into the widespread election irregularities, and to ask in particular Senator Grassley, Senator Ernst, and all of Iowa’s congressional delegation to voice their support for the Senate to join Rep. Brooks in his objections to the dubious electors out forth by Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nevada,” the letter states.
Blum goes on to cite numerous instances of irregularities and outright fraud in the aforementioned battleground states, including statistical anomalies, voting machine irregularities, fraudulent ballots, improbable margins of victory when compared to ballot totals, and violations of the Equal Protection Clause.
“Our judiciary has sadly refused to listen to the many claims of impropriety, and as such, has not availed itself of the opportunity to judge the evidence of the numerous such cases on their merits,” Blum writes. “Given this, it is up to the Congress to offer a venue in which a proper, thorough hearing can take place.”
The letter continues, “Accordingly, I call on the all of Iowa’s Republican leaders, including Senators Ernst and Grassley, to stand with Mo Brooks and Donald Trump and challenge the electors from contested states as they fight to defend our republic with a full Congressional investigation and vote on electors presented before the Joint Session on January 6th, 2021.”
