Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the House minority whip, again refused to say that the 2020 election wasn’t stolen, supporting Donald Trump’s unfounded election denialism that Pres. Biden won because of mass voter fraud. Image
‘If you look at a number of states, they didn’t follow their state-passed laws that govern the election for president,’ Scalise said during a Fox News interview on Sunday.
‘That is what the United States Constitution says. They don’t say the states determine what the rules are. They say the state legislatures determine the rules,’ Scalise added.
Trump’s former Attorney General William Barr found no evidence of election corruption.
According to the Associated Press, during a rally in Iowa on Sat, Trump spent almost 30 minutes fabricating that he had won Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania in the 2020 election. Trump has also made a point of shaming GOP members who didn’t buy his ‘election was stolen’ claims.
