Louie Gohmert Sues Mike Pence


Wait, what?

Representative Louis Gohmert A Republican of Texas just filed a lawsuit against Vice President Mike Pence.

Don’t worry friends, it’s actually a good thing!

Gohmert’s lawsuit requests a federal judge in Texas to strike down the Electoral Count Act of 1887  as unconstitutional, and to grant Pence full authority to choose pro-Trump electors.

If passed by the Supreme Court, Trump will without a doubt remain in office.

Yahoo News covered Gohmert’s suit and shared these details:

Representative Louis Gohmert (R., Texas) filed a lawsuit against Vice President Mike Pence on Monday, in an attempt to grant Pence the authority to overturn the results of the general elections.

Congress will certify the election results on January 6, in a session presided over by the vice president. The Electoral Count Act of 1887 requires the vice president to affirm the winner of the elections, in a largely ceremonial capacity.

However, Gohmert’s suit requests a federal judge in Texas to strike down the 1887 law as unconstitutional, and to grant Pence authority to appoint pro-Trump electors. The move would effectively ensure that Trump returns to office.


Newsmax chipped in too:

A group of congressional Republicans led by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert are suing Vice President Mike Pence to prevent him from confirming Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

On Jan. 6, Pence is set to preside over Congress’ meeting to count the Electoral College votes, which will officially cement Biden as the next president, according to the 1887 Electoral Count Act that designates the vice president as the official to preside over the meeting.

The lawsuit, which lists Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward among almost a dozen additional plaintiffs, claims that any action that declares Biden the winner of the election will be fraudulent.
