Incoming House Republicans, led by Congresswoman-elect Kat Cammack, are urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to investigate the 2020 election.
The newly-elected U.S. Representative didn’t mince words in a letter she championed alongside 25 other freshmen lawmakers. The letter highlights the concerns of the 2020 election and calls for Pelosi to conduct a complete accountability report to “support the integrity” of the election process.
“As members-elect of the 117th Congress, we urge you to promptly act to support the integrity of our election process. Multiple states engaged in litigation and thousands of witnesses have submitted sworn affidavits of reported fraud related to the 2020 presidential election,” the coalition penned in the letter. “One thing is clear — our elections process has devolved into chaos. As elected representatives of the People’s House, we are tasked with voicing the concerns of our constituents, and they are deeply concerned with the integrity of our elections.
“The American people expect and deserve free and fair elections, and any reported fraudulent activities surrounding the 2020 presidential election should be thoroughly investigated,” the letter continues.
The joint letter comes as many Republicans in the House question the election between Democrat Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, while Senate Republicans have largely pushed back against the notion –with Senators like John Thune (R-SD) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) urging lawmakers to accept the results.
Cammack also joined Martha McCallum on Fox News Tuesday night to discuss the letter, saying a failure to examine reported irregularities could have broader implications for future elections.
“This whole situation is not just about the 2020 election — this is about the future of our constitutional republic,” Cammack told McCallum when asked why she backed the letter. “If people don’t have confidence in the elections, then what are we doing here?
Cammack, who won a crowded GOP primary to replace her former boss — outgoing Republican U.S. Representative Ted Yoho — became the youngest Republican woman elected to Congress when she won the election for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District in November. The former deputy chief of staff is part of an influx of 17 newly-elected women who add diversity and bolster the GOP ranks in Congress.
Cammack and her colleagues say they’re committed to adding transparency to the election and fighting back against the radical left.
“The American people deserve answers,” she said following her interview. “We must have confidence in our elections. Anything less is unacceptable.”
Other Republicans endorsing the letter include Scott Franklin (FL-15), Byron Donalds (FL-19), Madison Cawthorn (NC-11), and Burgess Owens (UT-04).
