Sen. Lankford joins Cruz, says he’ll object to electoral college vote without a new election probe

Saturday, GOP Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma tweeted “today, I am joining a group of Senators to propose an election commission to resolve the electoral issues.”

Lankford writes “Millions of Americans, including thousands of Oklahomans, still have significant questions about the November 3 election process. We have reports of problems with voting machines, people voting twice, non-residents voting in a state, or people mysteriously voting after their death months or years before. In some states, there were problems with signature verification, different rules for mail-in ballots than in-person ballots, delayed receipt of ballots, inconsistent curing of ballots, a lack of meaningful access to the polls, or a questionable counting process for partisan poll watchers. Many of these questions have been reviewed by state leaders and courts, but questions still persist. These are not questions that exist in the dark corners of the internet, but ones I hear at the grocery store, the gas station, through text messages, and on phone calls.”

He adds “for the sake of the nation’s unity, these questions should not be ignored.”
