Congressman Biggs Stands for Election Integrity
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs took a stand for election integrity in the United States of America, objecting to the Electoral College counts from Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Nevada.
He prepared the following remarks for delivery on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives during debate for the objection of Arizona’s Electoral College count:
“I join the objections to counting votes of electors from my home state of Arizona, as well as, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Nevada because election integrity is the heart of our American Constitutional republic.
In a representative form of Government we must be able to trust that our elections accurately represent the will of the American voter.
This is the appropriate forum, anticipated and provided for by our founders, to debate whether this election complied with the Constitution that we have all sworn to protect. Every particular of the constitution is to be protected, including Article 2, Section 1.
The debate as to the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election has been suppressed by the left and its propogandists in the media….until today.
State legislatures are required to determine the manner in which electors are chosen. [Art 2, Sec. 1.]
Arizona names its electors on the general election ballot and identifies what candidate those electors are required to vote for should that candidate obtain the majority of votes in the general election.
As part of the manner for determining electors, Arizona also establishes deadlines for voter registration. The deadline has been in place for 30 years.
This year that voter registration deadline was October 5. Early voting commenced 2 days later.
Five days before the deadline a group filed a lawsuit demanding that Arizona election officials not enforce the deadline.
The Federal District Court decided that since other states have a deadline later than Arizona’s and some even allow for registration when voting, that Arizona’s new deadline would be at a time he chose—not, the legislature’s timeline.
The Appellate Court, effectively overturned the lower court ruling and noted that the Arizona deadline, established by the State Legislature was sound and appropriate, but the Appellate Court merely shortened the bypassing of the deadline to 10 days.
The Appellate Court, without legal justification, also decided that everyone who registered after the deadline, but before the deadline created by judicial fiat, could still vote.
Note that the Arizona legislature was no longer in control of determining the manner of appointing presidential electors, because the court had set a new deadline—even though the Appellate Court found the legislature’s deadline was constitutionally sound.
During that period more than 32,000 voters registered in Maricopa County alone. Here are copies of those voter registration records.
In going around the deadline set by the legislature the court ignored the Arizona Legislature’s obligation to direct the manner for choosing presidential electors as set forth in Art.2, Sec.1.
As a consequence of that judicial usurpation more than 32,000 people were allowed to unlawfully cast ballots in Arizona’s presidential election in 2020.
The Arizona Legislature seeks an independent audit of the election. The Governor refuses to call them into a special session. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has refused to comply with legislative subpoenas.
In Arizona the people who control the evidence related to the election have done everything possible to prevent an independent audit directed by the legislature.
Arizonans have used the limited amount of records available to investigate the 2020 presidential election.
Of a sample of 1000 addresses of voters, they found 539 voters DID NOT LIVE at the addresses on the voter rolls.
I object to counting the votes of Arizona electors because the federal courts went around the legislatively constructed mechanism for choosing Arizona’s presidential electors allowing tens of thousands of voters to unlawfully cast votes. The court usurped a key component of the Arizona legislature’s manner of selecting presidential electors, thus violating Article 2, Sec 1; the legislature is being obstructed in its efforts to analyze the integrity of the 2020 presidential election and what little information we have received indicates a significant problem with the integrity of the presidential election.
I ask that my comments together with the voter registration records that reflect the 32,000 registrations permitted in contravention of state law; letters and resolutions from Arizona legislators pertaining to the count of votes from electors; along with approximately 1000 affidavits and declarations pertaining to potential voter fraud in Arizona in the 2020 presidential election; and the statement of Congressman Randy Weber of Texas be made a part of the record.”
