Congressman Joe Wilson (R-Springdale) represents Lexington County in the US House of Representatives (SC Dist. 2.) He said he will oppose certification of Joe Biden as presidential election winner.
Wilson issued the following statement, on Thursday:
“As a former Lexington County Election Commissioner, not just as a Member of Congress, I am disgusted at the irregularities in the 2020 presidential election. The failure to validate signatures, the omission of witnesses, the interruption of counting before completion, the denial of poll watchers for access to fully observe, the extension of ballots received beyond Election Day, and the registration of illegal aliens, allowing non-citizens to vote, are all an open invitation for fraud. I had counted on courts to fully consider lawsuits by 18 states and 126 members of Congress, but the Courts have declined to act and it is my duty to object to the Electoral count because irregularities were never addressed.”
The US Congress will be asked to certify the US presidential vote on Wednesday, Jan. 6.
