Tiffany violates his oath of office
Once again, Rep. Tiffany has demonstrated his contempt for our Constitution and, the rule of law.
Hours after President Trump incited a violent mob to ransack our nation’s capitol, Tiffany cast a vote to overturn the will of voters in Arizona and Pennsylvania and, stated he would have usurped Wisconsin’s voters given the chance. This places him squarely in the Sedition Caucus, members of Congress who joined an insurrection built on lies they told their constituents. This is unacceptable. The truth is: Joe Biden won by more than 7 million votes and, despite dozens of lawsuits, not one Judge – including Trump appointees – has found evidence of consequential voter fraud.
WI Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman said this regarding Tiffany’s vote to overrule the states:
“I am sure that James Madison and Alexander Hamilton are spinning in their graves. The idea that the President would be determined by a vote of Congress is both absurd and dangerous.”
WI Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher said: “The idea that Congress — not the people in the states — gets to choose the president and the vice president would surprise the Framers. It would stun millions of Americans.” He accused legislators objecting to Biden’s victory of falsely encouraging Trump supporters to think the results could be overturned, culminating in the Capitol riot.
Both Grothman and Gallagher voted to reject the objections and affirm Biden’s election. But not Tiffany, he shamefully put his own political ambition ahead of his oath of office and perpetuated Trump’s false claims. He must be held accountable.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has called for Tiffany and Messrs. Johnson and Fitzgerald, to resign. I agree.
If you do too, please call Tiffany’s office and let him know: 202-225-3365.
Donald Trump, mocking America
Look Papa, the Emperor has no clothes. Anyone who has read that tale to their children or heard it themselves as children, remembers the essence of that story.
Trump consorted and encouraged the white supremacists and Nazi cults, and they took care of the job he wanted.
Thousands of good Americans went to Washington D.C. to stand for what they were told through Fox News and Twitter, that their vote didn’t count. I know I would have gone, too, because I’ve stood on street corners to plead good causes. With out, by the way, of getting my picture in the local papers.
But Trump had another agenda. He used those people for his own neurotic cause.
I can imagine their horror when they realized what was happening to our Capital’s buildings.
Many of us have looked away at his moral nakedness when he allowed over 500 Hispanic children to be lost from their parents. And we ignored that Trump was allowing the North American Indians land and the National parks to be mined. And he flaunted the wearing of the mask to help stop covid 19.
But on Jan. 6, 2021, a real day of infamy, we saw the soul and character of Donald Trump, mocking America.
