Congresswoman-Elect Kat Cammack (FL-03) Statement On Objecting To Electoral College Results Certification On January 6
“Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our constitutional republic. Without an electoral process based on integrity and strict, secure standards, our republic is lost. Given my constitutional duty and the fact that thousands of sworn affidavits detailing specific election irregularities remain unresolved, I will object to the electoral college certification process on January 6.
The laws established by each State are paramount to our system of representational government. Under Article 2, Section 1, the Constitution declares, “each State shall appoint, in such manner, as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors…” This ensures the people of each State have a voice in the process. However, if the laws passed by State legislatures are subverted by governors, then the requirements under the Constitution are not met and I have no choice but to object to their certification in the House.
Earlier in December, I led a letter
, co-signed by dozens of my fellow Republican freshmen, to Speaker Pelosi urging her to support the integrity of the election process after November’s general election revealed thousands of instances of fraud nationwide. Not only did these requests go ignored, but Speaker Pelosi has turned a blind eye to the glaring election irregularities in several states, from accepting absentee and mail-in ballots with unverified signatures to restrictions on bipartisan poll watchers to the blatant ignorance of state election laws.
The importance of election security and integrity may be lost on the liberal left, but I will not stop fighting until we get to the bottom of the discrepancies that have affected our general election. This problem is a bipartisan one; doing nothing affects all Americans and our future elections for generations to come. We all deserve and expect free and fair elections. Guaranteeing this right is essential to protecting the future of our country and I will not sit idly by without an investigation into these fraudulent activities.”
Congresswoman-Elect Kat Cammack (R-FL-03) will be the youngest Republican woman serving in the 117th Congress. She is a small business owner with grit, who grew up on a cattle ranch. She is a third-generation sandblaster, an alumnus of the United States Naval War College, and was the former Deputy Chief of Staff for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District prior to her election.
Kat is married to her husband Matt, a Gainesville native, who is a Firefighter/Paramedic & SWAT Medic. Together, they co-founded a non-profit organization called “The Grit Foundation,” whose mission is to support local law enforcement, veterans, and first responders.
