Arizona Congressmen Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar are among 18 leaders who have signed a letter penned by Congressman Mo Brooks, asking Congress to intervene and change the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election.
Brooks is challenging the Presidential Election votes and is following through with the threat to ask certain electoral college votes to be thrown out based on President Donald Trump’s allegations of massive voter fraud, News 19 reported. So far every lawsuit that has been filed has been dismissed, including one in the U.S. Supreme Court.
This time Brooks, along with 18 other leaders, are asking Mitch McConnell and others to “do their jobs and conduct voter fraud and election theft hearings and investigations so that Congressmen and Senators will be better informed when Congress faces questions about the legitimacy of various federal elections held on November 3, 2020.” Brooks posted on Facebook and Twitter, calling on Congress to reverse the presidential election results and give the win to Donald Trump.
At the end of the letter, Brooks asks Congress to hold hearings to do three things:
1. Probe all allegations of illegal conduct concerning the November 3, 2020 elections.
2. Investigate systemic problems affecting our elections.
3. Hear from election experts to explore legislative solutions that lessen the impact of fraudulent and illegal votes and restores faith that America can hold a free and fair election.
Political analyst and attorney Mark McDaniel told News19, “Not only does Congressman Brooks have a right to do it. He has a duty to do it if he feels there is a problem with the election, then he should raise objections to it. And I know there will be a number of other members of The House of Representatives that will probably go along with Congressman Brooks on this.”
David Person, political analyst and radio host, has a different opinion on Brooks’ actions. Pearson stated, “This is what’s disturbing about these efforts, by Mo and others. They don’t seem to have the focus or the energy to try to address arguably the largest health crisis of the past 50, 60 years, but they have all of the energy and all of the focus in the world to focus on an election that was lost.”
Biggs and Gosar have both been vocal about their desire to overturn the election results. Gosar recently tweeted, “America! Watch this. A detailed explanation using official AZ Secretary of State raw data. Over 700,000 votes stolen from @realDonaldTrump and given to Biden.”

Other leaders who have signed the letter are Mike D. Rogers, Jim Banks, David Rouzer, Ted Budd, Brian Babin, Bob Gibbs, Ralph Norman, Greg Steube, Jody Hice, Mike Kelly, Jeff Duncan, Louie Gohmert, Randy Weber, Scott DesJarlais, and Mike Garcia.
Brooks needs support from at least one Senator to trigger a debate before Congress. According to a Washington Examiner article, Brooks told Washington Secrets this week, “I’m cautiously optimistic that there will be one or more United States senators who will fight to reject voter fraud and election theft. Ultimately, whether a senator acts on behalf of our country will be determined by whether that senator’s employers, the American people, have made it known to the senators that this is a litmus test issue.” Brooks continued, “Either you fight for America, or voters never vote for them again and fight against them.”
