Stop #IA02 Steal: Senate Republicans Demand Corporations Stop Donations to Democrats Behind Effort To Oust Republican Certified Winner
“We are asking you to apply the same standard to this attempt to overturn an election that you applied to the Republicans who objected to certain states’ electoral votes, and publicly condemn the actions of the Democrats”
When some Republicans objected to the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, Democrats called it a threat to democracy. Woke corporations fell in line and shut off donations to the GOP.
Now that Democrats are trying to overturn a certified House race in Iowa, Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the Senate are demanding an equal reaction.
Karen Townsend reports at Hot Air:
McConnell, Senate GOP Demand Corporations Halt Donations To Democrats Trying To Steal Iowa House Seat
Major corporations quickly came out with announcements of pausing donations to Republican lawmakers who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s election victory in January. Specifically, the closing of the corporate coffers was a reaction to the Capitol Hill riot on January 6. Now there is a House race in Iowa which Democrats are trying to steal from the Republican who has been certified by state officials as the winner. Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, now demand that turnabout is fair play.
If the corporations making a statement against overturning the results of an election are sincere, it should not be a problem to speak out against a brazen power grab by House Democrats. In this case, the House seat being challenged is held by Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks. Her victory in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional district, by just six votes, was certified and she was seated by Speaker Pelosi. Miller-Meeks’ Democrat opponent, however, is continuing to claim that the election results should not be certified because she challenges 22 votes in her race.
McConnell and other Republican senators wrote a letter to the business community about this:
Cotton, McConnell, Ernst, Grassley Send Letter to Businesses Regarding Democrats’ Theft of Iowa House Seat
Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today sent a letter to trade associations, firms, and businesses who spoke out about Republicans objecting to the electoral college. The letter asks these businesses to hold the Democrats attempting to overturn the election results in Iowa’s second congressional district to the same standard…
“Just a few weeks ago, much of corporate America publicly condemned the actions of members of Congress who voted to overturn a certified election, and even in some cases promised to stop supporting those members. We write to ask if you are taking the same position with respect to members of the House of Representatives who are poised to overturn a state-certified election in the second Congressional district in Iowa.”
“We are asking you to apply the same standard to this attempt to overturn an election that you applied to the Republicans who objected to certain states’ electoral votes, and publicly condemn the actions of the Democrats who are seeking to overturn the state-certified election of Representative Miller-Meeks. If you decide to not speak out about this brazen attempt to steal an election, some may question the sincerity of your earlier statements and draw the conclusion that your actions were partisan instead of principled.”
Jen Psaki was asked about this specifically this week. Apparently, the Joe Biden White House is just fine with what the Democrats are doing:
