Last Friday Rep. Fleischmann was given a petition signed by 438 citizens from our district. It said in part “..we are asking you to publicly disclose the fact-based evidence supporting your vote not to certify the election results from other U.S. states.”
So far he has given no evidence. His vote helped promote that there was fraud in the election which resulted in stealing the outcome.
The allegation could and did lead angry people to violent acts. So far his vote was based on “people are saying” evidence. He said one in four Americans do not believe the election was legitimate. He said the overwhelming calls from the district had questions about voting irregularities. Those statements are opinion, not evidence. Either he has real actual evidence or he doesn’t.
He is in the same position as Senators Blackburn and Hagerty who were going to vote with him until the violence that they helped sow literally blew up around them when the terrorists attacked our Capitol. The evidence or lack of evidence they all had in deciding to vote for this will be known at some point. If there is no evidence they should admit that now so that further violence would be less likely. This is the honorable and patriotic path.
