Liz Cheney GOES AFTER Trump Supporters – Proposes Bill To Make It Harder To Overturn Elections

Cheney Wants to Reform Electoral Count Act, Essentially Blocking Another Trump Run

Cheney Wants to Reform Electoral Count Act

(ReliableNews.org) – Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WI) lost the 2022 GOP primary election for her seat in August. The lawmaker went from one of the most important members of Republican House leadership to a pariah in just over a year. Now, the conservative is calling for reforms.

On September 18, the Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece written by Cheney and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA). The two lawmakers said they are introducing a bill to reform the Electoral Count Act. They explained their proposal will stand on four principles:

  1. The vice president has no authority to reject electoral counts from states, issue rulings that would do so, or delay the vote in any way.
  2. Congress should only be able to object to electoral slates on very narrow grounds.
  3. Governors must transmit the election results to Congress, and if they fail to do so, candidates should be allowed to sue them.
  4. States shouldn’t be allowed to retroactively change the law to alter the outcome of elections.

Cheney and Lofgren said their proposal is an attempt to prevent another January 6 incident from ever happening again. The lawmakers described the actions by former President Donald Trump after Joe Biden was declared a winner as an “effort to steal a presidential election.” The ex-POTUS has always rejected those allegations, saying he just wanted to make sure all legal votes were counted.

What do you think about the proposal?
