Lawmakers questioned certification of presidential election
WASHINGTON – (INT) – Two of the longest-serving members of the Inland Empire’s 7-member Congressional delegation were among the 147 Republicans who questioned the certification of the presidential election.
They were Ken Calvert of Corona and 50th District representative Darrell Issa.
Calvert said many of his constituents were “deeply concerned by the integrity of the election. I remain especially troubled by Constitutionally questionable changes of voting rules in some states by authorities other than state legislatures. I believe we need a thorough investigation of those instances of alleged voter fraud or irregularities,” he wrote.
Calvert said he supports “a forensic investigation of all serious allegations of voter fraud and my objection today reflects the concerns I have that must be remedied for future elections.”
Issa returned to Congress and was sworn-in Sunday replacing Duncan Hunter who resigned last year over ill-spent campaign contributions.
Calvert was first elected to Congress in 1992 and is the senior member of the Inland Empire delegation.
