A group of House Republicans is calling on congressional leaders to hold election fraud hearings.
In a tweet on Friday, Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.) said he’s joining the push along with seven of his colleagues. These colleagues include Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), Rep. David Rouzer (R-.N.C.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas).
Proud to join @RepMoBrooks to DEMAND that Congress hold hearings into election integrity before the January 6th Electoral College vote.

In a letter to top Republicans and Democrats, the lawmakers said the courts have not held any hearings despite dozens of lawsuits alleging fraud in the 2020 elections.
Thank you for joining me, Rep.-Elect Greene!

They believe Congress should immediately look at all of the evidence of alleged voter fraud, illegal voting and election theft. The group wants action before Congress meets next month to count the electoral college votes.
