117th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. RES. 15

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 4, 2021

(for himself, Mr. Phillips, Ms. Spanberger, Ms. Sherrill, Ms. Garcia of Texas, Ms. Wild, and Ms. Craig) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on House Administration

RESOLUTION

Affirming that Members of Congress who were elected for the 117th Congress from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin were freely and fairly elected under lawful, constitutional procedures.

Whereas Members of Congress who were elected for the 117th Congress from all 50 States, including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, were elected on November 3, 2020, on the same ballots as those used to elect the 46th President of the United States, and votes for these Members were cast in the same manner and counted by the same election workers employing the same mechanisms, and following the same rules and procedures, as votes cast for candidates for President;

Whereas any legal or practical deficiencies in the conduct of the election in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that enabled fraud or corruption in the Presidential election would have enabled similar fraud or corruption in the election of Members of Congress representing these States; and

Whereas no evidence of fraud or corruption has been presented to the House that might have prevented the seating of Members from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and these Members took their oaths of office on January 3, 2020: Now therefore be it

That the House of Representatives affirms that Members of Congress who were elected for the 117th Congress from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin were freely and fairly elected under lawful, constitutional procedures established by their respective States that should inspire confidence among the American people.
