Deplorable. They want to make sure the next coup attempt succeeds:

House Republican leaders are urging their members to vote against legislation, expected to come to the floor as early as Wednesday, that seeks to revise a 135-year-old law to prevent future presidents from trying to overturn election results through Congress.
A notice to GOP members distributed by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) called the legislation “the Democrats’ latest attempt at a federal takeover of elections in order to stack the electoral deck in their favor.”
The legislation, proposed by Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), would reaffirm that the vice president has no role in validating a presidential election beyond acting as a figurehead who oversees the counting process, barring them from changing the results.
The Presidential Election Reform Act (PERA) also would expand the threshold necessary for members of both chambers to object to a state’s results, as well as clarify the role governors play in the process.
The inspiration for the legislation was President Donald Trump’s attempt to use the counting of electoral votes by Congress on Jan. 6, 2021, to reverse the election results. During the process, 139 House Republicans supported the challenge of at least one state’s results.
“The Majority is rushing this legislation to the floor, bypassing the committee process altogether, without any consultation from Republicans on committees of jurisdiction or even their Senate colleagues, further emphasizing the fact that this is a political messaging exercise prior to the midterms that undermines election integrity,” said the document distributed by Scalise’s office.

This is just proving the House can't trust the stink'n corrupt Cons in the House being led by brain dead Scalise.

you can’t always get what you want!
I suppose would have shut up a whole bunch of Dem election deniers in 2016, wouldn't it have
Democratic deniers?
Titan....you are trying to bullshit folks here. Dems were pissed after 2016 results and many started questioning the role/function and purpose of the electoral college......but NONE ever "denied" Trump won the election.
A "denier" was invented after the 2020 election when Republicans/MAGAts openly questioned the election process and never were able to provide the Courts or the States any shred of evidence, other than bullshit, lies and innuendo. And when ALL this was debunked, a "denier" simply refuses to believe what happened might be the truth.
Titan.....I await your apology.....as does the rest of the HROT family. Shame on you. (Most of us are smarter than you and yours.)
