Scott Franklin on Principles & Values

 

 


Too much partisan fighting cause of do-nothing Congress

The bitterness, the partisan fighting, the animosity. It just isn't getting anything accomplished, and I think that's reflected in the level of distrust and the low approval ratings people have in Congress. Even in the middle of a national crisis like we have now, people can't seem to put the politics aside.

Oppose certification of the 2020 Presidential election.

Franklin voted YEA blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
