Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Sunday declared there was a “great deal of evidence of fraud” and illegal election law changes that merit a “thorough investigation.”
Paul said the election case brought in Wisconsin proved his point that alleged fraud is worth investigating. A federal judge in Wisconsin dismissed a lawsuit filed by Trump challenging Joe Biden’s win there.
“In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on it and no address,” Paul said. “Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren’t. They made special accommodations. It’s a pandemic. They changed the law after the fact. That’s wrong, that’s unconstitutional.”
“I won’t be cowed by liberals in the media who say there’s no evidence here and you’re a liar if you talk about election fraud,” he continued. “Let’s have an open debate this is a free country.”
Paul agreed that former Attorney General William Barr said there was no evidence of fraud in the election, but called that determination “a pronouncement.”
“There’s been no examination, thorough examination of all the states to see what problems we had and see if they could fix them,” he argued.
“I voted to certify the state [Electoral College votes] because I think it would be wrong for Congress to overturn that,” he said.
