Iowa CD-04 Representative Randy Feenstra (R)
The day after 06 Jan 2021, Sir Brave Randy released this statement:
Date: 07 Jan 2021
“When I was sworn into office on Sunday, with my hand on our family’s Bible, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Today, that is what I’ll do. The Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution states, ‘The person having the greatest Number of [Electoral College] votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed.’ To date, no state has sent a new slate of electors — even though they have the constitutional power to do so. Therefore, the results of the Electoral College will stand.
I will always be a strong advocate and supporter of efforts to uphold the security and trust Americans have in our election system, such as implementing strict voter ID laws like we have here in Iowa. That is why I signed on to a letter with my freshman colleagues urging House leadership to take action and support the integrity of our election process.
Free, fair, and legal elections are the cornerstone of our Republic, and even one case of fraud is one case too many. Congress must immediately hold hearings on election integrity so Iowans and all Americans can once again have faith in our elections.”
In his short statement, he is partially correct about the 12th Amendment, and thus is content to let the results stand without due consideration for the Guarantee Clause and other exceptions as presented at a prior post The Timid Politician. Like his colleagues from Iowa, he calls for House leadership to take action to support the integrity of our election process, but as long as Nancy Pelosi and the Demonrats remain in control, this will never happen.

Time is running out for Rep Feenstra to get off the fence or get run over by the Audit Train.
