GOP Sens. Blast Corporations for Silence on Dems Who Want to Overturn Iowa Congressional Race

The same corporations had ripped Republicans for objections to electoral vote counts in battleground states...

Four leading Republican Senators are calling on several top-tier businesses to condemn Democrats for contesting the election results in Iowa‘s 2nd Congressional District.

The House Administration Committee will review Iowa’s 2nd Congressional district’s November election results, where Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks defeated Democrat Rita Hart by six votes.

The vote has been recounted and certified, but Hart is contesting the results.

“In January, Democrats and their corporate sponsors attacked the Republicans who questioned state-certified election results,” said Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Now, Democratic party leadership is stealing a state-certified election in Iowa’s 2nd congressional district. If the businesses who condemned Republicans in January don’t condemn Democrats for doing the same, everyone will question whether these companies are truly committed to free elections.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said earlier this month that the review committee could unseat Miller-Meeks and put Hart in office.

Republicans have opposed to this, as expected, but this letter puts additional pressure on the business interests that made a public stand against President Donald Trump and Republicans after the 2020 presidential election.

Senators Cotton, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) signed the letter which is being sent to trade associations, firms and businesses.

“Just a few weeks ago, much of corporate America publicly condemned the actions of members of Congress who voted to overturn a certified election, and even in some cases promised to stop supporting those members,” the letter reads. “We write to ask if you are taking the same position with respect to members of the House of Representatives who are poised to overturn a state-certified election in the second Congressional district in Iowa.”

According to the Senators, the letter “will be sent to Marriott, Hallmark, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, AirBNB, The Chamber of Commerce, AT&T, Verizon, Dow Chemical, Walt Disney, Intel, Cisco, Mastercard, Nike, and Edison.”

The Republican Senators say Pelosi and these business leaders should stay consistent on the issue of election integrity.

“We are asking you to apply the same standard to this attempt to overturn an election that you applied to the Republicans who objected to certain states’ electoral votes, and publicly condemn the actions of the Democrats who are seeking to overturn the state-certified election of Representative Miller-Meeks,” the letter reads. “The people—not politicians—are responsible for electing their representatives. Our democracy depends on this”
