Recently, Senator Grassley has commented on Liz Cheney’s removal from her Republican leadership position by stating, “That question isn’t anything that’s on Iowans’ minds……..It’s an inside-the-beltway worry, and not really anything to worry about.”
Senator Grassley has also said that Cheney’s denial of election fraud is a matter for the U.S. House, not the U.S. Senate, again brushing off the seriousness of election fraud allegations.
However, as I travel the state, I have found that Liz Cheney’s criticism of former President Trump’s efforts to expose election fraud has been a serious concern of Iowans.
In a surprising reversal, Senator Grassley tweeted on May 8, “I can’t believe all the hassle w the Arizona senate just checking things out re: election audit makes me suspicious somebody has something to hide. Transparency brings accountability.”
But where was Senator Grassley between election day and January 6 when he voted to certify the questionable election of Joe Biden? Why didn’t Senator Grassley speak out for more investigations then?
Iowans have lost trust in members of Congress who failed to defend months of false accusations against President Trump and then after the election was certified in Biden’s favor, decide to defend a state’s right to investigate election fraud. Strong action should have been taken before January 6, not after.
Iowans are looking for bold leadership in the U.S. Senate. As a candidate for U.S. Senate, I support a full investigation of allegations of election fraud in Iowa and across America. Many other states are already addressing the issue of election fraud. I would go a step further by supporting a uniform national election fraud plan that would require the states to investigate election fraud accusations in the future.
