Congressman Randy Feenstra, who represents one of our nation’s most conservative districts and recently replaced Steve King, voted to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.
It’s astounding considering the circumstances.
On Dec. 15, Feenstra signed a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to launch an investigation into the 2020 Presidential Election.
“One thing is clear — our elections process has devolved into chaos,” the letter said. “As elected representatives of the People’s House, we are tasked with voicing the concerns of our constituents, and they are deeply concerned about the integrity of our elections.”
The letter highlighted “verified reports” of absentee and mail-in ballots with missing or unverified signatures, missing and unaccounted voting machine memory cards and restrictions on bipartisan election observers during critical phases of the election process.
“Guaranteeing every U.S. citizen’s right to vote in a free and fair election is key to protecting our Constitutional Republic, and it is the duty of each of us to ensure that right,” the letter said. “Our constituents demand that these reported gross violations of our electoral process are investigated seriously with the intent of restoring confidence in our electoral process.”
In order to “restore” confidence in the electoral process, that must mean confidence has been lost, right? And if confidence was lost, it must have been lost for a reason, right?
Yet Feenstra voted for the certification of Biden’s win.
Take a look at what Feenstra promised over and over and over on Twitter during his campaign:
“Let’s do (President Donald Trump) a favor and nominate an effective conservative that will win in 2020 and will be a defender of his agenda, not a distraction.”
“Incredible night with President Donald Trump in Iowa tonight. He deserves effective conservative leaders in Congress who will help him Make America Great Again. Keep up the great work, Mr. President.”
“In Iowa, President Donald Trump won big, and we have voter ID. This ensures safe and secure elections. This is what the President is fighting for. We need Voter ID across the country to ensure the integrity of our elections. Faith in our electoral process is fundamental to our republic.”
He promised to “work” with President Trump to protect life, end taxpayer funding of abortion and build the wall.
Feenstra criticized his Democrat opponent, J.D. Scholten because if Scholten would have won he likely would have voted for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House.
Yet in reality, Feenstra and Scholten would have voted identically when it comes to certifying the Electoral College results.
Feenstra called for counting “every legal vote” on Nov. 9, 2020. He also said every legal challenge from President Trump “must be heard.”
He tweeted that President Trump needs an “effective conservative” in Congress fighting to Make America Great Again.
Feenstra even had the audacity to ridicule Steve King for not being on the Judiciary Committee to help President Trump during the impeachment sham…yet in one of his first votes as a member of Congress, Feenstra flat out knifed President Trump — and his supporters — in the back.
“Congressman Steve King was nowhere to be found in today’s Judiciary Committee for the impeachment sham. Why? His bizarre actions got him kicked off his committees. King failed President Donald Trump and has left Iowans without a voice. It’s time for new effective conservative leadership.”
“Sadly today Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler see their long-term impeachment plan come to a vote. Iowans were left without a voice or seat at the table because our Congressman has been removed from the Judiciary Committee. King has let us down, and let President Trump down.”
“When President Trump needs him most, Congressman King is unable to help due to his bizarre behavior and his removal from key committees. As the Judiciary Committee continues the sham impeachment process, Iowans are once again left without a seat at the table.”
How incredibly rich to lambast King for something King had zero control over — such as his removal from committees. To say that Congressman King “let down” President Trump.
Yet here we are in January of 2021 and Feenstra just completely turned his back on the President, election integrity and the conservative base.
Disappointing. Disheartening. Disgusting.
