Anti-Trump Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse took at shot at Josh Hawley for opposing the certification of the electoral college on Wednesday, likening Hawley’s actions to ambitious gamesmanship. Sasse is a longtime anti-Trump Republican, having declined to support or vote for President Trump in either 2016 or 2020.
Sasse claims that objecting to electoral college results will inflict “long term damage” on what he defines as “legitimate self-government.” He described skepticism of pending electoral college results as such in a Facebook Q&A.
Sasse also likened his Republican Senate colleagues to partisan hacks, claiming that the caucus universally understands the 2020 election as legitimate and fair. Multiple Republican Senators, including Tommy Tuberville, Rand Paul, and Ron Johnson have raised questions about the veracity of the election and voter fraud, and Sasse’s accusation levels charges of dishonesty against them.
Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley announced that he intends to challenge certification on the same day.
In a statement, Hawley explained why he intends to challenge Senate certification of an electoral college slate that enthrones Biden as President of the United States. Hawley cites not only Pennsylvania’s flagrant violation of state and federal election law in conducting its election, but an unprecedented censorship campaign on the part of Big Tech monopolies Facebook and Twitter to attack the First Amendment and silence information critical of Biden.

Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville has also suggested he intends to challenge the certification of electoral college results in the Senate. The Republican challenge to the electoral college isn’t a novel development in Congress, with anti-Trump Democrats having sought to overturn the 2016 election on the basis of discredited “Russian interference” conspiracies.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
