LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) — Newly sworn-in Congressman Bob Good announced Tuesday that he plans to reject the Electoral College’s certification.
On Wednesday, Congress is scheduled to certify the Electoral College vote. Dozens of Republicans say they plan to reject the certification of President-elect Joe Biden's 2020 victory.

Good says, "The American people have voiced their concerns about the unprecedented volume of mail-in voting, and violations of longstanding state laws that may have resulted in fraud in the 2020 general election."
He joins about 140 Republicans who will object to Biden electors, including a group of 11 senators led by Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that those supporting certification will “go down in infamy as weak and ineffective.”

“All Americans deserve to have confidence in the integrity and results of the election. It is Congress’ Constitutional duty to uphold and maintain the integrity of our system of government. The American people have voiced their concerns about the unprecedented volume of mail-in voting, and violations of longstanding state laws that may have resulted in fraud in the 2020 general election. On Jan 6th, I will object to the certification of electors in multiple states for which laws were violated or evidence of fraud has not been sufficiently reviewed. This is about ensuring the will of the American people is accurately, justly and constitutionally followed. This vote is about election integrity.”
