GOP Sends Out Fake Pence Email Calling 2020 Election 'Contested Takeover,' Then Apologizes

Source: Newsweek

The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) sent out a fundraising email calling the 2020 election a "contested takeover," which it signed with former Vice President Mike Pence's name—but he didn't approve the message.

Pence refused to cave to former President Donald Trump's pressure to not formally certify the official election results on January 6, the day the U.S. Capitol was assaulted. The former vice president went on to attend President Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. In June, Pence said he was "proud" to have certified the official election results early on the morning of January 7.

But on Thursday the NRSC, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate, sent out an email in which Pence appeared to be suggesting that he did not believe the 2020 election results were valid. "Since their contested takeover, the Biden-Harris administration has unleashed a tidal wave of Left-wing policies that threaten to wipe out the progress we made for a safer, more prosperous, more secure America," the email said. Punchbowl News first reported on the email.

The email message was a clear departure from Pence's previous position on the 2020 election. An NRSC spokesperson later admitted that the former vice president had not approved the email and apologized.

1. Next they'll be sending out ones signed by God and Jaysus Christ. They won't have a chance to demand

a retraction.

6. The Big Liars

Thanks to the Roberts Court ruling, “money equals speech,” their false message has stayed at the forefront of the national awareness.

The antidote: the Truth. That is why I had hoped the Congress would investigate immediately and televise the hearings. We wouldn’t be in this mess today.

3. The bigger story here: National Republican official body is endorsing THE BIG LIE


To call the election "contested" at this stage and all the Republican states certified their results is to promote and roll and keep alive THE BIG LIE.

The NRSC is not the top official RepubliQon body, but it is just about the same and, further, it represents 50 RepubliQon Senators.

10. Rewriting History 1984 Style

Great point, Bernardo de La Paz. Official Pukedom continues the Big Lie.

They do not worry how history will judge them. As Ron Suskind reported Karl Turd Blossom Rove to have said:

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

4. Do the irrational jurors supporting the GQP even recognize a judge's command to

"Strike that from the record." How many times do we tend to say, "I can't unsee or unhear that" so that it now influences our cognitive decisions, even though it was not really so clearly misinformation" revealed without our personal research into its' validity.

Just wow, but, cognitively, your comment on this post is sooooo morally, ethically valid - the evils of lust and desire in the heart are so much another human problem...so just why don't women (or any human involved in a co-dependent relationship) not leave it??? Future self-benefit; inability to find support that lifts the burdens of "real life" circumstance? Fatal flaws when love overcomes rational choice? Sensual enjoyment of the "enabling." Social coercion? Is it a simple matter of "getting lucky"? When is a "fresh" start really feasible, for no one is an independent island?

14. PSY Ops

They are first to indoctrinate, fastest to lie, programmed to repeat, and then set to shame all who speak truth. Not only are they organized. They are well-funded.

The liars are awful — damaging Democracy to no end. Who seem the worst are the racists, who brag about the Big Lie: They are the Southern GOP swearing allegiance to the klan. Worst among such are the racists who support them in silence. They are traitors.

In the spirit of Christian charity of course.

15. Hell no. He wanted admiration for being a job creator.

He fired me in the 2009 recession for “management reorganization” a month after I was given a $4000 performance and a month after I voted for Obama. At Christmas...

9. If there ever was a "cuck" in politics its Pence

Allows himself to be tossed around and used by Trump and his cult for whatever they want. Or rather like a cuck who said "no" one time, and they will never forget his insubordination, despite his trying to run back to the cult for acceptance again. They just keep on using and abusing him because he's such a cuck he can't even fight back. He should change his name to "Reek".

16. "We are sorry that we are lying dogs"

Well, this is different-- I have no recollection of the GOP ever having apologized for lying, before...


I'm sure another century will pass before it ever happens again.
