Does anyone remember in 2000..... there were no senators who would object to the electoral vote?

I am referring to the event on Jan. 6 when the Vice President accepts the counted ballots from each state at a joint session of Congress.

Members of Congress can object to any state's vote count, provided objection is presented in writing and is signed by at least one member of each house of Congress. An objection supported by at least one senator and one representative will be followed by the suspension of the joint session and by separate debates and votes in each House of Congress; after both Houses deliberate on the objection, the joint session is resumed. A state's certificate of vote can be rejected only if both Houses of Congress vote to accept the objection. In that case, the votes from the State in question are simply ignored. The votes of Arkansas and Louisiana were rejected in the presidential election of 1872.[61]


Is it possible that there could be a senator to object this time? I am clinging to any straw at this point.

Apologies if this was previously posted. Maybe we need to review it though.

I feel the same way.

I knew he wouldn't do anything bold and daring, but I thought it was a total let down. After it was over, I wondered why he even bothered.

For those who say, what did you expect.... a few words to those who are still hurting might have been welcomed. This election tore apart families and communities and is putting a dark cloud over the holidays for many dedicated democrats. Telling us that we didn't pay attention to the intel reports or that we didn't focus enough on the issues was insulting. WE did, it was the media who let us down.

And what I really expected was something more forceful, like I have issued a stern warning to Putin and I have accepted Comey's resignation. Wishful thinking.

Obama vows action against Russia for hacks

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama on Thursday vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio.
Describing potential countermeasures by the US, the President said "some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be."
He said he directly confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about a potential US response, and said his counterpart acknowledged his stance.
"Mr. Putin is well aware of my feelings about this, because I spoke to him directly about it," Obama said.
