MONTGOMERY, Ala. — State Rep. Tommy Hanes (R-Bryant) announced his support of Congressman Mo Brooks’ efforts to challenge the results of the Electoral College on the basis of combating voter fraud. 

U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) has pledged to challenge Congress’ certification of the Electoral College, due to what he calls flawed election systems in some states. 

“Congressman Brooks is taking a patriotic stand to ensure the electoral integrity of our great nation is upheld, and we should all stand with him,” says Hanes.

Hanes pointed to the lack of strong voter ID laws in blue states as justification to challenge the results.

“The socialists have waged war on the American electoral system. They have effectively disenfranchised law-abiding American citizens by making it easier for illegal aliens to partake in our elections,” said Hanes. 

Hanes continued, “Foreign nationals have no business telling Americans who their elected officials will be. It’s a blatant attack on our constitution. This is the real foreign interference.”

Hanes is seeking to drum up support from fellow legislators and the public, urging them to stand with Congressman Brooks.

“Congressman Brooks has made it clear that he will not surrender to the radical left. I’m proud to support his fight and I’m hopeful that those in this state who revere the constitution and rule of law will do so as well.”

Hanes concluded by urging state elected officials to take a stand for President Trump.

“The President has always put this great nation first in the face of anti-American opposition from the media and the left-wing mob. We must do what is right as it is now time for us to fight for him.”

Tommy Hanes is a retired firefighter and sitting two-term North Alabama legislator representing House District 23, which encompasses Jackson County and part of DeKalb County.
