Mo Brooks plans to challenge Electoral College vote

Rep. Mo Brooks says he plans to challenge the Electoral College vote when Congress is expected to officially certify President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory on Jan. 6.

The Alabama Republican says he is also looking for a GOP senator to join him in the effort, though he said he has had no direct communication with any senator thus far.

“In my judgment, based on what I know to be true, Joe Biden was the largest beneficiary of illegally cast votes in the history of the United States,” Brooks said in a phone interview with today. “And I can either ratify that illegal vote system, or I can object to it, in hopes that our election system will become more secure in future elections.”

Brooks said he may still object to the vote counting process by himself, even though he acknowledged to Politico that would be more of a symbolic protest.

“That was the worrying thing for me – he clearly has a problem with those injuries.”

Brook won his first 36 bouts, including an impressive points victory over American Shawn Porter to claim the IBF welterweight title in California in 2014.

But he broke his right eye socket in defeat by middleweight Golovkin in 2016 before suffering the same injury
