A List of Ways Rob Wittman Could Have Aired Concerns About the 2020 Election

Rob Wittman may or may not believe [1] widespread voter fraud actually occurred in the 2020 Election. But facing angry constituents whipped into believing the lie that the election was stolen, Wittman voted anyway on Wednesday to throw out the electors selected by Pennsylvania voters.

Wittman was already facing a backlash when he announced his decision [2]. That backlash only intensified when Trump supporters stormed the capitol in a deadly riot, trying to overturn the election – and then Rob Wittman still voted to try and overturn the election.

Now, Wittman swears up-and-down he wasn’t actually trying to throw out the electors selected by Pennsylvania voters when he voted to throw out the electors selected by Pennsylvania voters. Instead [3]:

He said his decision not to certify the Pennsylvania electors was meant to air the concerns he’s heard about the way officials handled that election. His aim was to discuss those concerns with the hope of fixing any problems for future elections.

I’ve always liked Rob Wittman, and have written posts supportive of him in the past [4]. In the same spirit of support, I took the time to collect a list of methods for airing concerns and discussing them with the hope of fixing those problems for future elections.
