Jacobs failed to speak out against false claims of election fraud

Posted 5 January 2022 at 3:55 pm


Congressman Chris Jacobs publicly demonstrated his disdain for our democracy one year ago. Editorials, (1/7/21), across the state, including the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal stated that Mr. Jacobs actions aided and abetted terrorist and our enemies. The Buffalo News called Mr. Jacobs “cowardly, dishonest and unpatriotic.”

Mr. Jacobs claimed that he was objecting to certifying the election because of irregularities or possible fraud in the election in two states: Arizona and Pennsylvania. But let’s get real, both states had investigated all claims of irregularities and the courts had found no evidence of legitimate fraud.

Arizona’s Republican Governor, Doug Ducey, even bragged about how free and fair his state’s election was stating: “We do elections well here in Arizona. The system is strong and that’s why I bragged on it so much.”

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell told members of Congress that objecting to certifying the election could be the “death spiral” of our democracy.

Mr. Jacobs did not and does not care. Mr. Jacobs demonstrated his disdain for states conducting election, for our courts, for our system of law and order and for the Constitution. The Buffalo News told its readers that Mr. Jacobs had joined the “Republican Sedition Caucus.” Mr. Jacobs does not represent the citizens, especially patriotic citizens, of Western New York nor the United States.
