GOP Sen. Josh Hawley (MO) announced Wednesday that he will formally object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory when a joint session of Congress convenes to make Biden the 46th president on January 6.

In a statement he released, Hawley wrote:

“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws.”

Hawley can object as loudly and vociferously as he pleases, but it won’t change a damn thing. Joe Biden will still be the next president.

The only way Hawley’s attempt to steal the election from Biden could even proceed during the joint session would be if Democrats agree to join the objection and call into question the legitimacy of the 2020 election. That won’t happen for one very simple reason: There was no fraud or other problems with the balloting, which even Chris Krebs, the former election election security chief, remarking:

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.”

Hawley was pilloried on social media for his publicity stunt:
