Who are we picking on for the last day of 2020? The smarmy Senator from Missouri, Josh Hawley.
The nakedly ambitious and craven junior senator wants to run for president, and so he's sucking up to the Trump base by announcing he'll challenge the validation of Joe Biden's vote on January 6th:
Millions of voters concerned about election integrity deserve to be heard. I will object on January 6 on their behalf pic.twitter.com/kTaaPPJGHE

But Hawley has no problem telling the over 80 MILLION AMERICANS who voted for Joe Biden that our voices do not count.
That because we did not choose his King that our votes do not count.
The arrogance of these bastards. https://t.co/nJoZq0OsUe

Georgia Lt. Gov. @GeoffDuncanGA condemns @HawleyMO's "damaging" plan to challenge election results: "I'm worried that the sideshows and the distractions are causing some disruption around Jan. 5. But long-term, gosh, it's just not helpful. And quite honestly, it is a sideshow." pic.twitter.com/Pnn6HZs0Bm

Don’t underestimate how selfish and craven his actions are. He is putting his colleagues in an untenable position, all in the cause of his ambition. Pretty ugly stuff.

More than 1.1 million Georgia voters have cast their ballots despite long lines and closed polling places. But we need federal action, like the permanent protections of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, to stop voter suppression like this. https://t.co/ygTiRwRjWy
