This month, one county Republican Party became the first in Oklahoma to formally denounce the results of the 2020 election.
Residents across the state who have complained for months, writing letters, calling their government representatives, canvassing voters, and calling for reforms to the elections system, have thus far been met with little response from any public body. Now, the Republican Party of Craig County has issued a resolution rejecting the election results:
The measure passed unanimously on Aug 8, 2022. It was announced on the party’s Facebook page over the weekend. In it, they call out the unconstitutional changes made in states like Pennsylvania, which were not chartered by the legislature, and significantly impacted the outcome of the election. This opened the door to massive amounts of fraud.
BE IT RESOLVED, The Craig County Republican Party of Oklahoma, believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution, that various Secretaries of State illegally circumvented their state legislatures in conducting their elections in multiple ways, including but not limited to allowing “mail-in” ballots to be received after November 3, 2020, allowing election “drop boxes”, and ballot harvesting. We believe that substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas significantly affected the results of five or more keys states in favor of former Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. States that certify their Electors based on Fraudulent and/or incomplete results MUST withdraw and decertify their Electors. If those states do not decertify, there [sic] inability to govern their own elections not only compromises their elections but directly puts the entire Republic at risk.
Note the items we highlighted in bold. The Constitution clearly describes that state legislatures are in charge of choosing the manner in which elections are conducted. Secretaries of state and election boards in 2020 changed election procedures contrary to state law, often when they couldn’t get the legislatures to enact some of the changes.
The resolution is signed by 7 members of party leadership, including the chair and vice-chair, precinct chairs, the treasurer, and the District Committeeman. They also join the growing chorus of state and local Republican leaders who are calling for decertification of the last presidential election results.
OKLIG applauds this declaration of truth from the Craig County Republicans, and urges more county parties to add their support. We are happy to offer our perspective to any group, regardless of party affiliation, that is concerned about voter integrity.
In fact, we have learned that Kay County passed a similar resolution, posted on our Telegram channel. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a wave of interest in securing our elections.
