Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) earned a bad mark for violating democracy for telling Trump’s big lie about the elections.
The Republican Accountability Project declared Jordan’s poor grade:
Rep. Jim Jordan represents Ohio’s 4th District in the House. He began spreading lies about the election in a rant in Fox News on November 14, 2020: “Why did it seem like the president on election night lost all of the major swing states that had a long pause in the count? ? ”
He later claimed that “Democrats knew Trump was going to win on election night, but they wanted to keep looking for ballot papers and counting them until they were exaggerated.” After discussing the formidable performance of Downballot Republicans in another interview with Fox News, he joked, “Somehow President Trump lost to a man who was going to hold an event … but only five people would show up! It doesn’t make sense. ”He then declined to count the votes of the Arizona and Pennsylvania electoral college on Jan. 6.
On January 12th, he still refused to admit that Biden had won a free and fair election.
Jeff Sites, a Democrat challenging Jordan in 2022, responded by saying, “Nobody has done more to help Trump in the election than Jim Jordan. His lies caused the riot and cost lives, and he still won’t stop spreading them. He helped Trump get through and now he’s actively campaigning for voter suppression. This moment is a great test for our leaders, and it is amazingly obvious that it failed. I am an army veteran and I have always wanted to serve this nation. I made up my mind to run for Congress again after January 6th because serving right now means stopping those who don’t put the country above the party. We cannot quietly watch as career politicians tear down our republic and tear up our ballot papers to serve their own interests. “
Jim Jordan is an enemy of American democracy who is more interested in raising his own profile, which he has firmly tied to Trump, than doing what is right for his constituents in Ohio District and his country.
Jordan was shut down and shut down by the democratic majority in the house.
Jim Jordan is a threat to democracy and does not belong to any political office.
