Whether or not you like the result, the process worked as it always has. What's not working is that far too many politicians in Washington seem to have forgotten the basic principle that they are beholden to the people, not the other way around. — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican

Maryland's GOP governor criticized Republicans attempting to subvert the election results as a 'mockery of our system and who we are as Americans'
  • In a statement released Sunday, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, criticized members of Congress planning to reject the certification of the Electoral College vote on Wednesday.
  • Despite Biden's winning the race in November, and the Electoral College affirming such in December, some Republicans in the new year have continued to refuse to accept the results of the election, harping on baseless claims of voter fraud.
  • About a dozen Republican senators, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, said Saturday they planned to reject the certification if lawmakers don't agree to a 10-day audit of the baseless allegations.
  • Around 140 House Republicans also reportedly plan to reject the counting of the Electoral College votes.
"The scheme by members of Congress to reject the certification of the presidential election makes a mockery of our system and who we are as Americans," Hogan said in the Sunday afternoon statement.

... "President Trump and his team have had every opportunity to provide evidence supporting their claims, and they have failed to do so," Hogan, whose state voted for Biden, said. "Their allegations have been flatly rejected by Trump-appointed judges and a Trump-appointed Justice Department alike.

... "Whether or not you like the result, the process worked as it always has," he said Sunday. "What's not working is that far too many politicians in Washington seem to have forgotten the basic principle that they are beholden to the people, not the other way around."
