  • The Texas GOP voted "overwhelmingly" to reject the validity of Joe Biden's 2020 election victory.
  • Texas Republicans said at the state's GOP convention that they "reject the certified results."
  • Claims about the illegitimacy of the 2020 election have been repeatedly rebuked.

The Texas Republican Party voted over the weekend to pass a resolution saying President Joe Biden's 2020 election victory was illegitimate and called on fellow Republicans "to ensure election integrity" during the midterm races in November.

"We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election," a statement released on Monday by the Texas GOP said, calling Biden an "acting President" who was "not legitimately elected by the people of the United States."

The statement said nearly 5,000 Texas GOP delegates "overwhelmingly passed" the resolution seeking to stir up doubt about the validity of the election outcome.

"We 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 by allowing ballots to be received after November 3, 2020," the party said in its statement, which outlined positions that it adopted at its convention in Houston.

The statement baselessly claimed that "substantial election fraud" in key metropolitan areas skewed results in multiple states to hand Biden a victory over President Donald Trump.

Ahead of the midterm elections, the GOP officials encouraged voters to "bring your friends and family, volunteer for your local Republicans, and overwhelm any possible fraud."

"Texas Republicans rightly have no faith in the 2020 election results and we don't care how many times the elites tell us we have to," Matt Rinaldi, the chair of the Texas Republican Party, also said in the statement.

Unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud and conspiracy theories about the legitimacy of Biden's victory have haunted the legacy of the 2020 election in the year and a half since Trump was defeated.

The claims fueled dozens of lawsuits across the country, which were driven by Republicans in the months after Biden's victory, arguing over claims that ballots were counted improperly and attempting to stop the certification of election results. All the suits ultimately failed.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill looking into the January 6, 2021, insurrection have presided over a series of recent hearings that have largely debunked voter-fraud conspiracies.

During the hearings, senior Republicans have spoken of their unease with the hostilities that led up to the incident, while others have openly recounted accepting the notion that attempted legal avenues to overturn the election results were baseless.

The Texas GOP adopted other views as part of its platform at its convention this weekend, including anti-LGBTQ ideology that calls being gay an "abnormal lifestyle choice." As part of its embrace of the new platform, the party also opposed criminal and civil penalties for those who are against homosexuality based on "faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."

Rubbernecking is dangerous JBB.   Just keep your eyes on the road, you can't be distracted by something you're not looking at.

I do like horseback riding.  Living in the Bronx, does your inside often get the benefit of the outside of a horse?

Your use of the retro phone is cool.

Well it is embarrassing to see the way the GOP treated Corwyn, Cruz and Crenshaw

over not doing enough or daring to challenge the status quo on current gun laws.

Not to be outdone on guns, they passed a resolution rejecting the current POTUS

as illegitimate and paved the way to legally put proposals on state wide ballots to, once again,

secede from the USA based on the old theory that Texas was once a sovereign republic

and somehow still had that right in spite of the SCOTUS rulings against such ideas.

The new platform moves further to the right on homosexuality issues (if that's possible).

They are also calling for repeal of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Texas was once considered pretty progressive...

No, was that when FDR campaigned there and unveiled a Robert E Lee statue?

It was not that long ago Lloyd Benson was a Senator and Ann Richards was governor...

I forgot about Ann, good call.  While not agreeing with many of her positions, I respected and liked her.

It's been 28 years since a Democrat won a state office in Texas.

That is the longest such drought for any state in American history.

The statement baselessly claimed that "substantial election fraud" in key metropolitan areas skewed results in multiple states to hand Biden a victory over President Donald Trump.

But, mind you . . . ONLY for the presidential election. Even though lots of other races were on people’s ballots - Senate races, House races, state offices, mayoral races, school boards, initiatives and propositions - ONLY the outcome of the race for president was changed. 

That is some finely tuned and focused voter fraud right there.

A MAZE ing!

I hope they're working with Mike Lindell on this. He has iron clad proof of fraud, and promises to release his findings within the next decade.

The headline should read "Texas GOP Votes To Reject Reality".
