To the Editor:
In response to the recent Letter to the Editor [published January 23] condemning the action of Congresswoman Malliotakis: Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis is to be admired and congratulated for voting against the certification of the Electoral College. Legal challenges of the results of the Electoral College have happened before. Objections were made by Democratic legislators the last three limes the presidency was won by a Republican. In fact, in 2005, Nancy Pelosi supported objections to certification stating that this was "democracy at work." At stake, as is now, was election integrity. A vast number of Americans believe that fraud, as well as unlawful modification of election laws, has occurred. Those who objected to certification were merely asking for a ten-day audit to investigate and were entitled to so ask. Congresswoman Malliotakis should be appreciated and commended for her rightful and courageous action which served to address the concerns of her constituency.
