Virginia state senator and Republican candidate for governor, Amanda Chase threw her support behind Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election and agrees with Michael Flynn calling on Trump to declare martial law and have the military oversee the new election.
“Not my President and never will be. The American people aren’t fools. We know you cheated to win and we’ll never accept these results. Fair elections we can accept but cheating to win; never,” Chase wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. “It’s not over yet. So thankful President Trump has a backbone and refuses to concede. President Trump should declare martial law as recommended by General Flynn.”
“Here in Virginia the Democrats legalized cheating at the ballot box to win- all under the guise of covid,” she continued. “The Virginia Democrat Majority repealed voter ID laws, eliminated witness signatures and allowed voters to drop off sacred ballots in unsecured ballot boxes across the state, destroying the integrity and chain of custody of our ballots. In many other states this would be illegal.”
Going forward she says she’ll be working with Sidney ‘Kraken’ Powell “to expose what I and others believe is extensive fraud here in Virginia.”
“We cannot allow them to get away with this … January 6 will be a big day,” Chase wrote. “Keep praying and keep the faith.”
January 6 is when the official tally of the electoral votes will take place in a joint session of Congress with outgoing Vice President Mike Pence presiding. Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks says he will challenge the results but its not likely to go anywhere.
The U.S. has never declared martial law, which gives the military broad powers in a time of crisis, at the federal level. But it has been used on some instances at state and local levels during disasters or times of unrest, such as in Hawaii following the attack on Pearl Harbor, according to The Hill.
