GOP Sen. Rob Portman says Biden transition funds should be released

Source: Axios

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) wrote in an op-ed for The Cincinnati Enquirer that while he supports legal checks on the 2020 presidential election, the General Services Administration should provide the funds and infrastructure for a Biden transition to begin.

Why it matters: Portman was a co-chair of Trump's re-election campaign in Ohio and rarely steps out of line with party leadership. He wrote in the op-ed that "there is no evidence as of now of any widespread fraud or irregularities that would change the result in any state."

What he's saying: "Based on all the information currently available, neither the final lawful vote counts nor the recounts have led to a different outcome in any state. In other words, the initial determination showing Joe Biden with enough electoral votes to win has not changed," Portman wrote.

"I voted for President Trump ... But I also believe that there is no more sacred constitutional process in our great democracy than the orderly transfer of power after a presidential election. It is now time to expeditiously resolve any outstanding questions and move forward."

1. Sure, Senator, write all the op-eds you want.

But you, I, and everyone else knows that the op-ed doesn't mean shit unless you get up on the floor and fucking push for what you're saying needs to be done. Covering your ass doesn't cut it any more, Senator!

Either shit or get off the pot, Senator.
