GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw Says 2020 Election ‘Absolutely Not’ Stolen

Crenshaw criticized for saying Republicans should not “kid” themselves into believing that President Trump won the 2020 election.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Republican Senate candidate Bobby Piton interrupted Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) on Wednesday at a fundraiser in Cook County, Illinois, according to NBC News.
  • Rep. Crenshaw was telling a crowd of GOP voters that Democrats had not stolen the 2020 presidential election when Piton interjected.
  • Piton told to Crenshaw, “You’re wrong” and went on to say he had “plenty of proof” of voter fraud and that Arizona would soon “flip” back to President Trump.
  • “Don’t kid yourself into believing that’s why we lost. It’s not,” the Texas representative said.
  • Crenshaw is being labeled an “establishment Republican” by conservative media sources like National File for having “little to no respect for conservatives ideas.”
WHAT ELSE PITON SAID:
  • “It is disgusting to hear denials from a sitting do-nothing and intellectually dishonest Congressman in our House of Representatives, Crenshaw, who has done nothing but shill for the democrats and refuse to even see or hear the evidence of fraud,” Piton said in a Facebook post.
  • “Crenshaw is so sanctimonious and cocky and represents one of many intellectually dishonest Congressmen in our party who don’t care about freedom and truth,” he went on to write.
  • “Liberty loving patriots in Texas needs to jump in and primary Crenshaw!”
BACKGROUND:
  • Crenshaw went against most House Republicans when he voted to certify Joe Biden’s electoral votes on the night of the Jan. 6 unrest, even though he did sign onto Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit attempting to invalidate the election results in four swing states.
  • National File also notes how Rep. Crenshaw stood by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney when she called for Trump’s impeachment, and how the congressman suggested that Jesus Christ was a “fictional character.”
