Saturday at its winter meeting, the 400 members of the Alabama Republican Party State Executive Committee overwhelmingly passed two resolutions commending Alabama Republican Congressman Mo Brooks for his efforts in Congress challenging the 2020 election results.

Brooks thanked the Alabama Republican Party for their support:

“It is gratifying to know that no matter how scurrilously and viciously Socialist Democrats, the Fake News Media, and the RINO Republican ‘Surrender Caucus’ attack my good name, so many knowledgeable and informed Alabamians stand with me in our fight to protect the foundational principles that have made America the greatest nation in world history. In particular, I thank the Alabama Republican Party for recognizing that voter fraud and election theft undermine our Republic and that we must restore honest and accurate elections at all costs. My response to the leadership of the Alabama Republican Party is simple. Thank you for having my back in this fight for America!”

The resolution entitled “Commending Congressman Mo Brooks” passed overwhelmingly on an 86 percent to 14 percent vote. The resolution expressing appreciation for Sen. Tommy Tuberville, Brooks, Congressman Jerry Carl, Congressman Robert Aderholt, Congressman Barry Moore, Congressman Gary Palmer and Congressman Mike Rogers also passed on an overwhelming voice vote.

“Congressman Mo Brooks has consistently espoused in Congress, and on behalf of the people of Alabama, those values embraced by our founding documents that promote patriotism, fiscal responsibility and Christian morality,” the resolution reads in part. “Mo Brooks is a national leader in the fight against the Socialist agenda of the Democrat Party and is recognized as a rare true statesman among an assemblage of politicians.”

“Congressman Mo Brooks, by extensive action on the House floor, and in his January 6, 2021, and subsequent speeches, boldly led the charge against suppression of First Amendment free speech rights, monopolization of media platforms leading toward outright censorship, and voter and election fraud,” the resolution reads. “The Alabama Republican Executive Committee commends Congressman Mo Brooks for his bold leadership and outstanding service to the people of the State of Alabama and the United States.”

Brooks said:

“Alabamians are smart enough to reject the Fake News, Socialist Democrat and Republican ‘Surrender Caucus’ false claims that give cover to those who weaken election safeguards, exploit weaknesses in voter ID, engage in fraud-prone mail in ballot schemes, and violate the U.S. Constitution requirement that only Congress and state legislatures have authority over the ‘times, places and manner’ of elections (Article 1, Section 4). Alabama citizens demand that elected officials stand against systemic flaws in America’s election system that allow voter fraud and election theft. I pledge to Alabama that, as long as I am an elected official, I will fight for honest and accurate elections.”

The Alabama Republican Committee has 469 members, and 361 of them were present for Saturday’s winter meeting. Brooks is in his sixth term representing Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District.
