Alabama lawmakers and elected officials who publicly supported Rep. Mo Brooks’s effort to overturn the election results. The effort, in part, led to a rally in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021, which ended with a storming of the U.S. Capitol and an attempted insurrection.
President Donald Trump was not alone in his attempts to undermine a free and fair election over the last several weeks, as a number of Republicans at both the federal and state levels knowingly aided the president. The most obvious ways in which these officials supported the president were through challenges to the Electoral College votes of some states and by way of lawsuits filed by these same lawmakers.
Alabama lawmakers supported both, with numerous elected officials voicing public support of these actions and the state’s attorney general officially making Alabama a party to one of the election challenge lawsuits. What follows is a listing of elected Alabama officials who played a role in these decisions or who voiced public support for them.
