Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

Congress certifies Joe Biden's victory

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-55568621

The US Congress has certified Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election. The certification clears the way for Mr Biden to be sworn in on 20 January.

It came on the day two Democrats won Senate seats in elections in Georgia, giving the party effective control of the whole of Congress. This major political victory will ease the passage of Mr Biden's agenda after he is inaugurated.

Democrat Joe Biden's victory was confirmed at about 03:30 local time (08:30 GMT) on Thursday in a joint session presided over by Republican Vice-President Mike Pence.

Objections by some Republican lawmakers to overturn the result in Arizona and Pennsylvania were rejected. Congress formally certified the final electoral college vote, with Mr Biden receiving 306 votes to Mr Trump's 232.

For days Mr Trump had been piling pressure on his vice-president to block certification. But in a letter to Congress on Wednesday, Mr Pence said he had no "unilateral authority to decide which electoral votes should be counted".
Good for Congress .....

Why does anyone even want a job where thousands of people hate you and are after your blood from day 1?
