Whose facts are we using?

To the editor:

At a meeting sponsored by the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce in late 2019, held in Houghton, I asked Rep. Jack Bergman if our elected officials should tell the truth to their constituents. Initially, he though the question was a joke, but after I assured him it was not, he said. “Yes, but it depends on the what facts you are using.”

If that is the case, then what facts set is he using to publicly recognize President-elect Joe Biden as our next president, and why did he sign on to a Texas lawsuit that sought to overturn the election results in states, including Michigan?

The facts that I am aware of include the following: Biden won the popular vote, Biden won the electoral vote, and the Trump-appointed, Republican head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said, “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
