Bert Parks Just Opened The Envelopes & Announced Winner. Just Like Vice-President On Jan 6?

Above Image: From 1955 to 1979, Bert Parks hosted the Miss America Pageant every September in Atlantic City, NJ. After various competitions, a panel of judges chose the winners, and placed the results in a sealed envelopes.  The only job of Bert Parks was to open that envelope and announce the results to the public. Bert Parks did not have any right to challenge or reject the votes of any of the judges.  On January 6, 2021, was it the job of Republican Vice President Mike Pence to do anything other than open the 50 sealed envelopes submitted by the Electors in each of the fifty state capitals one month before?  Or did the Constitution give him the power to do anything to change the outcome or extend his own term in office?  On January 6, 2017, did Democratic Vice-President Joe Biden have the right to do anything other than open the 50 sealed envelopes of the Electors giving him a majority vote to defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton?  Did anyone in Congress have the right to do anything to change the certified votes of the Electors once they had certified that their votes submitted in those sealed envelopes were accurate?

Was Trump wrong to urge his supporters to go to the Capitol to “persuade” Vice President Pence to reject or challenge the certified results contained in any of those envelopes?

Are Democrats and the Special Prosecutor wrong to claim Trump tried to prevent the “peaceful transition of power” by urging Vice President to reject or challenge the certified results contained in any of those envelopes.

If the Constitution required Vice President Pence to simply open envelopes and read the results, would his failure to do so in any way stopped or delayed the inauguration of the candidate with the most Electoral Votes on January 20?

Read the Twelfth Amendment of the United State Constitution and let us know your opinion.  Our Constitution was designed to be read and understood by any American with an eighth grade education.  You don’t need to be a lawyer or constitutional law expert to understand and apply our Constitution.  You only need to be a lawyer or constitutional law expert to look for loopholes and technicalities to ignore it!

The method to elect the President was originally contained in Article II, Section 1.  It provided for the candidate getting a majority of the votes to be the President, and the candidate getting the second highest number of votes to be the Vice-President.  That was changed in 1804 after Aaron Burr, a candidate for Vice-President tried to betray his running mate, Thomas Jefferson to become President.

After that, that provision of Article II, Section 1 was repealed.  It was replaced with the Twelfth Amendment.  The Twelfth Amended provided for separate elections of President and Vice-President.  Here is the text of the Twelfth Amendment:

“The Electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and all persons voted for as Vice-President and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;

The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;

The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed;

and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.[a]
The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.[1]

  1. After a little search on the web, and understanding there were about, or over, 100 challenges by congressional members about the vote count in various States; it seems it would have been appropriate to send members back to discuss the issue. So it was not from reading the 12th Amendment alone, but apparent historical precedent.

    Here is what I found online;

    The results from each state, read in alphabetical order, were ticked through quickly until Ohio was called, and a clerk read the letter of objection from Boxer and Tubbs Jones.
    Vice President Dick Cheney then ordered the lawmakers back to their respective chambers for two hours of debate on the merits of the challenge.
    It was only the second such challenge since the current rules for counting electoral votes were established in 1887.
