Pennsylvania Republicans say Dominion Voting Systems withdrew from a House Government Oversight Committee hearing scheduled for Nov. 20.
The company was expected to testify and answer questions before the bipartisan committee.
But, according to State Rep. Seth Grove, the committee’s Republican chairman, the company went back on their agreement Thursday evening.
“Instead of running towards the light of honesty and integrity, Dominion voting systems retreated to the darkness,” said Grove. “Why? Why would a vendor of public goods fear discussing their products sold to the public for the public good? If Dominion’s products were successful and operate as they were supposed to, why wouldn’t Dominion take the opportunity to publicly review its success?”
Dominion did not reply to NTD’s requests for comment, nor did State Rep. Matthew Bradford, the committee’s Democratic chairman.
State House Rep. Dawn Keefer, a Republican, said 14 counties, one of which she represents, used Dominion systems in the 2020 presidential election.
“So, when Dominion said they would come and answer the question, this was an opportunity for them to demonstrate who they were, the services they were providing, the products they were selling us, and how they were being utilized, and give the voters the confidence they were looking for,” said Keefer.
Dominion has said the company is non-partisan and not biased toward Democrats, but confirmed it had made an estimated $2.5 million donation to the Clinton Global Initiative and had hired the former staffer of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as a lobbyist.
Pennsylvania counties are looking at a Nov. 23 deadline to certify their electoral votes.
