This is old news, but it is only now getting media attention.

In December 2020, the defeated Republican Electoral College slates from six states submitted forms to the Senate and National Archives claiming that they had won, and had delivered their states Electoral College votes to Trump and Pence.  Each of these forms began:

WE THE UNDERSIGNED, being the duly elected and qualified Electors for President and Vice President of the United States of America from the state of…

They were not duly elected, of course.  In each case their state’s Secretary of State had determined that the other slate of electors had won.

I am not familiar with the group American Oversight.  They appear to have done the most work here, filing Freedom of Information requests and obtaining copies of the fraudulent filings.  Their coverage is here.

The Republican electors from Pennsylvania also sent in their votes, but described their report as provisional, depending on whether courts determined that Trump had won the state.  (Perhaps they consulted a lawyer before filing.)

These are the people who attempted this fraud:
