That’s right ladies and gentlemen…, and, “Don’t mess with Texas!”
Evie Fordham of Fox News reports that, “Texas sues 4 key states at Supreme Court claiming unconstitutional voting changes.”
Alright now…, here we go!
“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued battleground states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin on Tuesday to challenge their 2020 presidential election results.”
‘“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, ‘Defendant States’), usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes,’ Paxton’s complaint says. ‘They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.’”
There is no doubt that everything Mr. Paxton just said there is true.
“Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to ‘declare that any electoral college votes cast by such presidential electors appointed in Defendant States Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin are in violation of the Electors Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and cannot be counted.’”
You tell ’em Mr. Texas Attorney General!
“Disputes between states are among the few cases of original jurisdiction for the Supreme Court, meaning lower courts cannot first hear the cases.”
The fact that this suit goes straight to the Supreme Court is huge!
“The four states are among a handful where the Trump campaign is trying to overturn results that handed President-elect Joe Biden the victory. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin have certified their results, but the Trump campaign is continuing to exhaust its legal options, including through a lawsuit filed last week in Wisconsin.”
Like they say, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”
“The election ‘suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the Defendant States,’ the filing says, citing the ‘appearance of voting irregularities in the Defendant States that would be consistent with the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those States’ election laws.’”
What he said.
All we can do is keep our fingers crossed on this one, but at least we should find out pretty quickly what the Supreme Court has to say about this.
I’ll keep you posted.
