The Attorney General of Texas, Ken Paxton, has filed a lawsuit in the US Supreme Court against the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia for disenfranchising the voters of Texas.
Texas’ suit argues: “failing to follow the state statutory requirements for signature validation and other processes for ballot security, the entire body of such ballots is now constitutionally suspect and may not be legitimately used to determine the allocation of the Defendant States’ presidential electors.”
Paxton explained that Texas’ lawsuit does not directly address fraud. The suit addresses the unconstitutional non-legislative alteration of state election laws in the four states. “Our argument is not directly against the fraud. Let’s transfer this to the legislatures because the Secretary’s of States in those four states unconstitutionally changed election law.”
The suit argues that the illegal changes in the named states affect the states involve and the rest of the states in the nation.
“Taken together, these flaws affect an outcome-determinative numbers of popular votes in a group of States that cast outcome-determinative numbers of electoral votes. This Court should grant leave to file the complaint and, ultimately, enjoin the use of unlawful election results without review and ratification by the Defendant States’ legislatures and remand to the Defendant States’ respective legislatures to appoint Presidential Electors in a manner consistent with the Electors Clause and pursuant to 3 U.S.C. § 2.
President Trump tweeted that his legal team is “intervening” in the case:
It is very strong, ALL CRITERIA MET. We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!
The Epoch Times explained the “intervention”: “An intervention, in legal terms, is a procedure that lets a nonparty join ongoing litigation if the case affects the rights of that party. The court considering an application to intervene, in this case, the U.S. Supreme Court has the discretion to allow or deny such a request.”
