Texas is making huge moves to support a fair election.
Early this morning news broke that they have filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court, challenging the election rules in key battleground states including Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The lawsuit could have major implications for the 2020 presidential election and all future elections in the United States.
Breitbart reports that “Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures. Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above.”
Because the suit involves a dispute between two or more states, Texas filed with the highest court directly. This should make the process go faster than working through the lower courts, which tend to be filled with more activists judges, anyway.
It appears that they are asking the Supreme Court to invalidate existing certifications and allow the legislatures of each state in question to appoint their own electors.
The lawsuit reads:
Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting. The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect—they made the 2020 election less secure in the Defendant States. Those changes are inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution. … This case presents a question of law: Did the Defendant States violate the Electors Clause by taking non-legislative actions to change the election rules that would govern the appointment of presidential electors? These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution. By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution.
This news comes as a huge shock to the Democrat party and the fake news who have all but anointed Joe Biden as King of the United States.
