Texas Files Supreme Court Lawsuit - Claims 4 States Violated Election Rules

(RightIsRight.co) – This year’s election brought a variety of questions about how an election can and should be run. In some states, last-minute rules were put in place by officials that some believe are unconstitutional. To fight these changes, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit against four states to try and restore integrity and security to their election process.

On Tuesday, December 8, the State of Texas filed a lawsuit with the US Supreme Court against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shared the motion:

In a press release, Paxton claimed the states “exploited the COVID-19 pandemic” by “unlawfully enacting last-minute changes” to ballot application and counting processes. Paxton claims election officials circumvented the Constitutional rule that only state legislatures can set the election rules.

Texas is requesting the Supreme Court to delay the electoral college vote deadline of December 14 and exclude the votes of the four states in question from being counted. While this lawsuit could bring about different results in the presidential election, that enormous decision is now in the hands of our Supreme Court.
