Texas and Many Other States Sues 4 States for ‘Skewing’ 2020 Election Results

The state of Texas on Tuesday filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, alleging officials in the four states are guilty of “skewing” the results of the 2020 presidential race by refusing to follow their own laws.

“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together, said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election.”

Paxton charged that the states “violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution.”

“By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections. Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error,” he said.

Texas contends the four states “exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”

“The battleground states flooded their people with unlawful ballot applications and ballots while ignoring statutory requirements as to how they were received, evaluated and counted.”

Texas argues that elections for federal office must comport with federal constitutional standards.

Do you agree with the Texas lawsuit against the four swing states?

“For presidential elections, each state must appoint its electors to the electoral college in a manner that complies with the Constitution. The Electors Clause requirement that only state legislatures may set the rules governing the appointment of electors and elections and cannot be delegated to local officials. The majority of the rushed decisions, made by local officials, were not approved by the state legislatures, thereby circumventing the Constitution.”

Texas argues that as a dispute between states, the case qualifies for direct action by the Supreme Court.

The filing asserts the 2020 election “suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the defendant states.”

For example, officials changed election laws that can be changed only by the state legislature. And voters were not treated equally.

Other “flaws” arose from “the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those states’ election laws,” the complaint states.

“All these flaws – even the violations of state election law – violate one or more of the federal requirements for elections (i.e., equal protection, due process, and the Electors Clause) and thus arise under federal law. See Bush v Gore, 531 U.S. 98, 113 (2000) (“significant departure from the legislative scheme for appointing Presidential electors presents a federal constitutional question”) (Rehnquist, C.J., concurring). Plaintiff State respectfully submits that the foregoing types of electoral irregularities exceed the hanging-chad saga of the 2000 election in their degree of departure from both state and federal law. Moreover, these flaws cumulatively preclude knowing who legitimately won the 2020 election and threaten to cloud all future elections. 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.

“Our Country stands at an important crossroads. Either the Constitution matters and must be followed, even when some officials consider it inconvenient or out of date, or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives. We ask the Court to choose the former. Lawful elections are at the heart of our constitutional democracy. The public, and indeed the candidates themselves, have a compelling interest in ensuring that the selection of a President — any President — is legitimate. If that trust is lost, the American Experiment will founder. A dark cloud hangs over the 2020 Presidential election. Here is what we know. 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. They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity. Finally, these same government officials flooded the Defendant States with millions of ballots to be sent through the mails, or placed in drop boxes, with little or no chain of custody, and, at the same time, weakened the strongest security measures protecting the integrity of the vote – signature verification and witness requirements.”

Evidence, the filing contends, is growing daily.

“This court is the only forum that can delay the deadline for the appointment of presidential electors … To safeguard public legitimacy at this unprecedented moment and restore public trust in the president election, this court should extend the December 14, 2020 deadline for Defendant States’ certification of presidential electors to allow these investigations to be completed.”

There was a “pattern” to the states’ actions.

“State officials, sometimes through pending litigation (e.g. settling ‘friendly’ suits) and sometimes unilaterally by executive fiat, announced new rules for the conduct of the 2020 election that were inconsistent with existing state statutes defining what constitutes a lawful vote.”

Votes cast illegally should be disregarded, the complaint argues.

Already, “dozens” of witnesses have testified under oath of Republican poll challengers being kicked out of vote counting, “thousands of the same ballots run multiple times through tabulators; mysterious late night dumps of thousands of ballots … illegally backdating thousands of ballots” and more.

The official outcome defies logic and statistics, Texas asserts.

“The probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four defendant states – Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion.

“Put simply, there is substantial reason to doubt the voting results in the defendant states.”

Like establishment media, the non-profit, independent Texas Tribune stated flatly there’s “no evidence of widespread voter fraud,” characterizing the case as futile.

“The last-minute bid, which legal experts have already characterized as a longshot, comes alongside dozens of similar attempts by President Donald Trump and his political allies. The majority of those lawsuits have already failed,” the Tribune said.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel called Paxton’s suit “a publicity stunt, not a serious legal pleading.”

Noting the Texas appeal on his Facebook page, evangelical leader Franklin Graham urged the nation to pray.

“Join me in praying that if there is fraud, it would be proven — for the good of our nation and all future elections,” he said. “Forces of evil are at work, and we know how much is at stake. Pray for God’s will to be done in the outcome of this important election. Please pray — the only hope for our country is God.”

      EVIDENTLY YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF HOW CROOKED BIDEN IS. CHANCES ARE HE WILL PARDON HIS TRAITORIOUS FAMILY AND SWEEP ALLEGATIONS OF PEDOPHILIA UNDER THE RUG WITHOUT AN INVESTIGATION. HAVE YOU GIVEN ANY CONSIDERATION TO HIS PLANS FOR TAXATION? HAVE YOU GIVEN ANY THOUGHT TO THE IMPACT ON THE US IF HE OPENS OUR BORDERS AND ALLOWS THOUSANDS MORE IMMIGRANTS IN TO LIVE OFF OUR WELFARE SYSTEM WHEN WE ALREEADY HAVE SO MANY HOMELESS? THATS JUST FOR STARTERS. TRUMP HAS DONE FAR MORE THAN YOU GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR. NO ONE SAYS YOU HAVE TO LIKE THE MAN BUT HE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB

    The Supreme court’s decision to reject this most important election case is appalling. It was cowardly and only proves the anti Trump deep state has infiltrated every nook and cranny in this great nation. Once Joe Biden is installed as President, the Chinese communist party takes over the U.S. without firing a single shot.

    If this isn’t resolved, then the ONLY recourse would be a CONVENTION of STATES to REIN IN this rogue Federal Government. And if THAT doesn’t work, then a FULL SCALE SUCCESSION from the Union is our ONLY recourse. Texas has it RIGHT. When there is OVIOUS full scale corruption of VOTER FRAUD preventing POTUS Trump from being the REELECTED and the SUPREME COUTS WON’T hear the cases, then there are obvious TREASONISTIC Traitors EVEN in the SUPREME courts. The TIME for CHANGE is NOW. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020.

    As an American, I am so ashamed of our Supreme Court…They are afraid to hear a case that is vital to the integrity of our national elections……No proof? No proof? What do you call the whistleblowers witness statements under oath, or how about the video of ballots being pulled from under tables after the watchers were sent home? What does the Supreme Court show about how they respect our Constitution.?
