In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Texas files lawsuit with Supreme Court against Pa., Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin

According to the Washington Examiner:

“The state of Texas has filed a lawsuit directly with the Supreme Court against a handful of battleground states that went to President-elect Joe Biden in the presidential election.

“The suit, which was filed late Monday night by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, lists the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin as defendants. The complaint alleges that the four states — all of which went for Biden — made unconstitutional changes to how their state votes. Texas is seeking for the Supreme Court to rule that the states can send electors to vote for Trump despite how the vote turned out.

“‘Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election. 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,’ Paxton said in a statement. ‘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.'”

  1. While I was adjusting my tin-foil hat this morning, I was thinking how odd that the Chinese Cootie virus was set loose in a Presidential year and the Dems were so happy to embrace it. Odd, odd, indeed.
    Now we have chaos in Dem controlled states – another odd happening . Ballots are found, lost, ruined, re-found, funny looking, and no one seems to know how it all happened. Odd.

  2. Good for Texas!! I don’t believe for a second that this election was not illegally manipulated by the left, whose mantra is always “the end justifies the means”. If someone in my state orchestrated votes for 500 ex-residents (moved away or deceased), my vote counted less, and I was victimized. Same at the electoral college level, if one state creates a compromised electoral college, all states are victimized.

    Even if we are never able to prove the crimes, and we have to endure the ensuing “Robin Hood” fairytale government for four years, at the very least I hope states see the chaos that lack of voter ID caused. But I won’t hold my breath.

  3. Congrats to Texas for finding a defined path to get the SCOTUS involved in this debacle. Ten gallon hat tip. Time is all but out, but this could matter.
    Texas essentially took various regional state issues and turned them inside out to show the prejudicial outcome that 4 states had on a national election.
    That’s called arbitrary and capricious, as defined in the 1946 Administrative Procedure Act ( yeah I looked it up)


  4. Suppose the Supreme Court enjoins these states from selecting electors at all as the unconstitutional acts make a “popular vote” winner impossible to determine. The Constitution allows the state legislatures to choose electors in any manner, but the state constitutions/statutes may require the election process. This reduces the total number of electors by 62 and Biden’s total to 244. President Trump officially only has 232. So this alone can’t change the election result — but, it could surely help restore integrity to the process by sending a strong message that the rule of law matters!

    1. But if no one gets to 270, it goes to the House, where each state gets one vote. The GOP controls that scenario, 26-24. So if Biden drops under 270, regardless of Trump’s total, it’s four more years.

      Another possibility would be for Congress itself to challenge the electoral votes when they’re received. Congress is under no obligation to accept disputed votes. It’s arcane, but it’s certainly doable, and given the circumstances, it may happen.

      It would be an extraordinary remedy, but this is an extraordinary malady.

  5. 1788 New York could not certify electors in time, no vote. 1876 disputed slates from 3 states did not go to the House. 1824 the popular & electoral vote winner was not selected by the House. A majority of qualified electoral votes is the metric, not 270.
