The Lone Star state has decided it is unwilling to be ruled by an illegitimate election result predicated on illegal mail in ballots.
Texas famously refused to allow the controversial Dominion Voting machines to be used in their State. Now the most powerful state in the Union is flexing its muscles with regard to illegal mail in ballots.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, today saying “they made unconstitutional changes to their laws before the 2020 election.”
Paxton said those states “tainted the integrity of the vote in Texas and all states.”
Here is the full statement from the Office of the Attorney General of Texas on the matter:
“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the United States Supreme Court. 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.
Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together. 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. 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.
Elections for federal office must comport with federal constitutional standards. 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.”
