Attorneys general from Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas are challenging Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballots.
Among them are attorneys general from Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas.
One of the most recent to join is Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. He said in a statement that Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruling “allowed absentee ballots to be counted without a legible postmark and overrode unambiguous state law passed by the Pennsylvania legislature.”

“Legal matters like the one involving Pennsylvania set a judicial precedent that not only affects this election, but future elections as well,” AG Cameron continued. “My interest in this is not about courts dictating who wins and loses, but about transparency and rule of law issues that should give all Americans the confidence that the election was conducted fairly.”
On Monday, U.S. Attorney General William Barr allowed federal prosecutors to pursue “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities during the election.

Republican leaders are rightfully holding states accountable in the aftermath of the election. With unprecedented voter turnout and complications due to COVID in 2020, these election-related lawsuits are valid and necessary.
As Senator Mitch McConnell recently said, “let’s have no lectures about how the President should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election.”
