Attorney General Ken Paxton announced a lawsuit filed against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — challenging their shady election practices.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced this week that the state of Texas has filed a lawsuit against four states the United States Supreme Court for ultimately “skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”
The lawsuit is against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin for apparently exploiting “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.”
Texas’ lawsuit questions whether or not the states violated the Electors Clause by taking non-legislative action to change the election rules.

“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,” Paxton said in a statement. “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.”
The lawsuit also stated that without the defendant states’ combined 72 electoral votes, President Trump presumably has 232 electoral votes, and Biden presumably has 234. So, the states’ electors will determine the outcome of the election.
After 2020 presented us with new election practices, and COVID-19 keeps the U.S. in a constant state of flux, investigations into election fraud are a necessary move. We must support these lawsuits that are looking to expose unlawful election practices. If so, we will have an outcome that is fair and truthful.
