Texas Challenges Presidential Election Results in U.S. Supreme Court

ALG Urges State Attorneys General to Join Legal Challenge

Fairfax, Va. – The State of Texas has filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds they violate the Constitution. Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors.

The Texas lawsuit makes these three arguments:

  • the states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures;
  • there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause;
  • there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above actions.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning is urging state attorneys general to join the lawsuit or file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the challenge.

“There is clear and compelling evidence the states targeted in this lawsuit violated the Constitution,” said Manning. “These states used the Covid pandemic to justify ignoring state absentee and mail-in voting laws. In flooding their states with millions of absentee ballot applications and ballots, statutory controls went out the window.

“For the sake of not only this election, but all future elections, I urge state attorneys general to support this lawsuit. If Americans don’t trust the result of this election, how can they trust the result of any future elections? Our republic is at stake.”

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states.
