The state of Texas sued Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and
Wisconsin on Monday night with the US Supreme Court challenging
their unlawful election procedures. Texas argues these lawless
states violated the US Constitution by because they made changes to
voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive
actions, but not through the state legislatures as spelled out in
the US Constitution.
As set forth in the accompanying brief andcomplaint, the 2020
election suffered from significantand unconstitutional
irregularities in the DefendantStates:
• Non-legislative actors’ purported amendments to States’
duly enacted election laws , in violation of the Electors
Clause’s vesting State legislatures with plenary authority
regarding theappointment of presidential electors
• Intrastate differences in the treatment of voters,with more
favorable allotted to voters – whetherlawful or unlawful – in
areas administered bylocal government under Democrat control
andwith populations with higher ratios of Democratvoters than other
areas of Defendant States.
• The appearance of voting irregularities in theDefendant
States that would be consistent withthe unconstitutional relaxation
of ballot-integrity protections in those States’ election
The State of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S.
Supreme Court shortly before midnight on Monday challenging the
election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and
Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution.
Texas argues that these 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. Additionally, Texas argues that
there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different
counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal
Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting
irregularities” in these states as a result of the above.
Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow
their legislatures to appoint their electors.
