WOW, This is HUGE news everybody
As the Texas SCOTUS case continues to gain steam, more and more representatives and individual states are jumping into the fray.
106 House Republicans have now voiced support for the lawsuit headed by The Lonestar State, and I am SURE more are on their way.
Here is what we could find as the story develops:
The Daily Wire reported:
Over 100 GOP members of the House jointly filed a brief supporting Texas’ lawsuit against four battleground states seeking to block them from voting in the Electoral College for alleged “unconstitutional irregularities.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit on Tuesday challenging the election results of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, alleging that they had violated their election laws and arguing that their results should be voided. House Republicans filed an amicus brief supporting Texas’ case.
“This brief presents [our] concern as Members of Congress, shared by untold millions of their constituents, that the unconstitutional irregularities involved in the 2020 presidential election cast doubt upon its outcome and the integrity of the American system of elections,” the House Republicans’ brief says, according to The Hill reporter John Kruzel.
NTD News reported on the 22 blue states in opposition to the lawsuit:
The District of Columbia filed a legal brief on behalf of 22 blue states on Dec. 10 opposing a lawsuit request filed with the Supreme Court by the State of Texas, which challenges the election results in four battleground states.
The group represents all of the states with Democratic attorneys general not counting the four defendants: Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
“The people have chosen. But Texas, supported by 17 other states, asks this Court to overturn that choice,” the brief (pdf), signed by District of Columbia Solicitor General Loren Alikhan, states. “Amici States urge this Court to reject Texas’s last-minute attempt to throw out the results of an election decided by the people and securely overseen and certified by its sister states.”
