Other States Join Texas’s Lawsuit Against Pa., Mich., Ga., and Wisc.

'Some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the US Constitution...'

At least two other states joined Texas’s lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in an effort to overturn the battleground states from electing Democrat candidate Joe Biden.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton unveiled the lawsuit on Tuesday, alleging that their executive and state court actions to change voting laws violated the Electors Clause of the US Constitution, causing injury to other states that had followed the constitutionally prescribed process.

“The Electoral College is a zero-sum game,” said the lawsuit. “If the Defendant States’ unconstitutionally appointed Electors vote for a presidential candidate opposed by the Plaintiff State’s presidential electors, that operates to defeat the Plaintiff State’s interests.”

The attorneys general of Alabama and Louisiana announced they would join the suit if the Supreme Court takes it up, and Missouri announced late Tuesday it would participate.

“The unconstitutional actions and fraudulent votes in other states not only affect the citizens of those states, they affect the citizens of all states—of the entire United States,” Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said in a statement.

In a separate statement, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry agreed.

“Some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the US Constitution. Furthermore, many Louisianans have become more frustrated as some in media and the political class try to sidestep legitimate issues for the sake of expediency,” he said.
