TN Attorney General, 17 State Attorneys General File Amicus Brief in State of Texas Supreme Court Election Case
Dec 11, 2020
On Wednesday, Tennessee’s Attorney General announced that his office joined 16 other state’s attorney generals in signing onto the friend-of-the-court brief prepared by Missouri in support of the Texas Attorney General’s election lawsuit filed in the United States Supreme Court.
17 States Agree The Supreme Court Should Overturn Biden’s Win
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the lawsuit against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Wisconsin, alleging that the states’ election results should be invalidated because of violations of the U.S. Constitution that occurred when government officials and agencies other than state legislatures expanded state voting law amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” said Paxton. “Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.”
Trump filed a motion to intervene in the case Wednesday, which asks the Supreme Court to let the president join the case and declare that Biden’s electoral votes in the four battleground states “are in violation of the Electors Clause and cannot be counted.”
