We reported earlier today that Texas has filed a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin for 14th amendment equal protection violations. Since then, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case. Many in Fake News are pouncing on the fact that the High Court threw out the Pennsylvania lawsuit, but they don’t tell you that the Court did not hear that case, because the Texas suit includes Pennsylvania.

The Louisiana Attorney General has written a statement late Tuesday afternoon supporting Texas in their lawsuit for Equal Protection violations.  They have supported the lawsuit, because they too argue that Democrats in their state violated the Equal Protection Clause, or Article II, Section 3 which states:

“Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors” [Emphasis added]

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry gave the following statement concerning the arguments over the 2020 federal election and the new motion put forward by the State of Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Millions of Louisiana citizens, and tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country, have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections. Deeply rooted in these concerns is the fact that some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the U.S. 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.”

It was reported on Newsmax’s “Stinchfield” that Louisiana, Florida and six other states have joined Texas in the lawsuit. Those other states are Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

The Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall took to social media to share a statement on the Texas lawsuit.

“Here is my statement on the State of Texas’s motion filed with #SCOTUS and the State of Alabama’s commitment to the fight to ensure #electionintegrity:”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the case very late Monday claiming those states violated the US Constitution in the way they ran the presidential election.

“Our country stands at an important crossroads. Either the Constitution matters and must be followed…or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives,” the case begins.

“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together. Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election,” Paxton said in a statement about the filing of the lawsuit.

There are rumors that other states are going to join as well.  I’m hearing Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, and South Dakota.  Some are even mentioning Florida where Donald Trump won big, but if the Democrats violated the Constitution there as well, then they should join.  This issue isn’t just about President Trump having the 2020 election stolen from him.  It’s also about our rule of law and the American people having faith in our elections.

The Texas case has two allegations against the four states.  The first charge Texas makes is a violation of Constitution’s Electors Clause.

Article II, Section 3 says:

“Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors” [Emphasis added]

When the Pennsylvania Supreme Court gave a ruling that changed PA election law by extending the deadline for accepting mail-in ballots by three days, they did not go through the legislature which violates Article I, Section 4 which states:

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof;”

When the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger entered into a consent decree with the Democratic Party of Georgia, via negotiations with failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams that modified state law on signature verification requirements.  When he did that, Raffensperger violated the Electors Clause.

The second charge made by Texas was a violation of 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.  This is a slam dunk argument because all four states changed the law when they changed the way the state would receive and treat ballots.  All four states treated ballots in one county one way and another way in another county.  That’s not according to the law.  There was no equal protection of voters’ ballots.  In the 2000 landmark case Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court ruled that Florida violated the 14th Amendments’ Equal Protection Clause and Bush became the winner.

The Equal Protection Clause should be a win, because there is a large amount of witness testimony showing the different ways ballots were treated.

We’ll have to see how the Supreme Court handles the Texas case.  They’ve already accepted it.  If the High Court gets to hear arguments of how all four states treated mail-in ballots differently in different counties, not to mention how they treated in-person signature verifications vs mail-in ballots, it should be an easy decision.
