Chances Increase for SCOTUS to Pick up Texas Case, MI and PA Legislators Ask to Join Case against MI and PA

A group of state legislators and voters asked the Supreme Court on Thursday for permission to join Texas’s lawsuit challenging 2020 election results in four states. What is most surprising is that these Americans are from two of the states, Michigan and Pennsylvania, being sued by Texas.

The Epoch Times reported:

“Among the members listed in the request (pdf) are those who had previously filed lawsuits seeking to de-certify election results either in state or federal courts. These include several voters and Pennsylvania state legislators Daryl D. Metcalfe, Chris E. Dush, and Thomas R. Sankey III, whose lawsuit was dismissed by a state judge.

Meanwhile, a group of Michigan state legislators has also signed on to the brief asking to intervene in the case.”

The court has not indicated whether it would take up the case, even though the justices have original jurisdiction over the dispute. This means that the court has the power to hear the case for the first time as opposed to reviewing a lower court’s decision.

“The Supreme Court has a chance to save our Country from the greatest Election abuse in the history of the United States,” Trump wrote in a Twitter statement on Thursday.

I covered the Lawsuit:

The legislators and voters are not the only people attempting to join the case. Trump and six states with Republican attorney generals—Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah—have also asked the top court to allow them to join Texas in the case.

Michigan was the scene of shocking testimony of alleged fraud when an attorney for President Donald J Trump, Rudy Giuliani, presented eyewitness expert testimony.  One of his witnesses, Jessy Jacob, said:” I directly observed, city of Detroit election workers & employees coaching & trying to coach voters, to vote for Joe Biden & the Dem. Party, Jacob’s affidavit says. I witnessed (them)encouraging voters to do a straight Dem. ballot.”

The Trump campaign delivered a message to many states, directed at the State Legislators to reclaim their authority to appoint electors and determine election laws and rules. In the article below is their foundation for those claims.

“Shortly before 3pm today, 15 Michigan Legislators have joined the Texas lawsuit against states including Michigan that didn’t follow election laws. We have a responsibility to investigate credible accusations of voter fraud. Your Michigan legislature cannot sit by,” one court watcher wrote in reaction to the story of Michigan joining in on the lawsuit against Michigan. 

The state of Texas had asked the Supreme Court on Dec. 7 for permission to sue Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin in an attempt to protect the integrity of the 2020 election.

The Lone Star State has accused the four states of changing election rules in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Electors Clause, unequal treatment of voters, and causing voting irregularities by relaxing ballot-integrity protections under state law, opening up the potential for voting fraud.

It reminds me of a story from before the election in North Carolina where a Federal Judge ruled against the Governor and Attorney General for their same pre-election scheme:

“Taken together, these flaws affect an outcome-determinative number of popular votes in a group of States that cast outcome-determinative numbers of electoral votes,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argued in his brief (pdf).

With MI and PA legislators joining a lawsuit against their own state, the chances of the US Supreme Court taking the Texas Case just increased.
