The state of Texas, sued the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in the Supreme Court for changing electoral rules by ignoring the established legislative process.

As a result, Texas is requesting that the Supreme Court empower legislators to appoint delegates to the Electoral College, according to Breitbart of Dec. 7. 

The respondent states used the courts and executive actions to change the rules and procedures for voting, in violation of the Voters Clause of the Constitution.

These four states have also been sued by President Trump’s campaign lawyers for voter fraud, sparking controversy by certifying their votes for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. 

“The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted,” Texas stated. 

“Those changes are inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution,” the lawsuit states.

Among the changes, some counties altered the way they would receive, evaluate or treat ballots, while others handled the address on the ballot envelopes differently, resulting in unequal treatment of different areas of the state.

As a result of these changes, “the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution,” Texas asserted.  

Texas went to the Supreme Court because it is the court of first instance that deals with claims that arise between states, according to the law. 

The lawsuit filed by the Texas prosecutor generated the approval of some citizens, who are surprised that there are not more who defend the electoral process, among them the Twitter user @LaytonMitt.

“Wow, at least Texas has the guts!! Need an uprising from all states and the people. Thank you Texas, glad you see we DO have a Constitution!!” he wrote.

“So glad to hear this!!! I am grateful to those who are working for the American people! We need help here in NC,” enthusiastically tweeted user @DanielMacomber.

However, some are not sure that the Supreme Court will rule before Dec. 14, the date on which the Electoral College votes, to which another user responds that the most important date is Jan. 20.

“I appreciate all the responses, I very much want this to apply for the President, Article 3, section 2 would apply. I hope they have massive evidence to compel the SC to hear this but would they BEFORE the EC votes?” asked user @TimPerr18557733.

To which the response of the user @Patches19991225 was: “Electoral college voting doesn’t matter; the only date that matters per the constitution is jan 20.”
