Texas Files Supreme Court Lawsuit that has the Power to Overturn Election
Texas filed a case with the US Supreme Court Monday to challenge illegal election actions in four battleground states. The Texas lawsuit alleges Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin changed voting procedures through state courts or executive actions not permitted under the US Constitution.
Trump legal team member Jenna Ellis tweeted: “Huge: Texas sues four states directly in the Supreme Court over election integrity!!” Following several failed attempts in legal proceedings within key states such as Pennsylvania, Trump’s resources have expanded to supporting conservative state efforts to challenge election certification where widespread voter fraud remains in need of investigation.
Key portions of the Texas lawsuit note:
As set forth in the accompanying brief and complaint, the 2020 election suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the Defendant States:
• Non-legislative actors’ purported amendments to States’ duly enacted election laws, in violation of the Electors Clause’s vesting State legislatures with plenary authority regarding the appointment of presidential electors
• Intrastate differences in the treatment of voters, with more favorable allotted to voters – whether lawful or unlawful – in areas administered by local government under Democrat control and with populations with higher ratios of Democrat voters than other areas of Defendant States.
• The appearance of voting irregularities in the Defendant States that would be consistent with the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those States’ election laws.

The goal of the Texas lawsuit is clear: they are pleading with the Supreme Court to allow state legislatures to appoint electors in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The state’s legislators would then choose which presidential candidate receives the state’s electoral votes, allowing each state the ability to give Trump its electoral votes if they believe voter fraud warrants such action.
A Breitbart article further notes, “Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures. Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were ‘voting irregularities’ in these states as a result of the above.”
All four battleground states have served as the source of widespread voter fraud allegations. In Michigan, 2,060 dead absentee voters cast an absentee ballot in the 2020 election. How many more may be spread across the state?
In Georgia, the infamous suitcase scandal has shown video footage of Fulton County poll workers pulling suitcases of ballots to process after all other poll workers had been told to leave. At approximately the same period on the early morning after election night, Georgia’s voting numbers dramatically flipped from a substantial Trump lead to a Biden victory.
Wisconsin’s allegations include multiple counties in which voter turnout exceeded the number of registered voters, in one case of up to 200 percent. Despite legal proceedings to investigate, efforts to date have been dismissed.
The Texas lawsuit, if heard in the US Supreme Court, could result in an interesting outcome. After three SCOTUS justices nominated by President Trump and a conservative majority, a favorable outcome may be possible. If so, look for a vicious battle within the state legislatures of these four battleground locations, as GOP leaders seek to stop the steal and keep a Biden-Harris nightmare from becoming reality.
