The state of Texas sued Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on Monday night with the US Supreme Court challenging their unlawful election procedures.

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.

The lawsuit reads:

As set forth in the accompanying brief andcomplaint, the 2020 election suffered from significantand unconstitutional irregularities in the DefendantStates:

• 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 theappointment of presidential electors

• Intrastate differences in the treatment of voters,with more favorable allotted to voters – whetherlawful or unlawful – in areas administered bylocal government under Democrat control andwith populations with higher ratios of Democratvoters than other areas of Defendant States.

• The appearance of voting irregularities in theDefendant States that would be consistent withthe unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those States’ election laws.

Career LEO and veteran, Roscoe B. Davis, has provided an excellent explanation of the lawsuit via Twitter (see thread):

Subsequent tweets of Davis included:

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states, this is hard tactics.

The Great State of 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.

These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

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. Bush v. Gore 2000.

Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of these changes.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke on the case with Fox News Host Sean Hannity. He tweeted, “I believe #SCOTUS should choose to take the case and hear the appeal because we need the Supreme Court to step in and ensure we are following the Constitution and following the law.”
