Arkansas, Alabama & Louisiana support Texas before US Supreme Court – ‘unconstitutional’ election in four states
Attorneys-general of Arkansas and Alabama have now joined Louisiana in backing the push by Texas to challenge the presidential election results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin before the US Supreme Court.
“After reviewing the motion filed by Texas in the US Supreme Court, I have determined that I will support the motion in all legally appropriate manners. The integrity of our elections is a critical part of our nation and it must be upheld,” Arkansas AG Leslie Rutlege announced on Tuesday evening.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall issued a statement likewise supporting the effort of his Texas colleague Ken Paxton, saying that “unconstitutional actions and fraudulent votes in other states not only affect the citizens of those states, they affect the citizens of all states.”
Every unlawful vote counted, or lawful vote uncounted, debases and dilutes citizens’ free exercise of the franchise.

The four battleground states declared Democrat Joe Biden the victor based on large numbers of mail-in ballots counted after Election Day.
While Marshall stopped short of signing on to the Texas lawsuit, he said that he expects the Supreme Court to “quickly” decide whether to hear the case, and that the decision will “instruct” Alabama how to continue fighting to ensure election integrity.
Earlier in the evening, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said his state had “deep concerns” about how the elections were run in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
While Landry did not sign onto the Texas lawsuit either, he said it echoes the claims made in the previous amicus brief by several states, backing Pennsylvania Republicans who wanted the election results in the Keystone State voided due to irregularities.
Both mainstream media and social networks hastened to declare Biden the winner of the election and label as “false” or “disputed” anything that challenged that, in particular President Donald Trump.
Unlike the cases brought by Trump’s own lawyers and allies, however, Texas is not alleging election fraud, but arguing that the four states engaged in “voting irregularities,” improper “amendments to States’ duly enacted election laws,” and even potential suppression of the Republican vote, “whether lawful or unlawful.”
“These flaws cumulatively preclude knowing who legitimately won the 2020 election and threaten to cloud all future elections,” said the motion filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton, which the Supreme Court has placed on the docket, but has yet to adjudicate.
Paxton argues that the four states’ declaring Biden the winner is “unlawful” and should be reviewed by state legislators, who under the Constitution have the power to appoint electors themselves. Republicans control all four state legislatures.
The Supreme Court has given the four states until Thursday afternoon to file responses to Paxton’s suit.
