Texas GOP responded to the Supreme Court on Friday after the state’s lawsuit attempting to block the 2020 election results’ certification was shot down.
Texas hinted at secession in their statement, “Perhaps law-abiding states should band together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”
The GOP stated that the Supreme Court decreed a State can take unconstitutional actions and even violate its election law.
According to the group, the decision establishes a precedent that states can violate the US Constitution without being held accountable. The decision then has far-reaching ramifications for the constitutional republic’s future.
“Perhaps law-abiding states should band together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution,” it added.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton revealed on Tuesday morning that the state filed a lawsuit against Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania for using the pandemic to “justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”
Paxton said that the trust in the election processes integrity was destroyed in Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. He said that the states violated the statutes enacted by the elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution.
Paxton claimed that the states not only tainted the integrity of their citizen’s votes but also affected that of Texas and every other state that had lawful elections.
“Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error,” Paxton continued.
The lawsuit also states that several officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as a justification for ignoring state laws concerning absentee and mail-in voting. It claimed the election was “less secure” in the Defendant States.
