I think the proof is overwhelming that widespread and very organized voter fraud was committed. This fraud was to the extent that it changed the results of the Presidential race. In light of this, what should the Court do? Do they disenfranchise the voters and unilaterally declare a winner?
My answer is a resounding, “No”.
I think the Court will want a Constitutional answer and not want to be accused of legislating from the bench. If this is true, there is only one solution. How this solution may be worded will be interesting but ultimately, the race will be sent to the House of Representatives. I think the Electoral College will be bypassed, either directly or by wording that denies either candidate the required number of votes to win outright.
Let’s see if I’m right.
Oh, moments after I penned the above, there was this from the State of Texas.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued battleground states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin on Tuesday to challenge their 2020 presidential election results.
“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, ‘Defendant State’), usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes,” Paxton’s complaint says. “They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.”
Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to “declare that any electoral college votes cast by such presidential electors appointed in Defendant States Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin are in violation of the Electors Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and cannot be counted.
