- Arkansas, Alabama & Louisiana Support Texas Before US Supreme Court, Alleging ‘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.”
