Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is taking legal action against Wisconsin and several other states over how they handled the November election.
The lawsuit alleges Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania ignored election laws and made “unconstitutional changes” amid the pandemic.
“The four states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election,” said Paxton in a press release.
“I’m confident that the Supreme Court is going to quickly reject this case,” Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul told WTMJ. “It relies on some of the same legal arguments that have been made in other cases already. It also–frankly–delves into conspiracy theories…those conspiracy theories have already been debunked. It’s an embarrassment to see this suit filed.”
Kaul says the lawsuit seeks to throw out the state’s vote entirely, and asks the Legislature to decide the winner.
“It’s particularly strange here where Wisconsin has a system that has worked so well, where we have consistently a much higher turnout than Texas,” Kaul said.
