A Texas lawsuit aimed at making sure the 2020 presidential election conforms to the U.S. Constitution has attracted 17 other red states to join in, but Georgia remains absent, posing a question what the Peach State’s Republican attorney general is hiding.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court on Monday, Dec. 7, asking the court to invalidate the election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
Paxton said that the four states exploited the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic to “justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 general election.”
“The battleground states flooded their people with unlawful ballot applications and ballots while ignoring statutory requirements as to how they were received, evaluated, and counted,” Paxton added.
The lawsuit alleged that pre-election changes made to voting rules and procedures in the four states were unconstitutional.
On Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 9, a group of 17 other states filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court supporting the Texas’s request to ensure the 2020 elections follow the election laws outlined in the Constitution.
The states are Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.
President Donald Trump late on Wednesday thanked these states for joining in “the extraordinary case against the greatest Election Fraud in the history of the United States.”
Wow! At least 17 States have joined Texas in the extraordinary case against the greatest Election Fraud in the history of the United States. Thank you!

The president has reportedly asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to argue the U.S. Supreme Court case.
Though 18 of the country’s 25 state Republican attorneys general have petitioned the Supreme Court, Georgia remains absent from the list.
In a tweet on Wednesday, lawyer Lin Wood questioned why the Georgia attorney general refuses to settle or join Texas litigation seeking constitutional voting system be upheld and enforced, what he is hiding, and who he trying is to protect.
A state attorney general has a sworn duty to uphold & enforce the law.
Why is GA Atty. Gen. @ChrisCarr_Ga refusing to settle or join Texas litigation seeking Constitutional voting system be upheld & enforced?
What is he hiding?
Who is he trying to protect?
NOT We The People.
