Nebraska joins 16 other states supporting Texas filing to the Supreme Court
Nebraska has joined 16 other states that are showing support for a lawsuit from Texas attorney general, Ken Paxton, who demands that the 62 total Electoral College votes in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin be invalidated.
The lawsuit claims that each of those states unconstitutionally attempted to revise their states’ election statutes, removing protections that would guard against improprieties in voting by mail.
Statement from Nebraska Secretary of State Bob Evnen
“It is absolutely essential that credible claims of election improprieties be brought to light and fully investigated,” “Tens of millions of Americans have been left wondering about the integrity of our elections. The success of our representative democracy requires that legitimate concerns about the election be properly addressed. The Texas lawsuit is an effort to do so.”
The high court has asked for responses by Thursday.
Governor Pete Ricketts has yet to publicly acknowledge Joe Biden as President elect, and showed his support for the court challenge yesterday.
