Ken Paxton

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Supreme Court against four states for their handling of the presidential election.

In the lawsuit, he claims Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enact last-minute changes to the voting process.

Paxton claims the four battleground states skewed the results of the election by flooding voters with unlawful ballots and applications and ignored requirements as to how those ballots were received, evaluated and counted.

In a statement released Tuesday, Paxton said:

"Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election. The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections."
