Texas Attorney General Ken Paxon has filed lawsuits against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all of which were won by Biden because of his claim to the White House.
The 17 states, all of which backed the outgoing president, have now filed an amicus summary to support the case against Biden’s victories in those four states.
Mr Paxton claims that the changes to the election process in the states violated federal law and wants the US Supreme Court to bar those states from being selected.
There have been recent legal attempts by outgoing President’s supporters to try and get him back in power.
But supporters of the president have long suffered defeat in courts across the country in their attempts to deny Biden his legal victory.
According to reports, the Amix summary was led by Missouri.
Other states signed by Attorney Generals include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Virginia, South Dakota, Texas. Are
In his lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Paxton claimed that the four states had changed their election policies to break the law and allow voters to be deceived.
He asked the country’s apex court to withdraw the December 14 deadline for the states to nominate their presidential candidates.
“However, in the midst of this storm, this potentially illegitimate election result should not be limited,” Texas lawyers wrote.
Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Rafensparger has denied the allegations.
Georgia’s Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs said the allegations in the lawsuit were “false and irresponsible.”
“Texas alleges that there are 80,000 forged signatures on the absentee ballot in Georgia, but they do not bring forward a single person with whom this happened. That is not why it happened.”
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel dismissed Paxon’s lawsuit as a “publicity stunt.”
“Mr. Paxon’s actions are in the best interests of the Attorney General’s Office and the people of the great state of Texas.”
Earlier this week, the Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit seeking a mail-in ballot in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Trump has backed the lawsuit, calling it “big.”
“We will take an interest in Texas (several other states). It’s big. Our country needs victory! Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.
Last month, it was reported that the FBI was investigating allegations of abuse of office against Mr. Paxton.
