The state of Georgia was not happy with the state of Texas after learning that Texas filed a lawsuit against it and several other swing states for changing the rules of the election in an unconstitutional way.
Texas alleged that Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin all changed the rules of their elections not through the legislature as the Constitution orders but through executive and judicial branches.
These rule changes made the elections unfair and unlawful, Texas charges, but Georgia does not agree. “With all due respect, the Texas Attorney General is constitutionally, legally and factually wrong about Georgia,” a spokesperson for the attorney general’s office said.
Texas thinks the remedy for the elections in these states is to send the election back to the state legislature to decide which electors should cast votes in the Electoral College.
All four of the states named in the suit have Republican-dominated legislatures that could then select President Donald Trump for the states electoral votes. Flipping these four states would give Trump enough electoral votes to be elected for a second term as president.
