Major news just dropped about the Supreme Court. This is a bombshell announcement — the Pennsylvania election results now hang in the balance.
“Today, an emergency appeal was filed in the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the election results in Pennsylvania,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a statement. “This appeal raises serious legal issues, and I believe the Court should hear the case on an expedited basis.”
The lawsuit, which was filed by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) and other Republicans, directly challenges a Pennsylvania law allowing “universal mail-in voting,” which the suit claims is a violation of the Pennsylvania Constitution.
Reportedly, the state’s constitution only allows vote-by-mail “in narrow and defined circumstances,” said Cruz, and it is why he wants the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case as soon as possible.
Of course, it would have been ideal for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to handle the issue, however, the court’s majority decided that the lawsuit came too late — seeing as voting had already started in the Keystone State.
But the U.S. Supreme Court may come to a different conclusion, and Cruz certainly thinks that is a possibility. After all, as Texas Solicitor General, Cruz argued before the court nine times. He has the experience to know what will stick.
