U.S. Supreme court rejects Trump allies' Pennsylvania case

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to take a case brought by two Pennsylvania congressmen challenging the legality of the state’s universal mail-in balloting.

The court said regarding the appeal by Republican Rep. Mike Kelly: “The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”

Constitutional scholar Mark Levin commented on Twitter.

“Sadly, SCOTUS could not or would not cobble together 4 members to stop the lawlessness that took place by PA officials,” he wrote. “It was a very solid case with clear federal ramifications but they denied relief.”

On his Fox News show Sunday night, Levin argued “systemic fraud” in the 2020 election clearly took place 14 months ago when Pennyslvania officials illegally changed laws that compromised the integrity of the vote.

In October 2019, the Republican-led state legislature passed a bill, Act 77, changing the law to allow univeral mail-in voting. However, the Pennyslvania Constitution requires that such changes to election law be made only by an amendment to the state constitution that culuminates in a vote by the people.

Kelly and Sean Parnell took that argument and others to court, and a Pennsylvania appellate judge issued a temporary injunction to stop certification of the vote. The judge ruled they were likely to succeed on the merits of their case. The state’s Supreme Court, however, overturned the ruling, prompting an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Last week, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, arguing the case “raises serious legal issues,” urged the Supreme Court to hear the lawsuit.

“This appeal argues that Pennsylvania cannot change the rules in the middle of the game. If Pennsylvania wants to change how voting occurs, the state must follow the law to do so,” said Cruz, who had volunteered to argue the case before the high court.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision, he said, reflected “their political and ideological biases.”

“Just over a month ago, Justice Alito, along with Justice Thomas and Justice Gorsuch, wrote — correctly, I believe — concerning the Pennsylvania court’s previous decision to count ballots received after Election Day, that ‘there is a strong likelihood that the State Supreme Court decision violates the Federal Constitution,'” Cruz pointed out.

Last Thursday, Trump campaign lawyer Jordan Sekulow said the most likely path for the president would be for the U.S. Supreme Court to combine cases from several states that would together determine the outcome of the election. The matter could then go to the House, where the Constitution gives each state delegation one vote. Republicans control 26 state delegations while Democrats have 23.

The election also could go to the House via state legislatures, and Republicans in a number of the battleground states are discussing asserting their constitutional authority to dispute the selection of electors to the Electoral College.

Allen West: Seven States Will Join Texas in SCOTUS Lawsuit Against Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania

Col. Allen West joined Steve Bannon Tuesday evening on The War Room.   Allen West, the Republican Party Texas state leader, went on to discuss today’s Texas lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania at the Supreme Court.

West told Steve Bannon that Louisiana joined the lawsuit on Tuesday afternoon.

Louisiana AG Jeff Landry announced earlier this afternoon that Louisiana is joining in on the Texas lawsuit filed yesterday against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania over irregularities and lawlessness in the conduct of the 2020 election.

Allen West told Steve Bannon, “I think you’re going to see ten states sign on to this petition and lawsuit.  I know as you said Louisiana just came on board.”

SEVEN states have now joined the Texas lawsuit, arguing that the Equal Protection Clause has been violated in this election from state-to-state:

Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota.
