Republican Lawmakers Ask to Join Texas Suit
Suit seeks to revisit elections in four states

A group of Republican legislators have asked Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum to join the lawsuit filed by the State of Texas in the US Supreme Court asking the court to throw out the results of the presidential election in four states. Each of these states went to Biden.

The letter signed by 12 Republican legislators, and addressed to the Oregon Attorney General, reads:

We the undersigned urge you to join the growing list of states joining the lawsuit filed by the State of Texas in which they have argued that electors from Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin should not be allowed to cast their votes in part because those states unconstitutionally changed their voting procedures during the coronavirus pandemic to allow for increased mail-in ballots.

According to the complaint, filed in the US Supreme Court:

"...[T]he 2020 election suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the Defendant States:

We believe that fair elections are vital to our democratic republic and that the submission of electors by these four states should be at least postponed.
