Texas attorney general is asking the Supreme Court to overturn the presidential election in four states won by Joe Biden because the election procedures diluted the votes of Texans. I’ve talked to a few Kentuckians lately who are wondering why our attorney general hasn’t signed onto the lawsuit. For starters, Texas doesn’t have standing before the Court to bring such charges—charges that have already been litigated and found without merit in other courts. But here’s something more interesting. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is under indictment for securities fraud and is facing another corruption investigation. National Review calls Paxton’s lawsuit frivolous and blatantly political and that he may be fishing for a pardon. Now, election corruption should be rooted out, but before a case goes to court it must be based on facts and have merit.
