Pardon my surprise when I report that Montana’s RINO Attorney General, Tim Fox, has thrown his support behind the Texas lawsuit challenging the results of four states in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Texas claims that Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin made unconstitutional changes to their state election laws because the changes were not made by the state legislatures as mandated by the U.S. Constitution. Most of the changes made it easier to vote, often using the argument of a coronavirus emergency to justify the changes.
Montana Republicans we’re pushing for our state to join the lawsuit, but it was no sure thing. I’d call Fox at best a lukewarm Trump supporter, and in general an undependable supporter of conservative principles. Nonetheless, the pressure led Fox to do the right thing.
“What we’ve seen in the day and age of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is numerous executive officers, governors, secretaries of state and others see fit to change their state laws for various reasons on how the election will be conducted in their state without approval of the Legislature,” Fox said Wednesday.
“The argument that Texas makes is that is in and of itself unconstitutional, that it gives rise to irregularities and the potential for fraud that should be of concern to all Americans and the U.S. Supreme Court.”
Texas has been joined by 18 states so far in supporting the lawsuit, which if successful would likely have the effect of overturning the presumed victory of Joe Biden and asking Congress to choose the president instead.
I would be remiss if I did not point out that Fox managed to get in a backhanded slap at Trump and his team when he announced his support for the lawsuit, calling the chance of success “slim at best.”
“While the odds of the U.S. Supreme Court accepting Texas’s belated lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are slim at best, the case raises important constitutional questions about the separation of powers and the integrity of mail-in ballots in those defendant states.”
Thanks, Tim, for your lukewarm support for constitutional order and the rule of law! Glad you could see that your entire political future was at risk if you tried to turn your back on the voters!
