Carter Files Amicus Brief with Concerns About 2020 Election

Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) today filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in support of the Texas v. Pennsylvania, et al. case. 

Recently, the Texas Attorney General filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court to invalidate the presidential elections in four states, arguing that those states used the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to unlawfully change election laws and weaken the integrity of the election. 

The amicus brief signed by 106 Members of Congress ensures the Supreme Court is aware of the crucial facts in the case that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin unconstitutionally bypassed their state legislatures to change how presidential electors are chosen.

"This case is about protecting the Constitution and our elections," said Carter."The Constitution is clear - only state legislatures can change how presidential electors are chosen. Whether you are a Democrat, Independent, or Republican, we should all agree that we need fair, honest, and transparent elections. The Supreme Court needs to ensure the integrity of our elections."
