Thank you, Mr. Willman.

This is a great move, since as you have laid out, state vs. state lawsuits proceed directly to the Supreme Court, something clearly mandated by the Constitution. Time is of the essence, and an argument that the states being sued have all violated the stipulation that the rules for Federal elections established by individual states must be through actions of the legislature, is just what the doctor ordered. The attempts to pull partisan end runs without meeting the requirement of the Federal Constitution could certainly lead to invalidation of the elctions in those states.

And other states are apparently joining the suit, seven thus far, with the potential for more.

Take me to Texas
Two hundred years ago
Where a pride rose from the ashes of San Jacinto
It still beats in every heart
Like a battle cry
Where I was born, where I was raised, so when I die

Hells yeah! So proud to be from Texas today.

It looks like "the South shall rise again" is coming to pass here as Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina have all joined in, along with the land of Crazy Horse (visit the monument before Antifa does), South Dakota; and now Missouri. Virginia's AG Herring is notably missing, but then there might have been election issues in VA too..

Meanwhile I hear China has had infiltrators all over the place, including putting the Fang in Congressman Swalwell's office (and maybe his bed, too).

I wonder why that never came out duing any of the Mueller hearings or the Impreachment? It gives new meaning to the phrase "We're all in this together".

Since the "South" was put under the federal thumb after LBJ signed the Voting Rights Act (VRA) wiping out the last vestiges of Jim Crow voting restrictions, there is precedence for federal jurisdiction when a constructive pattern of voter debasement and disenfranchisement is demonstrated in these four particular states.

VRA was legislative; this is an appeal for judicial relief. However time is of the essence in this case, requiring expedited judicial intervention.

All politics are local. We elected a mayor once shortly after our city passed a "term limits" ordinance.

There was a question whether this new prohibition against serving multiple successive terms applied to the person, or the title of office served. He was a term limited city council person, but was his first term sitting as mayor

The cast dragged on for several years, quibblng mainly over a missing comma. Ultimately the courts ruled against the sitting mayor and he was removed from office mid-term. They ruled term limits applied to the total time a person served in any elected office; even though he had never served as mayor.

The mayor's election was held while this controversy was raging. So voters knew what they were voting for. They wanted this person as their mayor. Consequently, the express will of the people was ultimately over-turned by the courts.

He was the last independent, non-partisan mayor we had, and our long slow slide into employee union backed election officials started from that time forward. Now our city government. thanks for "election reform" is 100% dysfunctional.

Yet again, "term limits" solves nothing. On a local level, just like at the state level, it created a special interest, one-party hegemony. And fiscal ruin. And a city council who now votes to throw you in jail if you use plastic straws. Many have tried to unseat this unholy one-party alliance in our city, but none have succeeded.

Deap,

LBJ did nothing of the kind. The democrats, however, are busy re-imposing restrictions on citizens using Covid and corporate mandates to do so.

All,

Conservative Tree House reports that, as of today, seventeen states have filed an amicus brief in Texas' suit against Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, & Georgia.

Well, that suit seems to have really hit a nerve with those states concerned with assuring that the rules for Federal elections are subject to the will of the states' legislatures,and not instead subject to a largely anonymous putsch originating in the executive. Legislative control means that legislators must put their names on their votes; i.e. personal accountability. This is highly significant.

Thank you, Texas, for stepping up, and bringing this action.
