South Dakota joins Texas in SCOTUS challenge of election results
PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota joined several other states in support of Texas’ lawsuit against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin over contested election results.
In the filing, which was submitted December 7, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block the battleground states from casting what plaintiffs claim are “unlawful and constitutionally tainted votes” in the Electoral College.
Tim Bormann, chief of staff for South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, made the following statement of his office’s intent to assist in the case:
The State of South Dakota believes in free and fair elections. Our office has received thousands of calls and emails from concerned citizens and we have listened to our constituents and voters. That is why South Dakota has, today, joined the Amicus Brief of the State of Missouri in support of State of Texas v Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of Georgia, State of Michigan, and State of Wisconsin.
