Attorney General Curtis Hill today joined a coalition of 17 state attorneys general in an amicus brief supporting a Texas effort to persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to review alleged election irregularities in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
“Few things matter more to our American democracy than ensuring the integrity of elections under the rule of law,” Attorney General Hill said. “It’s eminently important for the U.S. Supreme Court to provide clarity and guidance on constitutional issues of such magnitude.”
The amicus brief contains three main arguments. First, the separation of powers provision of the Constitution’s Electors Clause is a structural check on government that safeguards liberty. Second, stripping away safeguards of voting by mail can create risks of voter fraud. And, finally, the defendant states abolished critical safeguards against fraud in voting by mail.
