Is Texas Atty General Ken Paxton's attempted end-run around the will of the voters to overturn the election for Trump going to work?

He has filed suit asking SCOTUS to invalidate the certified results in GA, MI, PA, & WI to throw it into the U.S. House which would seem to guarantee a win for 45.

Problem is Paxton was already indicted a while ago for alleged abuse of office & now he's in trouble again w/senior staffers claiming he accepted bribes from an Austin real estate magnate (see below).

Is this more corruption seeking help from corruption? (Paxton needs help from Trump/Barr & they need his help to stay in office). Will new SCOTUS justices "stay loyal" to Trump or the Law & Constitution?

    NFW.  US Constitution Art II, Sec 1, Clause 2 declares that each State shall appoint electors "in such Manner as the Legislature Thereof May Direct."  In other words, it's ENTIRELY up to each state to choose its slate of electors.  PA, MI, WI, etc don't need permission from TX to appoint electors,  and TX has no standing to object.

    It's just another last-gasp, futile, legal Hail Mary pass. Ken Paxton has been on thin ice for years and I suspect this will be the final nail in his political coffin. He might as well have filed a suit to resurrect the dead.

    To keep it short and sweet, the states in question did not follow the US constitution.  It needs to be fixed if not for this election, for the next ones to come in the future.  Otherwise we will become a one party country like CA which is a one party state.  There will be no where to run to.

    If Democrats cheated, as evidence shows, then THEY are "attempt(ing) an end run around the will of the voters" not the people who are exposing them. You're just spewing propaganda.

    medling with the election and the choice of the people is a crime and all who are trying to subvert this fair election should be charged.  The list is pretty long.

    Democrat party election cheating is the end run around the will of the voter.
