Missouri, Kentucky AGs Enter Litigation Questioning Validity of Mail-In Voters Obtained After Election

One of the procedural problems that complicate the 2020 general election is whether or not the election officials in the states have the authority to unilaterally change the voting time limits in their states without passing laws to do so. Two additional State Attorneys Generals have also lent their names to the court action.

Attorneys General in Missouri and Kentucky have added their names to the Republican lawsuit calling for a mail-in ballot in Pennsylvania. The case is now in the Supreme Court of the United States.

In addition, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes has announced that he is taking a leave of absence from his job to consult with President Trump’s legal team as his campaign appeals election results in crucial swing states.

The spokesperson for Missouri Attorney General, Eric Schmitt, said Schmitt would add his name to the amicus brief in a case brought before the High Court by the Republican Party of Pennsylvania. The case appeals the decision of the Supreme Court to allow a three-day extension of the time limit for delivery of mail-in ballots postmarked by Election Day.

Missouri AG Schmitt led a group of 10 State AGs in filing an amicus brief in the case of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar, urging SCOTUS to overturn the ruling of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania by mail-in vote.

Amicus brief is a supporting legal statement – similar to the weight of an expert witness that may be submitted by a non-litigating party in a particular situation.

Daniel Cameron, Attorney General of Kentucky, also exits the court.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, head of the Republican Association of Attorneys General, said in a series of tweets that the due process must be permitted to take place before a winner can be determined in the 2020 presidential race.

“No outlet or campaign should rush to call the 2020 race until every LEGALLY cast vote is counted,” he tweeted, adding, “While mainstream media and big tech want to immediately declare a winner, the American people have and can wait a few days or weeks longer to ensure the legitimacy of this election.”

Not since the questions surrounding the election of John F. Kennedy and the shadowy role Chicago politics played in that contest has there been allegations of such widespread fraud brought to litigation.
