Bergman, Walberg Support Texas Election Lawsuit

Two U.S. representatives from Michigan are backing the lawsuit by Texas challenging election results in Michigan and three other states.

Representatives Jack Bergman and Tim Walberg say they will sign a legal brief in support of the lawsuit.

The lawsuit argues that alleged election irregularities need to be investigated, and looks to block the states’ electors from voting in the Electoral College on Monday.

At the same time, Michigan Congressmen Paul Mitchell and Fred Upton say they will not sign the document. Both acknowledge that Joe Biden won the election.

Legal experts call the lawsuit a long shot.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed a response to the lawsuit looking to overturn the state’s election results with the U. S. Supreme Court Thursday afternoon.

In her response, Nessel notes that the challenge by Texas is “an unprecedented one, without factual foundation and without a valid legal basis.”

“The base of Texas’s claims rests on an assertion that Michigan has violated its own election laws. Not true,” the filing states. “That claim has been repeatedly rejected in the federal and state courts in Michigan, and just yesterday the Michigan Supreme Court rejected a last-ditch effort to request an audit. Not only is the complaint here meritless, but its jurisdictional flaws abound and provide solid ground to dispose of this action.”
