Samuel Case, FISM News

Last week FISM News reported Texas Senator Ted Cruz was pushing for the Supreme Court to hear an emergency appeal challenging the PA election results issued by Pennsylvania Republicans. The appeal alleged that the expansion of absentee voting in the state was unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court has since denied to hear this appeal. “The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the court said without further comment.

Cruz released a statement saying he was “disappointed” the court chose not to take up the case, saying “the anger and division we see across the Nation needs resolution.”

The Associated Press reports the plaintiff’s lawyer will “file a separate request to ask the court to consider the case on its underlying merits on an expedited basis.”

Meanwhile, Texas is spearheading a lawsuit backed by seventeen others states alleging Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin “violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution” by “unlawfully enacting last-minute changes.”

Trump said he will be “intervening” in this suit, calling it “the big one.”
