Below is Chairman Allen West’s statement regarding the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to dismiss Texas’ constitutionally legitimate and critical lawsuit:
“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 U.S. congressmen, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law — resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says state can violate the U.S. Constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the Constitution.”
The Texas GOP will always stand for the Constitution and for the rule of law, even while others don’t.
