Chairman Allen West’s Response to SCOTUS Decision

December 11, 2020 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.  […]

Even now, unverified ballots in Tarrant County continue to undermine the electoral integrity.  Chairman Allen West stated, […]

This is a textbook case of Democrats legislating […]
