Oklahoma is backing a Texas lawsuit that seeks to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in four critical swing states that President-elect Joe Biden won.
In a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court, Oklahoma said the court should throw out the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Texas claimed Biden's wins in those states were the result of voting "irregularities" or illegal changes to voting procedures.
“I am firmly committed to election security, which is why we have already been involved in numerous lawsuits to combat eleventh hour efforts to change state voting laws in states across the country,” Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter said. “I regret that the U.S. Supreme Court is the only forum available to resolve the many legitimate concerns regarding state elections. That is why I am joining the amicus brief in support of the Texas case, to encourage the highest court in the land to thoughtfully consider and address the matters presented.”
Courts in those four states have widely rejected those claims, and the U.S. Supreme Court has already denied requests to overturn results.
All 50 states have certified their votes ahead of Monday's electoral college vote.
Republicans in the Oklahoma House of Representatives have praised Hunter for signing on to this brief. In a statement, they said that the Republican lawmakers contend that there is enough evidence of fraud in the general election that a legal challenge is warranted.
“The integrity of our national elections is vital for the citizens of our country and for the freedoms we currently enjoy,” the lawmakers said in a joint statement.
