Swing State AGs Blast Texas AG’s Petition To SCOTUS

The Washington Post reports:

“With all due respect, the Texas Attorney General is constitutionally, legally and factually wrong about Georgia,” Katie Byrd, spokeswoman for the Georgia Attorney General’s Office, said in a statement. Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr is a Republican.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) called the effort an attack on American elections that is “uniquely unserious” and “beyond meritless, beyond reckless” in a statement. He also reacted on Twitter, writing that the push to overturn election results has “become a circus.”

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul (D) promised to “defend against this attack on our democracy.” And Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) released a statement describing Paxton’s actions as “beneath the dignity of … the people of the great state of Texas.”
