LA AG Jeff Landry Supports Texas Lawsuit: ‘Louisiana Citizens are Damaged if Elections in Other States Were Conducted Outside the Confines of the Constitution While we Obeyed the Rules’

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is throwing himself into the fray with the lawsuit from Texas regarding ‘voting irregularities’ with certain key swing states. Landry previously filed a brief of his own to the Supreme Court and now he’s issuing opinion and support for the new Texas suit. He is urging that they give it a fair shake in so many words.

He tweeted his case stating that if other states don’t follow the rules, his citizens are harmed in essence, captioning it:

“Read our full statement regarding the ongoing controversies over the 2020 federal election and the new motion put forth by the State of #Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court at http://agjefflandry.com/Article/10825.”

Disclose.tv tweeted about it citing his statement:

“JUST IN – #Louisiana citizens are “damaged if elections in other states were conducted outside the confines of the Constitution while we obeyed the rules,” @AGJeffLandry writes in a statement just released:”

Landry’s statement references a legal brief which his offices along with many other states filed with the United States Supreme Court that urged the Justices to look into the conduct in Pennsylvania, what is said to be ignoring the US Constitution in regards to the conduct of the election.

Landry states the recent Texas lawsuit includes some of the same arguments. He closes his statement with “Louisiana citizens are damaged if elections in other states were conducted outside the confines of the constitution while we obeyed the rules.”

The full statement from today on his website states:

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement regarding the ongoing controversies over the 2020 federal election and the new motion put forward by the State of Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Millions of Louisiana citizens, and tens of millions of our fellow citizens in the country, have deep concerns regarding the conduct of the 2020 federal elections. Deeply rooted in these concerns is the fact that some states appear to have conducted their elections with a disregard to the U.S. Constitution. Furthermore, many Louisianans have become more frustrated as some in media and the political class try to sidestep legitimate issues for the sake of expediency. 

Weeks ago, on behalf of the citizens of Louisiana, my office joined many other states in filing a legal brief with the United States Supreme Court urging the Justices to look into the conduct of the election in Pennsylvania where their state court ignored the U.S. Constitution in regard to the conduct of the election. The U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 4, states plainly: “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature …” The power for the conduct of federal elections is held by the State Legislatures in each state. In states like Pennsylvania, the judicial branch attempted to seize control of these duties and obligations and to set their own rules. These actions appear to be unconstitutional. If it is unconstitutional for Pennsylvania to take this action, it is similarly unconstitutional for other states to have done the same.

Only the U.S. Supreme Court can ultimately decide cases of real controversy among the states under our Constitution. That is why the Justices should hear and decide the case which we have joined representing the citizens of Louisiana.

Furthermore, the U.S. Supreme Court should consider the most recent Texas motion, which contains some of the same arguments.

Louisiana citizens are damaged if elections in other states were conducted outside the confines of the Constitution while we obeyed the rules.”
