Arrington Responds to SCOTUS Rejection of Texas Election Suit
Washington, December 12, 2020
WASHINGTON – Today Rep. Arrington released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s rejection of Texas’ election lawsuit.
“The Constitution has always been the cornerstone of our great republic. Article II undeniably gives state legislatures the sole authority to establish election laws, and that principle must never be compromised. While there are other complaints being considered by the courts, that was the focus of our concern in the amicus brief that I co-signed.
“Regardless of the outcome of this election, we must go to whatever lengths to ensure we uphold and protect the Constitution, rule of law, and the integrity of our electoral process. If we ever fail to do so, it will be the demise of our great country.
“I am deeply disappointed the petition was rejected on standing by the Supreme Court; however, the actual claims were not dismissed or rejected on their merits. Therefore, I will continue to press SCOTUS to give the people their day in court and give these issues the serious consideration they deserve.
“In times like these, we would all do well to remember the wisdom of John Adams: ‘Duty is ours, results are God’s.’
“I will continue to fulfill my duty to the Constitution and conscience in this matter.”
