Here are the Republican members of Congress who signed on to the suit to throw out the votes in 4 states


More than 120 of the 196 Republican members of the House of Representatives have signed their names to an amicus brief on Thursday in support of a Texas lawsuit filed with the U.S. Supreme Court that seeks to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election and keep Donald Trump in office for a second term.

The lawsuit, which most legal experts say has little chance of succeeding at the high court, looks to throw out the results in four states won by Biden: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the suit has been joined by 17 other states that voted for Trump. It relies on a dubious statistical analysis to claim that Biden could not possibly have legally received over 7 million votes more than Trump, and seeks to disenfranchise votes cast in the four states, while leaving vote totals intact in all others.

Responding to the lawsuit in a brief filed Thursday, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro called the attempt to overturn the will of the voters “seditious.”

“The court should not abide this seditious abuse of the judicial process, and should send a clear and unmistakable signal that such abuse must never be replicated,” the brief stated.

The decision by Republican lawmakers to sign the amicus brief has set off a firestorm of controversy, with critics accusing them of an attempt to subvert democracy.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1337424786457309184&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.yahoo.com%2Fhere-are-the-republican-members-of-congress-who-signed-on-to-the-suit-to-throw-out-the-votes-in-four-states-195834720.html&siteScreenName=YahooNews&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

In a Friday editorial, the Orlando Sentinel’s editorial board apologized for its endorsement of Rep. Michael Waltz, one of the Republicans who signed the brief.

“We apologize to our readers for endorsing Michael Waltz in the 2020 general election for Congress. We had no idea, had no way of knowing at the time, that Waltz was not committed to democracy.”

Whether the brief comes to be viewed as a scarlet letter, forever tarnishing the careers of the lawmakers who signed it, or a point of honor in future elections, remains to be seen. For now, here’s a list of the Republicans who lent their names to an effort to throw out the votes of more than 10 million Americans to keep Trump in office.
