Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund Files Amicus Brief in Pennsylvania Appellate Case.
Washington, D.C.: Now is the time for state legislatures to take up their constitutional authority and correct the mess created by fraudulent elections.
“Our Founding Fathers clearly gave state legislators absolute authority over the selection of that state’s electors,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “State legislatures are intended to be the ultimate defense against those who would attempt to rig or corrupt a presidential election. The media and the radical left are desperate to convince legislators particularly in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin that their power is limited by the governor or by the certification of electoral results, but nothing could be further from the truth.”
Martin continued: “The Electors Clause in Article II of the Constitution clearly gives state legislatures absolute constitutional authority over choosing presidential electors. It’s time for them to seize this power before dark forces succeed in silencing the voice of We the People.”
Numerous hearings in these and other battleground states have solidified public opinion on this matter, providing hours of sworn testimony and evidence of very targeted fraud in key districts.
