A group of Oklahoma House Republicans today praised Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter for signing on to a brief in support of the Texas attorney general’s lawsuit to contest election results in the key battleground states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The lawmakers contend, with counterparts in Texas and other states, that there is enough evidence of fraud in the Nov. 3 general election, including late changes to voter laws without legislative approval, in the states mentioned above to warrant a legal challenge.

“The integrity of our national elections is vital for the citizens of our country and for the freedoms we currently enjoy,” the lawmakers said in a joint statement. “Fraud in even one state affects the security of all others. The irregularities witnessed in these key battleground states, and the changes to voting rules usurping the legislative process, are alarming and warrant further scrutiny by the Supreme Court of the United States. We, therefore, are pleased that Attorney General Mike Hunter has chosen to act on behalf of all Oklahomans in filing suit against these states, challenging the changes made to voting rules and procedures in violation of the Electors Clause of the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 2.”
