RALEIGH – In a predictable move, Democrat NC Attorney General Josh Stein has filed an amicus curiae in support of the four defendant states in the exploding Texas lawsuit over 2020 election violations.
The line in the sand has been drawn. All told, around 20 states are lining up in support of the unconstitutional election rule changes in the defending states. On the other side are now 17 states filing amicus briefs in support of Texas, and half a dozen states joining the Trump legal team in filing a motion to intervene and officially join plaintiffs in the case.
Nationwide, this is what the battle over the election looks like:
So, even though North Carolina went for Donald Trump; even though the Republican majority in the state legislature expanded in 2020; and even though every Trump voter and North Carolina elector has been similarly injured by the defendant states’ unconstitutional actions, AG Stein has — ON BEHALF OF NORTH CAROLINA — signed up to help defend the defendants and insure a Biden inauguration regardless.
And why not?
It makes sense that AG Stein is feeling defensive. He, his mentor Roy Cooper, and Democrats running the State Board of Elections ALSO worked to undermine election law, settling a lawsuit in order to change election rules arbitrarily with out legislative consent.
As such, North Carolina changed the same kind of rules, for the same reasons, as did the defendant states.
But to join the suit in support of defendants — again, ON BEHALF OF NORTH CAROLINA — is a slap in the face of the Republican legislative majority, every Trump elector, and every Trump voter in the state.
