LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The State of Nebraska has now joined an amicus brief, which allows them to participate in the argument of, the State of Texas’ lawsuit questioning the integrity of the electoral process. A total of seventeen states have now come forward in support of the lawsuit.

Nebraska made a similar move a month ago, participating in the argument challenging the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision to extend the deadline for absentee ballots.

Nebraska’s Attorney General Office alleged that the decision violates the Constitution’s separation-of-powers principle, that only state legislatures- not state courts-have the authority to alter presidential election rules. The U.S. Supreme Court has not decided whether it will hear this case.

“I fully concur with the Attorney General’s decision to have the State of Nebraska join as an amicus in this case,” said Secretary of State Bob Evnen. “It is absolutely essential that credible claims of election irregularities be brought to light and fully investigated.”
