Today, State Rep. Scott Wiggam (R-Wayne County) announces he has drafted and signed a letter sent to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost urging him to join the state of Texas in their lawsuit to fight election irregularities.

Wiggam and a large group of legislators are calling on Yost to join Texas’ lawsuit against Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania regarding irregularities in the vote count, unexplained statistical anomalies, and misconduct by these states - according to the letter.

“Texas has now filed a lawsuit with the United States Supreme Court against these states because of alleged unconstitutional rule changes and actions taken by these states leading up to the election,” said Wiggam. “We applaud Texas for seeking to uphold the will of their constituents and assuring that all valid votes everywhere are counted in the national election for president.”

Wiggam noted that many constituents have contacted multiple legislators at the Statehouse over the last few days regarding the issue.

“As legislators answerable to our constituents, we are concerned that Ohio voters are being disenfranchised as well,” said Wiggam. “We believe that Ohio should intervene and legally support the Texas lawsuit, thereby ensure that democratic principles of one person one vote are secure and that our constitutional republic remains intact.”

In total, 42 legislators have signed onto the letter for Yost to join the Texas lawsuit.
