Emmer backs bid to get U.S. Supreme Court to overturn election

Emmer is among a large group of House Republicans formally supporting a dubious last-ditch bid to get the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the presidential election.

In all, 106 House Republicans signed onto an amicus brief in support of a suit filed last week by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. It attempts to invalidate President-elect Joe Biden's 62 Electoral College votes in four swing states.

Emmer was the only Minnesota Republican to sign on. In a statement Thursday, he said the amicus brief "asserts the democratic right of state legislatures to make appointments to the Electoral College was violated in several states."

3. "democratic right of state legislatures to make appointments to the Electoral College"

"democratic" right? What about the democratic rights of 1,717,077 Minnesota voters who voted for Biden/Harris?

(Compared to 1,484,065 for Trump/Pence, for a 52.6% to 45.4% difference, per AP data https://www.yahoo.com/elections )
