Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will join nine of his fellow Republican attorney generals in their attempt to challenge the mail-in ballots received in Pennslyvania for the 2020 presidential election.
Donald Trump and his minions just won’t let the election go. And now, Cameron, Kentucky’s attorney general, will be working alongside fellow conservatives with their moved to ask the U.S. Supreme Court “to reverse the absentee ballot ruling of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.” Cameron is the attorney general that doubled down on his decision not to give the Breonna Taylor grand jury the option to consider murder charges.
On Monday, Cameron and the nine other Republican state attorneys general filed an amicus brief to support a challenge to Pennsylvania’s decision to count mail-in ballots that arrived through Friday, reports Lex18 News. “Our action today is about ensuring that the rule of law is upheld during the election process,” Cameron writes in the statement.
The move comes after the Pennsylvania Supreme County decided to allow a three-day extension set by Democratic state officials who wanted to ensure that all mail-in ballots were counted due to Postal Service delays amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to expedite the process in a 4-4 vote. Three justices were reportedly hesitant; the attorneys are now looking to the new Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett to give them the answer they want.
“The decision provided a window of time after Election Day, when the preliminary results were announced, in which unscrupulous actors could attempt to influence a close Presidential election,” the Republican Attorneys General Association said in the brief.
