To paraphrase a famous 1980 debate line from challenger Ronald Reagan to Democrat President Jimmy Carter, there she goes again. If the proverbial “fat lady” sang on Friday after the Supreme Court refused to hear a case filed by Texas — and joined by 18 other states — against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, either attorney Sidney Powell didn’t hear her singing — or just flat out ignored her.
Powell on Friday night announced “emergency filings” in the Supreme Court against Georgia and Michigan, and later, Arizona. “Pay attention!”, she tweeted.
Pay attention! We made emergency filings in #SupremeCourt tonight for #Georgia & #Michigan. Will be filing #Arizona #Wisconsin shortly. These cases raise constitutional issues & prove massive #fraud. Our plaintiffs have #standing #WeThePeople will not allow #rigged elections.”
Attention paid, Sidney — what “biblical” wisdom do you have for us, now?
Three-and-a-half hours later, Powell tweeted “Arizona case just filed!”
As reported by Law & Crime (one of Dan Abrams’s not-exactly-pro-Trump sites) on Friday night, one of the arguments Powell made in her “last-ditch effort” was that U.S. citizens are “not actually entitled to vote for president.” L&C said Powell’s latest suit is a version of Texas AG Ken Paxton’s argument that the right to elect presidents rests solely with state legislatures, and that, that right was usurped by various officials and bodies in Georgia.
Excerpts from Powell’s filing:
While the U.S. Constitution itself accords no right to vote for presidential electors, “[w]hen the state legislature vests the right to vote for president in its people, the right to vote as the legislature has prescribed is fundamental; and one source of its fundamental nature lies in the equal weight accorded to each vote and the equal dignity owed to each voter.” Bush v. Gore.

The evidence shows not only that respondents failed to administer the November 3, 2020 election in compliance with the manner prescribed by the Georgia legislature in the Georgia Election Code, but that [Georgia officials] through their policies, practices and procedures departed from the Georgia Election Code and thereby left the door wide open for schemes and artifices to fraudulently and illegally manipulate the vote count to make certain the election of Biden as president of the United States.
This conduct violated the rights of petitioners as presidential electors to a constitutional election under the Elections and Electors, Equal Protection, and Due Process clauses.
As noted by L&C, Powell’s filing was “styled as an ’emergency writ of injunction’ that aims to force various Georgia officials ‘to de-certify the results of the November 3, 2020, general election and to enjoin them from taking any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election or permit Georgia’s presidential electors to cast their votes for [Joe] Biden in the Electoral College.’”
The chances of the Supreme Court buying Powell’s latest argument are equal to those of a proverbial snowball — “Kraken” and “biblical” notwithstanding.
With all eyes on the Texas v. Pennsylvania, et al., attorney Lin Wood’s Thursday tweet announcing that his lawsuit alleging Georgia voter fraud case had been docketed by SCOTUS was lost in the shuffle.
Finally docketed in US Supreme Court!https://t.co/Dpay3svFwP
