[Ed. Note: The short answer is… ‘no.’]

THE 2020 presidential election has taken another twist, with potentially major implications for the outcome.
As you probably know by now, Texas has sued the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, alleging that they enacted unconstitutional changes to their election laws ahead of the 2020 election.
By making these changes, the Texas suit accuses these states of devaluing the votes of citizens in its own and other states. Here’s Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton:
By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections. Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.
17 other states have joined the Texas lawsuit. Well, this morning, the Supreme Court ordered Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin to respond to the Texas lawsuit by 3:00 this afternoon.
