WASHINGTON DC — Michigan Representative Bill Huizenga talked candidly in front of the US Supreme Court on supporting the a Texas lawsuit on results of the election.

The update on his decision was live on his Facebook page.

"I’ve read through the Texas Lawsuit, the relevant areas that they have enumerated what happened in Michigan and then felt very comfortable with this Amicus Brief." Huizenga said.

“I signed on with this Amicus Brief so that the folks of Michigan can have assurance that their concerns are being looked at, that they’re being explored that they’re being taken seriously and that we can move on." Said Huizenga. "I’m hoping that this is going to be able to bring certainty to what the election result is.”

The brief lists 106 US Representatives, including 4 from Michigan, who support the lawsuit.

“Jack Bergman, Tim Walberg, John Moolenaar and myself all signed on to this brief and we are hoping this will bring some clarity.”

These are questions of great public importance that warrant this Court’s attention.
US Supreme Court Case; State of Texas v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of Georgia, State of Michigan, and State of Wisconsin.

The lawsuit cites a number of incidents in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Georgia where the election results have been questioned, saying the allegations "raise serious concerns relating to election integrity and public confidence in elections. These are questions of great public importance that warrant this Court’s attention."

Huizenga did point out that spot checks in Allegan and Kent counties of districts using the Dominion equipment were "Spot-on"; all hand re-counts matched what was originally reported. He says the incident in Antrim County is believed to be human error, but a judge there has ordered a forensic audit of the machinery to be sure.

“I think this is the right thing to do for America because of the number of folks who are having questions about their vote integrity and what’s been going on” Huizenga said.

According to the Representative from Michigan's 2nd district, Texas is not looking for a re-vote, but is looking for those state's legislators to decide who would move forward in the Electoral College vote. He also noted Al Gore did not concede the 2000 election until he lost twice in the US Supreme Court and he supports President Trump in withholding concession of the election.
