Opinion: Was the Texas-led lawsuit frivolous?

Is there a substantial body of evidence?

A few days ago, Gov. Mike Dunleavy announced support for a lawsuit that would overturn the results of the 2020 United States Presidential Election in four states.

He referred to voter fraud that must be investigated by the Supreme Court. Presumably he would not have made such a claim in the absence of a fairly solid body of evidence of fraud. Yet he has not disclosed to Alaskans what exactly that evidence is. I believe he has an obligation to do so. Not volunteering this information should prompt a public records request to the governor’s office seeking all evidence relied upon by the state in the decision to support the Texas lawsuit challenging the presidential election in the U.S. Supreme Court.

I believe that if Dunleavy cannot do this, or if a substantial body of evidence does not exist, Alaskans should pursue an appropriate response.
