As election challenges head to court, we’ve got updates from Washington, D.C.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed the election legal challenges heading to court. Several lawsuits have already been filed and there will be additional lawsuits filed over the next several days.
There are filings out of Michigan, and several in Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona. There’s more to come. This is just to beginning. I would encourage you to avoid feeling like you are on pins and needles every moment. This is a process and there is still plenty of time to go.
My dad, Jay Sekulow, is in Washington, D.C. and he gave us an update of what’s going on:
I understand the anxiety and the frustration but these are not going to be decisions that come down in the next two or three days that are going to end this one way or another or overturn this. What you have right now, first of all, the electors have not met. The Electoral College has not met so all of these controversies that you are seeing are what we call live controversies.
Now on Friday, in my outside private capacity as the President’s attorney, we went to the Supreme Court and asked the Court to issue a directive, an order, saying you’ve got to segregate these ballots in Pennsylvania. That’s a have-to. Number two, and equally important, you have to make sure that those votes, although counted, these ballots that came in late are not added to the general totals. So far, I will say, the order has stayed in place. Justice Alito issued it. Now it has been referred to the entire Court. So the question will be what the entire Court does with this in the days ahead. This was a very important, very significant first step in the legal process. It’s not the end of the legal process. It’s the very beginning of the Supreme Court side of this.
ACLJ Senior Counsel Andy Ekonomou added the following:
The reason it went to Justice Alito, for those of you who don’t know, he’s the Circuit Justice that handles matters that come out of the 3rd Circuit. Pennsylvania is in the 3rd Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals. So requests for emergency action, for administrative stays go to the circuit justice and therefore it went to Justice Alito. Justice Alito ordered the segregation of the ballots. That was an important first step, a critical first step, because it sets the ground work for the future litigation.
That’s the step that if you don’t get it, then you’re case is in real trouble. As always, we’ll keep you updated on the latest developments in this legal phase of the presidential election.

Last night, the sweeping voting rights bill known as the “For the People Act (H.R. 1 in the House and S. 1 in the Senate) was blocked in the Senate .

Today, the Senate is going to vote on an immensely dangerous piece of proposed legislation that would jeopardize the integrity of our elections. We’ve told you what the “For the People Act” (H.R. 1 in the House and S. 1 in the Senate) entails and the consequences that would come with it. Even with...
As we’ve discussed and written previously, the majorities in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate are currently attempting to federalize control of elections in the United States. This painfully unconstitutional effort comes in the form of the not-so-aptly-named “For the People Act” (H.R. 1 in the U.S.
Just weeks ago, Senator Joe Manchin was opposed to H.R. 1 and was outspokenly opposed to getting rid of the filibuster. Now, Sen. Manchin has cracked under the pressure of his colleagues and is going forward with supporting a federal takeover of our elections and removing the filibuster. He has...
