Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall says a ruling by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to allow mail-in ballots to be accepted three days after Election Day is a ''classic example of an activist court, attempting to not only serve as judiciary but also as a quasi-legislature.''
''That’s not the way the system works,'' Marshall said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s ''American Agenda.''
''This is truly a case about the separation of powers and it’s something that’s far more important than just simply this election. If we don’t challenge what’s going on in Pennsylvania now then we’re going to see this occur in future elections coming forward.
''So it’s important for us and for my other colleagues to be involved in this case, to be able to stand up not only for what the Constitution requires but to also ensure to our constituents in our own states (that they) understand that elections are being handled fairly for the two offices that control this entire country and that’s the office of the president and the vice president.''
Marshall and nine attorneys general from other states have filed an amicus brief in the GOP lawsuit challenging the extension, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene and reverse the decision.
The suit is one of several legal challenges the Trump campaign is bringing to Pennsylvania over the 2020 presidential election.
