Texas Bar Ethics Complaint Seeks To Punish Ted Cruz For Attempt To Overturn 2020 Election

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is the target of a Texas Bar Association complaint over his role in attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

A group of lawyers filed the complaint, asking the State Bar of Texas to take action against Cruz for his outsized role in undermining voters.

The lawyers from the 65 Project, an organization aimed at prosecuting those involved in attempting to overturn the election, filed an ethics complaint to the board.

They cited Cruz’s role in seeking to disregard absentee ballots, his false claims about voter fraud and his attempt to stop states from appointing electors. “Mr. Cruz knew that the allegations he was echoing had already been reviewed and rejected by courts,” the complaint says. “And he knew that claims of voter fraud or the election being stolen were false.”

Cruz was involved with representing Pennsylvania Republicans who tried to reject nearly all absentee ballots after Donald Trump’s false claims about voter fraud.

The group did not specify what punishments they wanted for Cruz, but their complaint echoes a similar complaint that got Rudy Giuliani‘s law license revoked.

The filing argues that Cruz pursued frivolous and false claims, all of which were denied by the Texas Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.

The complaint against Cruz is one in a group of many other high-profile complaints.

In the past, the State Bar of Texas sued Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) for professional misconduct for his lawsuit against the 2020 presidential election.
