The investigation of voter fraud in Pennsylvania is essential in determining who actually won the presidential election.
As I wrote recently, the voting process in Pennsylvania is a mess. https://datechguyblog.com/2020/10/27/the-pennsylvania-chaos/
The Democrats used a variety of ways to stop Trump from winning the state.
For example, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, declared Biden the winner of the Keystone State BEFORE votes had been counted.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which is also dominated by Democrats, extended the deadline for counting mail-in ballots. Votes couldn’t be challenged even if signatures didn’t look right.
In Philadelphia, the city held back votes on election night in an act reminiscent of the 1960 election in Chicago when Mayor Richard J. Daley held back votes–many from people long dead–that helped JFK win the presidential race.
Vote counters in Philly kept poll watchers out of the buildings and erected screens to keep outsiders from seeing what was going.
Although the city had introduced a high-tech computer system to count votes, it took FOUR days to wrangle enough ballots to put Biden in the lead.
The critical battle will occur in the Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar, a case joined by 10 attorneys general and the Trump campaign.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled before the election that mail-in ballots received within three days after the official vote would be counted. The ruling overturned a state statute that required the ballots to be received by election day.
What’s the importance of the decision? On election night, Trump was leading by several hundred thousand votes.
Within three days, Biden was ahead.
How many of those Biden votes came in AFTER it looked Trump was going to win?
So far, the U.S. Supreme Court has declined to get involved by a tie vote BEFORE Justice Amy Coney Barret was confirmed.
Last Friday, Pennsylvania Republicans renewed their request in a slightly different form. They sought an injunction to require the country board to segregate the late-arriving ballots and not count them.
Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency applications from the geographic area that includes Pennsylvania, issued a ruling to force the segregation of late ballots. He wanted the full court to decide whether to count the votes.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to hear a Republican appeal to allow greater access to vote counting in Philadelphia. Again, that case may end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
With a Biden margin of roughly 50,000 votes out of nearly seven million cast, it’s time to slow down the victory parade of the Democrats to see what actually happened in Pennsylvania.
