THROW ‘EM OUT: PA judge sides with Trump campaign, orders ballots with no proof of ID be discarded

PA Secretary of State issued directive in all 67 counties before Election Day allowing voters missing ID to cure their mail-in ballots until November 12

The Trump campaign secured a second win in Pennsylvania on Thursday after a judge ruled that ballots with outstanding proof of identification beyond six days post-election should not be counted. 

Pennsylvania law outlines this very clearly.

While this may seem obvious, even self-explanatory, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar actually issued a directive in all 67 counties, right before Election Day, that allowed voters missing proof of identification to cure their mail-in ballots until November 12. 

In some states, voters are provided an opportunity to “cure” or fix their ballot if problems – like a missing signature – occur, according to the Associated Press.

Very suspicious. 

The judge agreed with the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee that Boockvar did not have legal grounds, “lacked statutory authority” to implement a change in the identification deadline because state law did not permit it. 

“[T]he Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020 guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline…for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt wrote. 

Boockvar’s directive was issued just after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted up to three days after the election, which did not fly with the Trump campaign. 

A lawsuit by the Trump campaign challenging that ruling is pending petition in the Supreme Court, the campaign claiming that the decision to accept mail-in ballots so late goes against state law. 

A hearing is scheduled for Friday to determine if “over thousands of ballots” missing crucial information were incorrectly counted by election officials in the Keystone State.

    Who will be doing the recount? How does that work to be credible? Does one party check it and then the other party verify at the same time? I have very little trust

    Of course the people who changed the law illegally are the first to complain when it is challenged legally. Had they not changed the law 71 million people might have had a little more faith in what has now become the greatest fraud spectacle the free world has ever witnessed.

    There is a need for clean voter rolls and voter ID laws in all 50 states. States should be required to clean their voter rolls before every election whether it’s mid-term or National…

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Published

Georgia Voting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat. 

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
