Yesterday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed out a lawsuit from Members of Congress challenging the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's vote-by-mail system.
The lawsuit was completely legitimate. Article VII Section 14 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution states that
"The Legislature shall, by general law, provide a manner in which, and the time and place at which, qualified electors who may, on the occurrence of any election, be absent from the municipality of their residence, because their duties, occupation or business require them to be elsewhere or who, on the occurrence of any election, are unable to attend at their proper polling places because of illness or physical disability or who will not attend a polling place because of the observance of a religious holiday or who cannot vote because of election day duties, in the case of a county employee, may vote, and for the return and canvass of their votes in the election district in which they respectively reside."
As you can see, the Pennsylvania Constitution deliberately limits the reasons that voters can use to vote by an absentee ballot. Last year, Pennsylvania's legislature set about to create no-excuse mail-in voting. Except, instead of amending the constitution as would be required, the legislature passed Act 77, a simple statute.
The result is that hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots were cast in Pennsylvania this year in violation of the state's Constitution.
A Commonwealth Court judge agreed with the Republicans this week and ordered the state to halt its certification. Democrats appealed to Pennsylvania's highest court and just yesterday, the State Supreme Court announced that they were throwing out the lawsuit.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court did not claim that the election was constitutional. In fact, they refused to rule on the merits at all. Instead, the PA Supreme Court ruled that Republicans had waited too long to file a challenge and it was too late…
Here is the real kicker, though. In order to file suit, plaintiffs need to prove they have standing, meaning that they have been personally harmed. If there has not been any articulable harm, then a lawsuit must be thrown out because plaintiffs lack standing.
Had Rep. Mike Kelly, lead plaintiff on the lawsuit, tried to file before the election, it would have been dismissed for lack of standing. You can't claim to be harmed by an election that hasn't happened yet…
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is now saying that it is too late to prevent an unconstitutional election from being certified. They are claiming that if an unconstitutional law is allowed to remain on the books for long enough, then it somehow becomes protected. This is ludicrous.
Pennsylvania's election violated the state's constitution and now, Democrats are rushing to certify the results before the United States Supreme Court can stop them…
You MUST stop them!
The Pennsylvania Legislature, run by Republicans, is now preparing to challenge the state's official results. They plan to pass a resolution declaring President Trump the winner.
When both slates of Electoral College electors reach Congress, it will be up to the House and Senate to decide who is the legitimate winner of Pennsylvania.
The same process is now also playing out in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
But the GOP is now refusing to fight. In Michigan, as we reported yesterday, State Senator Matt Hall (R) is blocking a voter fraud hearing from being held on Tuesday. In Congress, cowards like Mitt Romney are proclaiming Joe Biden the winner and promising to do whatever it takes to ensure he is sworn in as the 46th President.
We can stop this treachery, but only if you get loud right now!
Stop the steal!
