Judge Throws Out Republican Lawsuit

A Federal Judge has thrown out a Lawsuit introduced by several State Republicans who were trying to remove Mail-in Ballots from Pennsylvania’s Election results. The Lawmakers claimed Act 77, the Bipartisan approved Law that created Universal Mail-in Voting, violated the State’s Constitution.

The Lawsuit, filed Saturday and led by Pittsburgh area Congressman Mike Kelly along with Congressional Candidate Sean Parnell, alleged that the provisions that allowed more than 2.5 million Pennsylvanians to Vote by mail, are Unconstitutional. They have called for Mail-in Ballots to not be Certified and for only “Legal Votes” to be Certified or for the Pennsylvania General Assembly to choose the Electors and compensate the legal costs of the Plaintiffs. Saturday Afternoon U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann turned down that request, clearing the way for Counties to move forward in Certifying the Election results by Monday.
