Today, Pennsylvania’s Republican Congressional Delegation issued an open letter to voice their aggregate worries over the Commonwealth’s management of the General Election to Governor Tom Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, and Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar.
In this joint letter, Congressmen Glenn Thompson, Mike Kelly, Dan Meuser, John Joyce, Scott Perry and Lloyd Smucker stated that the Commonwealth’s electoral system has been challenged by the anomaly including late directions given to the counties just before the election night, the Attorney General running for reelection while refereeing with a vested individual interest, as well as volunteer poll watchers being deprived of their access to fulfill their duties. In an interview with Newsmax, Trey Trainor, Chair of the Federal Election Commission, also raised his concern over poll watchers’ unable to have “meaningful access” in supervising ballot counting in states like Pennsylvania.
Congressmen also pointed out that Pennsylvania’s administration failed to provide enough evidence to show it’s following the temporary order by United States Supreme Court Justice Alito to separate ballots came in after 8 p.m. on election day.
Congressmen Thompson and colleagues further stressed that Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, Josh Shapiro’s recent views indicated that he has not be able to stay impartial given the conflict of interest.
The six Congressmen that signed on this letter were troubled by the actions of Pennsylvania administration and believed that America’s democracy and public trust on government are at stake.
Congressman Kelly posted today on his website stating that “In our representative republic, it is not the media who declares the winner of elections. Right now, the Trump Campaign is engaged in several court cases to determine the integrity of the vote in multiple states. None of those states have officially certified their vote counts, and investigations into voting irregularities are ongoing. The winner of the election will be determined by the law, not media projections.”
