Pennsylvania’s WASHINGTON – GOP has filed an emergency order with the US Supreme Court in an effort to prevent state officials from taking any action on mail ballots received after Election Day when Joe Biden approached the White House.
The document filed Friday afternoon was the latest in a legal struggle after Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court last month authorized a three-day extension for mail-in counting – a decision SCOTUS uphold. .
With Democrat Joe Biden currently leading in Pennsylvania, retreating after outstripping President Trump 600,000 votes, the state’s GOP has filed a petition with the Supreme Court.
Pennsylvania Secretary of State ordered late ballots to be segregated until further notice, but Republicans claimed there was no way to know if all 67 county electoral councils would do so.
“In short, a warrant from the Court is very much needed,” said the lawsuit.
“So so far, a total of 25 Pennsylvania county electoral councils have not said whether they will separate the late ballots,” it continued.
“If the county’s electoral councils count and do not split late ballots, the Tribunal may not be able to correct election results contaminated by voted or mailed ballots. The post office is illegal and on time. ”
The Republicans and the president’s re-election campaign are preparing to make a massive legal effort to combat the counting of votes in various states where Biden is a narrow lead.
As of Friday night, the former vice president took the lead in the Electoral College, 264-214, according to Fox News and the AP called Arizona for Biden, and took the lead in most of the key swing states where the counting of votes continued. profanity.
Republicans, including President Trump, support the challenge of the Pennsylvania court’s ruling, arguing that the three-day extension violates election law that says Election Day is the first Tuesday. the first Monday of November.
The president’s re-election campaign declared that the 2020 race was far from over, filing a mass lawsuit, and on Friday the Republican National Committee announced it would send lawyers to Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona.
RNC President Ronna McDaniel accused the media of trying to announce the race was over when he previously took the lead in states like Georgia with around 4,000 votes.
“It’s crazy for us that the mainstream media calls a race like Arizona for Biden when our websites still have enough votes to win. The profit right now is 47,000 votes, ”she said, hitting Fox News on the controversial appeal in Arizona.
“We cannot let this happen, and we will fight every rule until the last minute, because every voter deserves to count their vote and they deserve to know whether the irregularities are. This means fraud or not, and we have to figure this out, “she said.
Trump and president’s campaign has repeatedly stated that the election is being “stolen” from them and the popular “fraud” is the reason why they tracked Biden without providing any evidence. Any specifics to support their claims.
