Finally, a judge who considered the plain language of the Constitution rules in favor of the Trump administration.
After several defeats in Pennsylvania, Trump’s team argued that the PA Governor and Secretary of State did not have the authority to extend the mail-in ballot deadline to 3 days after the election date set by the PA state legislature of November 3rd. All ballots including mail-in are required by state law to be in by the close of election day, period.
Tonight Pennsylvania Judge Patricia A. McCullough ruled that the Pennsylvania preliminary ELECTION CERTIFICATION injunction was PROPERLY ISSUED and should be upheld.
McCullough added this, “Additionally, petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed.”
Today’s ruling follows up on the order Judge McCullough issued on Wednesday.
HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — A Pennsylvania appeals court judge, Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough, ordered state officials on Wednesday to halt any further steps toward certifying election results, a day after Gov. Tom Wolf said he had certified Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election in Pennsylvania.
Judge McCullough issued the order and set a hearing for Friday. It wasn’t immediately clear if she intended to hold up the certification of state and local contests on the ballot or interrupt the scheduled Dec. 14 meeting of the state’s 20 electors.
Twitter followers were quick to announce the beaking news.
