The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a state featuring the Liberty Bell, full of hard-working factory and energy workers, traditional values, and the home of Rocky.
Philadelphia, the former city of brotherly love, where brave men put their signatures on the Declaration Of Independence, in a building named, Independence Hall.
As many declining democratic controlled cities, crime and poverty have taken over parts of their growing communities, with Philadelphia resembling Gotham city from the Batman series.
The state’s very liberal governor and secretary of state made controversial changes to state election laws right before the elections, which are now being challenged by the Trump campaign as illegal.
Today a judge ruled in favor of a lawsuit brought the Trump campaign.
On Friday they are scheduled to have a hearing over thousands of ballots that they claim were improperly counted despite lacking required information.
And of most importance, the campaign awaits action from the Supreme Court regarding whether the Pennsylvania Supreme Court acted properly in granting the three-day extension for accepting mail-in ballots.
A Pennsylvania judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign Thursday, ordering that the state may not count ballots where the voters needed to provide proof of identification and failed to do so by Nov. 9.
State law said that voters have until six days after the election — this year that was Nov. 9 — to cure problems regarding a lack of proof of identification. After the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted three days after Election Day, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar submitted guidance that said proof of identification could be provided up until Nov. 12, which is six days from the ballot acceptance deadline. That guidance was issued two days before Election Day.
“[T]he Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020, guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline … for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt said in a court order.
