Pennsylvania has been stopped from certifying their election results. Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough ordered the state to not take any further steps in certifying the election results until both parties are heard on November 27th.

The judge’s decision would probably upset the Democrats who do not want the election process to be scrutinized closely.

Judge Patricia McCullough wrote:

“To the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, respondents are preliminarily enjoined from doing so, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday.”

“Respondents are preliminarily enjoined from certifying the remaining results of the election, pending the evidentiary hearing.”

The plaintiffs which include Republican lawmakers and candidates was filed against Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, and the Pennsylvania General Assembly. It alleges that they violated vote-by-mail statute—Act 77. They say it is a direct violation of the Pennsylvania constitution and can only be implemented by amending the constitution.

The lawsuit states:

“Act 77 is the most expansive and fundamental change to the Pennsylvania voting code, implemented illegally, to date.”

“As with prior historical attempts to illegally expand mail-in voting by statute, which have been struck down going as far back as the Military Absentee Ballot Act of 1839, Act 77 is another illegal attempt to override the limitations on absentee voting prescribed in the Pennsylvania Constitution, without first following the necessary procedure to amend the constitution to allow for the expansion.”

The lawsuit was filed by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, and Pennsylvania House of Representatives candidate Wanda Logan. The Epoch Times requested a statement from Gov Tom Wolf’s office but none was forthcoming. They argued there was no reason to certify so quickly and noted that they certified the 2016 vote on December 12th.

The plaintiffs wrote:

“It appears that respondents’ actions may have been accelerated in response to the application for emergency relief … in an effort to preclude any remedial action by this court faster than this court was able to evaluate the application for emergency relief and the answers to it.”

  • Observation: All states that changed their voting laws Without authorization from their legislature are violating the Constitution! Why aren’t the Trump team lawyers bringing this to the appropriate jurisdictions ASAP? The Supreme Court would address this by Not allowing these illegal mail-in votes – problem resolved for This election.

    • If they were all violating the Constitution why didn’t the Trump team lawyers bring their case BEFORE the election?

      Not right to deny these people their vote, in the absence of fraud.

      • Are you stupid or abnormal, when have you seen a crime report before committing it? The court ordered an electoral procedure, they breached it and then, only after they breached, the lawyers sued, not before.

      • They did bring an earlier case, but it was not ripe for litigation where no harm had been done yet. It’s a legal principle where you can only bring an action against someone if a harm occurred or would likely occur. Earlier, the voting cert was not in play. This is where the being a lawyer allows you to navigate the field of litigation where there are many technical rules and procedures. Now, however, a certificate was going to be signed, and the plaintiff’s showed they would be irreparably harmed if said cert was signed without hearing the evidence which is likely to succeed. And this time judge agreed there was strong likelihood of harm based on the evidence supporting that the cert should not be signed.

  • The whole world is watching, I’m from Canada & I have over 5,000 followers watching this 2020 Election in the U.S.A. we can see from afar that there is TOO MUCH EVIDENCE! and we all hope the Judicial System in America makes an EXAMPLE for the rest of the World! Be our Role Model! Do the right thing! for our children & our children’s children!
    Have a nice Thanksgiving in America

      • Please leave your phone alone.
        Just stay in your parents basement smoking your dope and playing with your video games and yes playing with yourself too, live the world up to real adults to deal with. Thank you!

    • Stop encouraging my country to tru against it’s free an dfair election. Noone carea ho many people are following you. Us americans voted for the president and sorry if you don’t like it but he’s our president. I say you come here and see how great it’s gonna be. Otherwis keep your treasonous ideas to your own country. Your lucky to have Trudeau. Try living with trump for 4 years. You wouldnt be singing the aame tune honey

      • I’m Canadian also, and please don’t hold those other Canucks comments against us!
        ANY critical thinking human will deduce that the only attempted fraud brought upon your election was brought by tRumps unscrupulous tactics, from hiring deJoy to cripple the mail system, to GOP electors summoned to the WH to throw out certain counties (black) votes! This sham kangaroo court will amount to simply more erosion of a fragile democratic system that was once envied by the world. We (the majority) of Intelligent Canadians feel for you…and support your President elect BIDEN and VP elect HARRIS!

  • At least someone is willing to listen. This judge can set the tone. If there is an argument people will get disenfranchised, produce those people who submitted ballots and vett them.
    You can not enfranchise someone when they really never obtained that of which you claim.
    However, there is 73 million legal votes, if not more, that would be disenfranchise if a fraudulent election was allowed to stand. Illegal votes do not have standing because the vote is not representative of any legal vote caster.

  • This is how a democracy collipsed. This is a power collipsed. A judge want to play during 24h. A woman…yes I say… again a woman. God bless the dead

    • Great!!! Stay in your parents basement, smoking your dope and playing your video games. Let us mature adults take care of things in the real world. Thank you!

      • Dealoit and Retionlook at the same comment, except the change at the end. Who’s the one smoking dope in their parents basement? Trump’s sheep!

      • Wow say that one more time please lol. You’re in a cult. Sorry to burst that bubble for ya. Repeating the same thing might make you feel better but doesn’t make it true. Us adults already took care of things by voting trump out of office. What more should we do mr.smart man? Hahah jeez get over it your president is biden. Sorry

  • So lets see – 31 cases tossed so far because there has been NO EVIDENCE of voter fraud. Just bogus claims, irrational claims.

    Now we are down to saying the government acted improperly by letting people vote? If they didn’t like how the vote was being conducted they should have made this case BEFORE the election!

    Now they are just denying people their vote, and there could be nothing LESS PATRIOTIC than that! Bogus!

    • You’re a little slow, aren’t you? The Trump campaign has not filed 31 cases. And losing cases in lower level courts full of democrats shill judges is how you get it to the Supreme Court where Trump has 3 scoops. Get used to this number : 5-4. Biden will never get out of his basement. I chuckle at you.

  • This is amazing news. Thank you for being unbias and following the constitution laws. It is very important we are confident the election process was conducted fairly. A lot of us agree it was not. There is so much going on and so many high officials against our president that we the people are certain the election was rigged. Please make justice!!! Americans deserve it!
