BREAKING: PA Judge Rules State Election Unconstitutional

Pennsylvania trial court Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in an opinion late Friday which upholds her decision to delay the Pennsylvania certification process that the state election process was likely unconstitutional.

Petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed on the merits because petitioners have asserted the Constitution does not provide a mechanism for the legislature to allow for expansion of absentee voting without a constitutional amendment,” McCullough wrote.

Lawmakers in Pennsylvania released a memo on Friday, advising that they will soon introduce a resolution which accuses the state government of bypassing the legislature’s constitutional power to alter the outcome of the election. The resolution will provide a mechanism for the legislature to choose alternate electors who will cast the state’s vote for president.

Earlier this week, McCullough ordered Pennsylvania to halt the certification process of the state’s election results.

The move came after Pennsylvania announced it had certified the results of the election on Tuesday. Republican plaintiffs requested an emergency injunction having argued that the state should not have acted so fast.

The Republican lawmakers sued in Pennsylvania court arguing that the state legislature’s mail-in voting law, Act 77, violated the state’s constitution.
