Although the mainstream media has called the 2020 election for former Vice President Joe Biden, votes are still being counted and President Donald Trump is committed to not conceding until allegations of voter fraud have been thoroughly investigated and taken to court.
Amid reports of voter fraud across the country, the Pennsylvania Republican Party has alleged that at least 840 ballots were cast for dead people in the state, Breitbart reported Saturday.
The party tweeted a link to a state government website showing the birthdays of people who voted on Election Day.
The list of voters had 840 who were 101 years or older, including 45 people who were born in the 1800s, and 39 of whom lived through the Civil War.
Lawsuit filed over alleged fraud
The revelations come in the midst of a lawsuit filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) that contends some 21,000 deceased individuals are still registered to vote in the Keystone State, as Breitbart reported.
“As of October 7, 2020, at least 9,212 registrants have been dead for at least five years, at least 1,990 registrants have been dead for at least ten years, and at least 197 registrants have been dead for at least twenty years,” Breitbart quoted the group as saying.
The report added: “Pennsylvania still left the names of more than 21,000 dead individuals on the voter rolls less than a month before one of the most consequential general elections for federal officeholders in many years.”
Mistakes magnified with mail-in voting
It’s a case that PILF president J. Christian Adams says “isn’t complicated.”
“For nearly a year, we’ve been offering specific data on deceased registrants to Pennsylvania officials for proper handling ahead of what was expected to be a tight outcome on Election Day,” Adams contended in a statement, according to Breitbart.
He went on: “When you push mail voting, your voter list maintenance mistakes made years ago will come back to haunt in the form of unnecessary recipients and nagging questions about unreturned or outstanding ballots.”
Dead people voting isn’t the only controversy in Pennsylvania. The Trump campaign is also planning to challenge a ruling from the state’s Supreme Court that allowed votes to be counted even if they arrived after election day without a postmark.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito issued an order requiring that Pennsylvania counties segregate the late ballots pending further rulings, Fox News reported Friday.
