President Trump’s legal team scored another victory major legal in Pennsylvania as he fights to ensure that the results of last week’s election are legitimate.
The Pennsylvania Secretary of State, Kathy Boockvar, a partisan hack of the Democrat Party, changed election law two days before the election, extending the deadline to “cure” ballots by three more days until November 12th, and a Pennsylvania court just ruled in favor of the Trump campaign’s legal challenge of her actions.
Judge says “no”
According to Just the News, “Existing Pennsylvania law states voters have until six days after the election – in this case, Nov. 9 – to “cure” problems with a ballot, including a lack of identification.”
The Trump campaign and the RNC sued after election day, arguing that Boockvar did not have the authority to extend the deadline, and the judge agreed.
Appellate court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt explained her decision in favor of the Trump campaign despite pressure from the left to cave to a Biden presidency.
[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,” the decision read.
Judge Leavitt ordered that the “uncured” ballots be “segregated” or removed from the final vote tally.
“Accordingly, the court hereby orders the respondents County Board of Elections are enjoined from counting any ballots that have been segregated pursuant to Paragraph 1 of this court’s order dated November 5, 2020, granting a special injunction,” Leavitt declared.
The battle for Pennsylvania continues
Earlier, on another front in the battle for Pennsylvania, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered Pennsylvania to segregate and count separately mail-in ballots that arrived after 8 pm on November 3rd.
Constitutional attorney Alan Dershowitz believes the Supreme Court would agree to hear a case against Pennsylvania’s election if those sequestered votes comprise a large enough number to change the results in that state.
Dershowitz explained to Breitbart News: “The Supreme Court will take the case only if it would make a difference, only if the plaintiffs — the Republicans — can show that the number of disputed ballots that were subject to sequestration by Justice Alito’s decision exceeds the difference between the winning margin and the losing margin.”
At the time of this publication, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has a more than 50,000 vote lead over President Trump in Pennsylvania.
