Pennsylvania lawmakers ask Congress to dispute Electoral votes
Several dozen members of the Pennsylvania state legislature are urging their congressional delegation to object to the Electoral College count when it is presented in January for confirmation, alleging Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and other officials have undermined the integrity of the election.
We the undersigned members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, urge you to object, and vote to sustain such objection, to the Electoral College votes received from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania during the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021,” they wrote.
Pennsylvania is one of the swing states in which President Trump had a huge lead after the polls closed. Then, in the overnight hours, vote “dumps” came in and were added that gave Joe Biden the lead. In Pennsylvani, Trump had a lead of about 700,000 votes with 65% reporting.
President Trump and his supporters are challenging the results in Pennsylvania and several other states.
The letter on Friday is addressed to Sens. Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, and Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick, Dwight Evans, Brendan Doyle, Madeleine Dean, Mary Gay Scanlon, Chrissy Houlahan, Susan Wild, Matthew Cartwright, Daniel Meuser, Scott Perry, Lloyd Smucker, Fred Keller, John Joyce, Guy Reschenthaler, Glenn Thompson, Mike Kelly, Conor Lamb and Michael Doyle Jr.
The lawmakers explained the legislature adopted changes to the election code, expanding voting access and adding safeguards.
