Pennsylvania GOP Approves Subpoenas in Election Probe

Tom Wolf via Wikimedia Commons

Pennsylvania has taken a step towards conducting an Arizona-style election probe as the PA state senate authorized subpoenas for the personal information of voters in the 2020 presidential election.

The Hill reports:

The state Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee voted to authorize 17 subpoenas, seeking information from Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) administration that includes partial Social Security numbers, driver’s license information, how each voter cast a ballot and when those voters last cast a ballot.

The move is the latest step toward what Pennsylvania Republicans call a “forensic audit” into the 2020 election results, part of a broader trend of Republican-controlled legislatures seeking to undermine faith and confidence in the results of the election that Donald Trump lost to President Biden.

In a statement, Wolf condemned what he said was a Republican effort to undermine confidence in the American electoral system, at a cost of millions of taxpayer dollars.

“Let’s be very clear, this information request is merely another step to undermine democracy, confidence in our elections and to capitulate to Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. It is a direct continuation of the same lies that resulted in the attack on the Capitol, and that have done so much to destabilize our political institutions over the ten months since last year’s election,” Wolf said. “We badly need Republicans to take election security seriously and stop playing games for political gain.”

Wolf says his office plans to fight the subpoenas in court.

Don’t you ever be ashamed Anthony for living during these times! You are on the side of righteousness and truth! Those evil people in Washington D.C. are the evil doers and it will be their butts that will be kicked from here to eternity!

As long as you always stand up for what is truthful and right, there is nothing to be ashamed of! God sees ALL — even those that try to usurp our Freedom and it will be those twisted individuals who will fall under His Holy Hand!

YOU have done nothing wrong Anthony! God knows who the real evil parties really are…and they will suffer for their crimes!
God Bless You Anthony and every God loving American who the present leader and his administration are refusing to protect and serve these people!

Biden’s time in the Oval Office will be short because he is incompetent and unable to lead our Nation! It’s time for the REAL WINNER of our 2020 Election to take over, DJT!

Let’s see how quickly Congress acts to remove that old fraud and offers that position to President Trump! He is the only one capable of fixing the mess Biden has made of the U.S. and the World! Please say Prayers Anthony that DJT is asked to step back into our Presidency and he accepts! America needs him now more than ever!

Anybody that thinks everyone should vote by mail only wants one thing “CORRUPTION”. No one in California really believes Newsom won in the recall, Nancy was up to her VOTER FRAUD WAYS. People going to the voting polls only to be turned away with the poll worker saying they already voted. duggie alseep in his car with over 300 ballots but no charges were filed and they refuse to give his name out…You really think Newsom won in his recall AND I will gladly get in your face and call “you a liar”

I agree. I am from California and guess what happened in the recall? We received our ballots and lo and behold our HOME ADDRESS was boldly printed on the back of our return envelopes! I had my niece take a picture of it. just in case. I am 81 years old and first voted in 1960 (had to be 21 years old to vote then). I have NEVER seen an address on any voter return envelope and I have voted in every election since 1960. Well one thing I know we did NOT mail them in. My nieces, grand nephew and I waited until election day and took them down to the polling place which just happens to be a church.

I have been voting by mail for over twenty years.
My ballot will be rejected if the envelope does not have my return address as listed on the voter rolls.
In my town mail in votes are usually 80+% of the turnout.
Technology will replace polling places.
I haven’t been in a bank in over 6 years.
No even for a new mortgage.

PA should follow Arizona’s lead, they found over 170 incidents of massive voter fraud….They have withheld over 700 million from Maricopa and Dominion voting machines will NEVER BE USED IN ARIZONA AGAIN. Dominion refuses to turn over their equipment that was used and are now in VIOLATION OF A SUBPOENA. Dominion stock is owned by Pig Pelosi, Feinstein, Newsom and you wonder why CALIFORNIA ELECTION ARE FRAUD….Right NANCY?????

Please quantify.
How many fraudulent votes were cast in AZ?
How many indictments have been issued?
There were 700 million fraudulent votes in Maricopa County?
Dominion voting machines will be used in AZ again.
That is up to each municipality.
The Dominion voting machines that the CyberNijaJokes f’d in Maricopa will be replaced.
The contract will go out to bid.
Of course.
It will go to lowest bidder who meets the spec.
Of course.

This govenor is worried about a measly few million dollars to save a state and nation from corrupt democrats, when they are holding America hostage for multi-trillions of dollars, for a biden, democrat + fauchi created pandemic, trillions for illegals welfare, trillions of taxpayer dollars classified military equipment and arms donations to the muslim terrorist, that cost 13 of our fine military men, women and children their lives and denied them the right, to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness with their families.
This does not include the millions of American Jobs lost because biden and democrats shut down the pipeline and also shut dowm business and factories due to their creation of the china virus.

Expect nothing less from a Democrat. Pass the buck and blame the Republicans for all the damage caused by the Democrats. We didn’t have any of the problems we now are facing when Trump was President. How is it all his fault all of a sudden? It’s not!!! It’s just a Democrat doing his job for which we will all eventually pay.

OK, Biden got 80 million votes, 14 million than Obama got and he did it from his basement. I am not suggesting that he did not get the votes, I don’t believe anybody , including Democrats believe that 80 million voters voted for Biden. He just got the votes. If the Democrat party really believes this election was without fraud they should be open to, demand, an investigation just to prove it wasn’t. That would shut up the Republicans.

In all my 70 years, I’ve never seen a party like the democrat party that was so hell bent on not wanting to clear the air of voter fraud! If, like you say, there was no voter fraud, then you should not have any problem with a forensic audit, right? You should be welcoming an audit to prove what you Dems have been saying for the last10 months! By the way, just disregard whatever Al Gore and Hillary Clinton had ever said about voter fraud when they lost an election.

Wolf can go suck a toad! He is very very AFRAID that evidence will prove just how CORRUPT AND IMMORAL THE DEMOCRATS REALLY ARE! It’s coming Wolf, sooner than you think!

What clueless demonrats like Wolf do not get — because they ARE NOT VISIONARIES — is that YES SOME VERY POWER HUNGRY DEMOCRATS OR ELITISTS DECIDED THEY DID NOT WANT TO DEAL WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, so they manipulated our 2020 Election so DJT would lose.

HOWEVER, those same clueless elitists did not see how many of our American population SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND WANT HIM BACK WHERE HE BELONGS IN THE WHITE HOUSE! So, now those Elitists AND CORRUPT DEMONRATS are in full panic mode because many Americans are not going to stop digging until every last corrupt individual who STOLE OUR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS CAUGHT AND TRIED FOR “TREASON”!

Yes, “TREASON” FOR MANIPULATING A FEDERAL ELECTION, forging ballots, the destruction of legal ballots, hacking voting machines and manipulating numbers, etc to steal the election from the candidate that LEGALLY WON THE PRESIDENCY — President Donald J Trump! I do believe that is a Treasonable offense!

Good luck to ALL SWINE (because there are many evil people involved in this BIGGEST SCAM OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EVER) offenders! Be glad you are not being tried by your Peers! You’d be hanging from the tallest tree until dead!
