"About 980 votes separated Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidates Mehmet Oz and David McCormick as of Monday night, and even though their primary race will almost certainly head to a mandatory recount, the fight for every vote is already underway. And it's getting contentious. When it became clear the May 17 primary was going down to the wire, both campaigns lawyered up. On Monday night McCormick, who is trailing by less than 0.1 percentage point, filed a lawsuit to compel Pennsylvania's 67 counties to count mail-in ballots that arrived on time but don't have the required handwritten date on the outside of the envelope. A federal appellate court ruled Friday that such undated Pennsylvania ballots should be counted, regardless of state law.
The RNC and state GOP "are intervening against McCormick in his suit over undated ballots," New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported. "The ballots they want to throw out were all proper, legally cast votes, submitted on time," liberal commentator Ron Filipkowski tweeted -- "the GOP wants to disenfranchise their own voters" Former GOP Senate staffer Chris Hansen tweeted, "To be clear, Dave McCormick is pursuing a legal strategy that could set a dangerous legal precedent in Pennsylvania for years to come and cost the GOP general elections, including the presidency,"
Why is McCormick trying to get mail-in ballots counted?? I distinctly remember him being against mail-in ballots with regards to the 2020 election - but now, he is resorting to Democrat tactics by trying to illegally count mail-in ballots?? Mail in ballots that as far as we know, were shipped in by Antifa, North Korea, who knows...who is McCormick working for? Why is he not being criminally investigated for election fraud?? And how are the judges that are allowing these fraudulent ballots to be counted against state law, how are they not disbarred by now? The 3rd District US Court Of Appeals are basically under the control of the Dems....why is this not a bigger story?
