Nor should they. There's no reason to flip a state to Trump that he lost.If it's a question of State Law, it's not clear to me that there is a federal question for SCOTUS, further, October 31, 2019 is well over the 180 day line.PA Judge’s Stay Order On Certification Argues Mail-In Ballots Challenge “A Viable Claim”; Laches Doctrine May be In Play
The judge who ordered Pennsylvania to halt its election certification processes on Wednesday filed an opinion backing up the action yesterday. Judge Patricia McCullough argued that the plaintiffs’ argument that mass mail-in voting violates the state constitution is “viable,” and that a short delay won’t hurt while courts sort out the challenge.
Laches Doctrine comes into play in that this system has been used and not objected to, previously. That doesn't make it right, but, it does make it less likely that the unconstitutional mail in ballots will be thrown out. Your case is weakened if you keep quiet until you get an election result you don't like before objecting.
The Michigan Supreme Court had previously ruled that
"In the early case of Norton v Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425, 442; 6 S Ct 1121; 30 L Ed 178 (1886), the United States Supreme Court declared that " unconstitutional statute * * * confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed". This Court recognized the same principle in Briggs v Campbell, Wyant & Cannon Foundry Co, 379 Mich 160, 165; 150 NW2d 752 (1967), observing "an unconstitutional statutory provision though in form and name a law is from the beginning no law at all; * * * the invalidity thereof dates from the time of enactment * * * and * * * such a provision is at no time effective for any purpose".
Furthermore, Section 13(3) of Act 77, provides for a 180-day period in which constitutional challenges may be commenced,
Therefore the judges were acting as politicians in black robes consequently the sham ruling will be reversed by SCOTUS...
The PA supreme court is a Left Wing Political Court. I see no way that they are going to toss this election to the GOP Legislature.
Yeah.....as if being Republican these days means you're not part of the coup.Actually it was Republicans passed the law that they are attempting to declare unconstitutional.Clearly the PA Constitution was violated. Sad that liberal morons probably just got all those votes tossed, but what else can be done?
This whole affair has shown just how delicate Democracy is, when people like yourself seem so willing to abandon it.
What's weird is some people thinking that voting should be hard. Like waiting in line to vote longer than the line at the DMV.
Not entirely. You should do some research because the issue at play here is Act 77 which was passed on a bipartisan basis to make voting by mail easier.If its"easier" to vote, its easier to cheat. And the PA state legislature didn't change the rules, the partisan courts of PA did.

Rep. Mike Kelly is a tremendous Congressman, I am really glad I voted for him. Mr. Kelly is an ordinary fellow, a professional man who earned his livelihood as a salesman of preowned automobiles. An honest guy, not a lawyer at all.
With a provision:Republicans asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the battleground state.
Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly of northwestern Pennsylvania and the other plaintiffs are asking the high court to prevent the state from certifying any contests from the Nov. 3 election, and undo any certifications already made, such as Biden’s victory, while its lawsuit is considered.
Congress cannot challenge any electors named by Dec 8 in accordance with state law.Justice Samuel Alito ordered the state’s lawyers to respond by Dec. 9, a day after what is known as the safe harbor deadline.
Actually that's federal law.Congress cannot challenge any electors named by Dec 8 in accordance with state law.
