A top election official in Pennsylvania says the state will disregard the U.S. Supreme Court's guidance on counting mail-in ballots arriving in envelopes with typos or incorrect dates, saying that the state's Commonwealth Court has already established the practice as licit. Pennsylvania's election laws have historically required voters to include a signature and date on the outside of return envelopes when voting by mail. However, acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman announced that Pennsylvania election officials should continue counting ballots that arrive with improperly filled-out envelopes, in accordance with the Commonwealth Court's previous ruling on the matter.

The fix is in …. Cheat just like Nov 3, because we don’t have to follow the Supreme Court ruling. The Supreme Court should charge or dissolve the state court, whatever is allowed by law. I thought the Pennsylvania constitution and US constitution says the state legislatures alone set the rules for elections.

Yup Fetterman wins on ballots counted by the Filthy-delphia rat hole. I hope when Oz loses he take his case to the SCOTUS of the grounds that they didn't follow the law.

OK, that works for me. If Pennsylvania can ignore the Supreme Court on this, that sets a precedence that any state can ignore anything the Supreme Court decides. So Alabama can immediately not accept homosexual "marriage" anymore, and cancel out any homosexual "marriages" that have happened in the state. Lie-berals just don't seem to understand "precedence" very much, do they?!?!?!?

If Pennsylvania says it's okay to cheat their voters in another election does that mean that residents who actually live in the state can cheat on their state income tax returns? Asking for a friend.

Every qualified living citizen over the age of 18 has the right to cast a legal ballot once and once only, and have that ballot counted once and once only and none but legal ballots shall be counted. A true and exact count of legal ballots shall be determine all elections. It really is as simple as that and all citizens must insist on following this standard.

All voting should be done in person, on election day, complete with the purple thumb method. Exceptions could be made for the sick or handicapped if they file a request before election day and have a ballot delivered to their home by a team of one republican and one democrat who each sign the ballot. Pennsylvania would turn red overnight. The other possibility is that the residents of Philadelphia will all shoot each other or die of drug overdose before election day. I'm tired of the honest conservatives of this state being cheated year after year by the Philadelphia democrat mafia and the PSEA teachers' union. That's how we continue to get morons like Tom Wolf, Rachel Levine and Festerman in high positions of government. To his/her/its credit, Rachel is now serving the top idiot in Washington and achieved the highest military rank in the US Navy without ever having served one day in the Navy. All achieved by penis denial.

Two FBI officials who briefed Facebook's parent company, Meta, about Hunter Biden's laptop also donated to Democrats in 2020, campaign finance records show. The findings are connected to a lawsuit from states claiming the federal government colluded with social media firms to censor free speech. And the agents – FBI Foreign Influence Task Force Chief Laura Dehmlow and FBI San Francisco Cyber Division Chief Elvis Chan – are each named in the suit. A court filing in connection with the suit alleges that Chan and Dehmlow were "involved in the communications between the FBI and Meta that led to Facebook's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story."

After the match, the godmother of one of the Duke players, who is black, tweeted that someone in the BYU crowd had yelled the “N-word” at her goddaughter when she was serving.

Never let a crisis go to waste, Rahm Emanuel once advised. Add to that this new axiom: Never let your emergency powers expire. As incompetent as Joe Biden might otherwise be, he’s proven adept at following both. Again: The Biden administration extended the Covid-19 pandemic’s status as a public health emergency for another 90 days, preserving measures such as expanded Medicaid and higher payments to hospitals. The decision follows comments President Biden made in September describing the pandemic as over. Some Republican lawmakers said afterward that the administration should wind down its pandemic response and the emergency designation.

That share is more than one-sixth greater than the 27.3% that Queens residents contribute to the city’s total population, according to 2020 census data. “It’s a powder keg in Queens at this point,”
