PA Judge: Ballots Previously Set Aside Should Not Be Counted


The Trump campaign picked up a win in a Pennsylvania court on Thursday when Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ordered that Pennsylvania Secretary of State did not have the authority to extend the deadline, for providing proof of identification, to six days after the ballot deadline.

“[T]he Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020, guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline … for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt said in a court order.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted three days after election day, November 3rd. PA Secretary of State, Kathy Bookckvar, then extended the identification deadline another three days in a decision issued just two days before the election.

This decision by Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt says that Boockvar did not have the authority to extend that deadline.

Those ballots received between November 10-12 were ordered to be segregated and now have been effectively 'tossed out'.

This signals a win for the Trump campaign, but they aren't done yet.

This is one of several legal challenges the Trump campaign is bringing in Pennsylvania. On Friday they are scheduled to have a hearing over thousands of ballots that they claim were improperly counted despite lacking required information.

One America News's Jack Posobiec says this ruling sets a strong precedent for whether the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had the power to extend the deadline.

  1. I am so ashamed to be an American,
    We used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    Now we are a BANANA REPUBLIC !
    One whole political party is involved in a massive election fraud that is not talked about on the major news.
    The candidate they are pushing is a senile, weak person who is already sold out to Russia and China.
    I don’t understand how intelligent people can support such a situation.

    1. I think we have a large number of low I.Q. people voting today and the Banana Republic started with that muslim half breed who was not even a US born citizen. The dems got away with murder when LBJ had Kennedy assassinated and after that they had it made, as no Repub had any gonads and no one stopped their lying cheating stealing murdering ways. It has been a long time coming and should have been squashed years ago is the Repubs had had any balls.

      1. Here is what happened… With the help of the press, the schools, and colleges, they converted being a liberal into a religion, not a party affiliation . The proof is in the climate change hysteria . Religions tell you, “Do what we say or burn in hell.” Guess what? The climate change scam is; the same you will burn if you do not do exactly as you are told. Then world class criminals hijacked the Democratic party. They have the Press, the education system, and soon will have the courts, and the cops. This whole racist police bull is about replacing honest public police with private security under the control of the ruling class. It is damn near impossible to oppose religion. The true believers just won’t listen to anything but doctrine, no matter what factual evidence you present.

        1. It’s not religion, it’s the Devil Dems wants to take over our country and sell it to the highest bidders. Dumb ass Joe won’t be in the office long, he’s senile and feeble.

        2. Add Big Tech Twitter and FakeBook to this list.
          They hide under the Section 230 protection afforded to Non-Publishers.
          These entities are definitely acting as publishers by censoring and suppressing select content.

      2. Spot on ! Now we finally have a President that has the fortitude to do something about the lies, cheating and stealing and the dems are trying to make him look bad😡😡

    2. Totally agree. I came to the U.S. about 30 years ago and it was a different country then. My jaw drops at what is going on.

    3. I’m still proud to be an American; those directly involved in illegally interfering in our elections aren’t true patriotic Americans and more like “enemies of state”. The majority of the average folks who voted for Biden are weak-minded and too lazy to fact check anything the main steam media says. Not everyone can be brainwashed. Only the weak-minded can which sadly is increasing in numbers everyday among Americans. Those will be the first ones to whine and bitch when we lose all of our rights and liberties as the greatest, most powerful country in the world crumbles and is reduced to a mere pile of Democratic elites’ shit. Democrats are the only people who can tear up a damn anvil.

    4. Sadly it comes down to POWER & MONEY!!! There aren’t any morals, Christian ( & he calls himself a Roman Catholic ) values, or generous spirits involved. I am truly frightened for the future of MY COUNTRY. They HAVE to do recounts in these questionable states, with watchers closeby…I have faith, & a very active Rosary, that when all is said & done OUR PRESIDENT will prevail. A president that cannot string 4 words together for a coherent statement in a town that he needs prompting in for the WHERE AM I game…who is beholding to Communist China 🇨🇳 scared…you can’t even begin to know the meaning of scared…until it’s too late to UNRING the bell.

  2. Wrote this for the newspapers. Thought I’d share. If you want to become a slave to Biden’s ilk then don’t pass it on. If you want to fight then please do.

    Re: Biden’s administration picks

    Dear Editor,
    As an independent voter I have to say that if Biden and the Democrats were honest and had integrity I wouldn’t have a problem with them running the country but they have no honor, integrity or morals.
    Biden is a self professed criminal by deed when he blackmailed the Ukraine. He committed treason when he colluded with Obama making a deal with our sworn enemy Iran.
    Listening to his choices of who he wants to pick in his administration, he chose from a Rogues’ Gallery of despicable liars and anarchists who want to turn our country into a dictatorship where everyone is subservient to their socialist ideological government.
    By all accounts, Biden and his misfits live in fear of the far left of their party who want communist/socialist rule.
    Those that are pushing that agenda have forgotten that our country fought and killed communist Chinese in Korea. They forgot that President Kennedy kicked out Communist Russia’s intervention in Cuba in the missile crises. In Vietnam we fought and killed Communist Chinese and Russians; I was there serving in the Marine Corps to witness that. Our countrymen gave up their lives in Iraq, Libya, Lebanon and Afghanistan fighting against ideologies that would make those people slaves.
    Our country has fought in many wars to keep democracy as we know it. We have tried to bring god’s gift of freedom to the world over many years getting rid of despots that enslaved their people.
    We must stand against those in our country that would enslave us otherwise; we will lose our god given rights under the constitution.

      1. Don’t hold your breath!. This is what the Second Amendment is for. Biden is a Trator and crook, Biden/Harris can not be allowed or any other democratic or Progressive Commie Ass wipes to take Power in America or it will be Amerika.

        Rex

  3. So what does the Legislature rule on extending the deadline and extra 3 days? Yep President Trump is correct warning against the fear of potential wrong counts as has happened. Excellent find to stopping wrong counts . Gotta see if news max is covering this per my AZ friend.

  4. I believe it started in the 80’s. I notice the schools not teaching the kids about history, religion, Pledge of Allegiance, etc. What I did notice was how things should be free, etc… Now those kids are grown up and guess what we got? We got this big mess, where these younger adults think everything should be given to them, they don’t like to work for what they get. Everything should be handed to them. And Biden will never be my Pres. Can’t stand him! And I really hate it when Biden will say; Ya Man. Does he think he’s talking to a bunch of hippies??? Biden can’t remember who he’s talking to, let alone his own name. I’ll give him 2 yrs if that & he won’t be Pres. (hopefully he’ll never be pres.) And guess who will be taking over, someone worst then him; that B**** so called vice pres. Oh No; now I will be put on a list to watch!

  5. WAY TO GO PRESIDENT TRUMP—–KEEP FIGHTING THIS INJUSTICE & FRAUDLENT BALLOT MANAGEMENT BY THE SO-CALLED VOTER POLL MANAGEMENT — A TRAGECY & JUST SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR BY ALL THE VOTING PLACES LACK OF LEADERSHIP

      1. Not as long as we have the existing top democrats in office, and they intend on remaining there until their ability to keep their choices in office and not ours. We have a constitutional right and obligation to be a voter, the Democrats have openly taken away our right to have a legitimate vote. Until they are gone nothing will change for the BETTER!

  6. It was to my understanding that Mail in ballots were created to allow people to get in their votes before election day as not to create a huge intake of voters at the Polling stations, this in turn was also to keep the doors closed at polling stations on time. So now the whole idea of mail in ballots is completely inadequate since they aren’t even complete a week or better past election day… If election day is the end of the counting then the uncounted mail in ballots are invalid as well with the exception of the ones that were discarded due to illegal tampering and hiding of mail in ballots. I think the whole idea of mail in was created not to give people more time but rather to allow voter fraud and tampering with the ballots by a certain party. Again way too much proof of illegal voter tampering with in the Democratic Party. They did it with in during their own primaries, just ask Sanders as it happened to him twice in a row.

    1. THEY LIED to make you think it was for convenience.

      INDIA has 1.3 billion people:

      They have a National on ONE DAY every 5 days,and NEVER have a problem.

      A THOUSAND MILLION MORE PEOPLE, and has no problems?

      They probably PUNISH ILLEGAL VOTE ATTEMPTS!

  7. FINE the ‘ballot counters that ACTIVELY FALSIFY THEIR COUNTS’ $5,000 per ballot and ONE YEAR IN PRISON FOR EACH FALSIFIED BALLOT.

    $10,000 for each ballot falsified under them, and up to AND INCLUDING THE DEATH PENALTY for their supervisors!

    that SHOULD GIVE THEM MORE TIME TO RETHINK THEIR PLOTS AND PLANS

  8. Pass out the BANANAS to the Democrat MONKEES! . . . they are ATTEMPTING to turn the U.S. into a BANANA republic. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump And His Allies 2020.

  9. GREAT!!!! CORRUPTION IS THE CORE OF ELECTED OFFICALS IN PENNSYLVAN….THEY HAD NO RIGHT TO CORRUPT THE PRESIDENTAL ELECTION OF PENNSYLVANIA AND SHOULD BE PUNISHED TO THE CORE….ALL NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO…If they played corruption in one part of the election…It surely means they also took part in the corruption in other areas of the election….THEY WERE DISPERATE FOR JOE BIDEN TO WIN…AND….THEY KNEW HE WOULD NOT WIN IF THEY DIDN’T TAKE PART IN THE CORRUPTION SCHEME!! HONESTY MUST PREVAIL…WE CAN’T LET CORRUPTION INTO OUR ELECTION PROCESS….WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE A FREE AMERICAN ELECTION..WE WILL BE LIKE MANY OTHER COUNTRIES AND “MOST” OF AMERICA DOES NOT WANT THAT …….PENNSYLVANIA….has always been corrupt…..but….YOU now have been caught….
