Fetterman Sues to Have Mail-In Ballots Counted Even If Not Signed with Valid Date

One of the closest races tonight will probably be the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race, where Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz is running a tight race against Democrat John Fetterman. Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor, probably thought he could cruise to victory, given he had a commanding 11-point lead during the summer. Yet, the former Braddock mayor was also recovering from a severe stroke, evident on the campaign trail. It also doesn’t help that crime has become a top 2022 issue, and Fetterman is decidedly on the pro-crime side.

He wants to empty one-third of the state’s prisoners back onto the street and supports nixing life sentences for murderers. Oz has been attacking Fetterman’s record on public safety, which has catapulted Oz to a slim lead over the Pennsylvania Democrat in recent polls. Tonight, it will be no cakewalk for either side, which is why Fetterman is suing to allow illegal ballots to be counted (via Philadelphia Inquirer):

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s campaign for U.S. Senate has joined the legal fight over whether mail ballots with no date or the incorrect date should be counted in Tuesday’s election.

The Democratic campaign sued Pennsylvania elections officials Monday asking a federal judge to order that all mail ballots be counted regardless of what date, if any, voters wrote on the outside of the envelope.

State law requires that voters handwrite a date on the outer envelope when returning their mail ballots, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last week that undated and wrongly dated mail ballots be set aside and not counted. The court issued a follow-up order Saturday setting specific date ranges that the handwritten dates must fall within.

There will likely be tens of thousands of undated and wrongly dated ballots rejected statewide under that ruling. Because mail ballots are so disproportionately used by Democrats over Republicans, that will likely mean thousands, if not tens of thousands, of net votes for Fetterman that are rejected.

[…]

Throwing out ballots over such a technicality, they argue, violates federal civil rights law.

”The date [requirement] imposes unnecessary hurdles that eligible Pennsylvanians must clear to exercise their most fundamental right, resulting in otherwise valid votes being arbitrarily rejected without any reciprocal benefit to the Commonwealth,” their lawsuit reads.

Revert to what Spencer wrote about the PA Supreme Court’s ruling about undated ballots: they’re illegal. And Democrats and bubble liberals wonder why so many Americans are starting to question the integrity of our elections—this is it. And 11th-hour lawsuits filed so that illegal ballots can be counted couldn’t be a better fuel for that narrative. I’m not saying that’s what’s going to happen, but if anyone wants to wonder why ‘election denialism’ is a news item, they only have to look at its creators: the liberal elite.

    Apparently some Americans are OK being ruled by Zombies such as F**kerman and crapping pants biden , brain dead droolers who wear their Depends with pride.

    If Dr Oz addressed the 249,000 ballots that were sent out to “unregistered” voters, and question how they were handled yesterday – just perhaps we can close the gap of 150K votes…

  • Bill Walker says:

    If he’s elected it will label Pennsylvania as being the STUPIDEST state in the union! He is absolutely the face of the disease that has infected our country. Not just “After stroke” but PRE STROKE!

  • Bill Walker says:

    Democrats have our elections so badly but solidly rigged they are able to put up the dumbest, most corrupt, most unqualified individuals they can possibly find (Easiest to control) and announce that they’ve won their various races and we sit back and take it!????????

  • Rita says:

    Clearly the people of Pennsylvania are to stupid to know you have to sign and date the envelope. They voted for Joe Biden junior (Fetterman). I guess he speaks their language.
