76 of the 141 GOP representatives from the PA legislature signed a letter to the state’s Congressional representatives asking them to reject the state’s 20 electors, who would be voting for Joe Biden. Citing numerous, last minute changes to the voting process, as well as several election irregularities, the state reps urged Congress to object to the election results. “We the undersigned members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly urge you to object, and vote to sustain such objection, to the Electoral College votes received from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” the letter stated.
The letter also asked for an independent prosecutor and an investigation of the election process.
The statement was highly critical of Governor Wolf, who was a huge proponent of ACT 77. ACT 77 — bipartisan legislation that made several changes to PA’s election system — was signed into law in October of 2019. “Unfortunately, Governor Wolf and others quickly set about undermining the many protections provided under this law,” the letter said.
In particular, the GOP reps cited changes to the state’s mail-in ballot deadline, obstruction of poll watchers and the acceptance of defective ballots. The Democrat controlled PA Supreme Court extended the state’s mail-in ballot deadline to a full three days after the election back in September.
