Donald Trump’s legal challenges to the results of the 2020 election just scored their biggest victory yet.
And this case has all hell breaking loose.
That’s because a judge just stopped Joe Biden from winning this state’s Electoral College votes.
Republicans focused on the state changing the rules for no-excuse absentee mail-in voting right before the election as an open invitation to fraud and an illegal and unconstitutional attempt to change the election rules.
Judge Patricia McCullough agreed with the claims put forth in a lawsuit led by Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Mike Kelly and granted a stay blocking the state from certifying the results.
McCullough ruled that the state did not follow the proper procedure to change the rules to vote by mail.
“Specifically, pursuant to Article XI, Section 1, a proposed constitutional amendment must be approved by a majority vote of the members of both the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate in two consecutive legislative sessions, then the proposed amendment must be published for three months ahead of the next general election in two newspapers in each county, and finally it must be submitted to the qualified electors as a ballot question in the next general election and approved by a majority of those voting on the amendment,” McCullough wrote.
McCullough ruled that since she believed the Republicans were likely to succeed on the merits of the case, she could issue a preliminary injunction blocking the state from certifying the results.
“Additionally, Petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed on the merits because Petitioners have asserted the Constitution does not provide a mechanism for the legislature to allow for expansion of absentee voting without a constitutional amendment. Petitioners appear to have a viable claim that the mail-in ballot procedures set forth in Act 77 contravene Pa. Const. Article VII Section 14 as the plain language of that constitutional provision is at odds with the mail-in provisions of Act 77. Since this presents an issue of law which has already been thoroughly briefed by the parties, this Court can state that Petitioners have a likelihood of success on the merits of its Pennsylvania Constitutional claim,” McCullough added.
The partisan Democrat Pennsylvania state Supreme Court is likely to overturn this ruling.
But the Trump campaign will be able to take their case to the Supreme Court and point to the fact that at least one judge agreed with their claim that Pennsylvania implemented an illegal and unconstitutional voting system that led to hundreds of thousands of questionable ballots.
