Supreme Court of PA: Ballots Received 3 Days After Election Without Evidence of Postmark Acceptable

This is likely to open a can of worms. What could possibly go wrong? Ever heard of ballot harvesting? Google it, if you haven’t. It’s not a good thing.

Check out what’s going down in the Keystone State, via Breitbart:

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Thursday that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.

Democrats scored two judicial victories in Pennsylvania on Thursday, when the court kicked the Green Party presidential candidate off the ballot, and ruled that mailed-in ballots could still be counted util 5:00 p.m. ET on the third day after Election Day, as long as they were postmarked by 8:00 p.m ET that day.

The court added: that “ballots received within this period” — i.e. between November 3 and 6 –“that lack a postmark or other proof of mailing, or for which the postmark or other proof of mailing is illegible, will be presumed to have been mailed by Election Day unless a preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that it was mailed after Election Day.”

In a footnote, the court explains its reasoning, saying that disqualifying a ballot without a postmark would “disenfranchise a voter based upon the absence or illegibility of a USPS postmark that is beyond the control of the voter once she places her ballot in the USPS delivery system.”

Something a presidential candidate shouldn’t be doing this close to voting day is agreeing with his opponent. It’s just bad optics.

And considering President Trump already has a big advantage as the incumbent going into November, siding with POTUS on any issue just makes Joe look like even more of a goof than most people already think he is.

But it’s a day ending in “y,” so Joe’s gonna be Joe!

If Joe Biden becomes president on January 20, 2021, there’s a decent chance Kamala Harris could become president not long after. Sounds pretty scary, doesn’t it?

It should frighten you.

Thankfully, not everyone on the left is thrilled about Joe’s VP pick.

As you might expect, President Trump gave his two cents.
