Pennsylvania Supreme Court Rules in Favor of GOP and Voting Integrity, Making It Somewhat Harder for the Democrats to Cheat

This is big.

Pennsylvania state law requires that mail-in ballots be dated before election day or the day of election day to be counted.

The corrupt governor of Pennsylvania -- who by the way killed thousands in the nursing homes by stuffing them full of covid-positive patients instead of caring for them at hospitals, so election rigging is no big deal to him -- said "I don't care what the law says" and directed election boards to count the votes whatever the date said. Even if the ballots were marked with no date, or a date after election day.

Furthermore, he went a step further: He told election boards not even to bother segregating these ballots so they could be inspected and challenged and possibly removed from the vote pool, but instead just to be immediately mixed in with the good votes so that no one could later challenge the votes.

Even if you proved that the envelope containing a ballot was sent a day or two after the election, and therefore was not a legal vote, you couldn't stop that vote from counting -- Governor Wolf ordered that vote to already be mixed in with legal votes so that you couldn't tell which were the legal votes and which the illegal ones.

I mean, come on, we know that the illegal votes are for Democrats, but the Democrats always claim "no one knows who all these illegal votes are for."

Meanwhile they fight tooth and nail to keep the system open to as much potential fraudulent voting as possible. But they have no idea who's benefiting from these suspect votes.

The GOP sued, this time early enough to get an opinion, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered that votes that lack a date or are "misdated" must be kept segregated from presumably-legal votes:

They have ordered boards of election not to count them, but to keep them segregated. I suppose this means they may be counted later; but that will be a separate ruling. For now, the Court is at least ordering the boards of elections to keep these suspicious votes away from the good ones.

Unfortunately, the court is deadlocked three to three on whether there's a violation of federal law here, which may be why this half-way step is the most they could agree on.

The Court is evenly divided on the issue of whether failing to count such ballots violates 52 U.S.C. §10101(a)(2)(B).

So for right now they're punting, and just keeping them separate, until/unless they have to visit this question again. I have no idea what will happen on a three to three tie, or how that will be broken.

I suppose an appeal to the Supreme Court, which can hear cases about interpretations of federal law (as all justices believe this is a case of).

Seven polls show shifts of 3 to 8 points towards the GOP on the generic congressional preference question.

Even the very leftwing, very Democrat Morning Consult poll finally finds that Democrats are not favored on the generic preference question. but note that's a reversal from the five point Democrat lead they claimed they found in September, 49% D, 44% R.

Cook moves ten more House races towards the GOP's direction. Note this doesn't mean they're predicting the GOP will win them; moving in the GOP's direction can mean changing a rating from "Likely D" to "Lean D," or "Lean D" to "Toss Up."

But all movement continues to be in the direction of the Red Tide.

2022 Washington Senate General Poll

The New York Times' insufferable leftwing tw&t Michelle Goldberg is very very worried that the Democrats are going to lose the Oregon governorship.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- An ad for one of the candidates for governor of Oregon begins with shots of trash and the tarp-covered tent encampments that line many of Portland's streets. "Nobody in Oregon would say, 'Let's keep doing exactly what we've been doing,'" says the candidate. She continues, "I called for a homelessness state of emergency nearly three years ago, while Kate Brown" -- the current Democratic governor -- "did nothing."

It's not a surprising message in a campaign in which homelessness and crime are central issues. What's surprising is the messenger: Tina Kotek, the former Democratic speaker of the Oregon House, running to succeed Brown.

Make all the Kotex jokes you want, but God beat you to them: She literally looks like a tampon.

Kotek's ad is a sign of the indefensibility of the status quo in one of the country's most progressive cities, and of the unexpected political peril Oregon Democrats face as a result. Most polls show that her opponent, Christine Drazan, the former Republican minority leader in Oregon's House, has a slight lead in the race. If Drazan wins, it will be a sign that no place is immune to the right's message on public disorder, whose resonance is also making Gov. Kathy Hochul's race for re-election in New York uncomfortably close.

A Republican hasn't won the Oregon governor's race in 40 years. And while progressive states electing G.O.P. governors is nothing new, Drazan -- like New York's Republican gubernatorial nominee, Lee Zeldin -- is far more conservative than the Rockefeller-style Republicans who lead Massachusetts and Vermont. She has an A rating from the N.R.A. and an endorsement from Oregon Right to Life, meaning that just months after the end of Roe v. Wade, Oregon could end up with an abortion opponent in charge.

Bonus, from weft-cut loop:

@BreitbartNews 12m

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who lost her primary for reelection this year, has endorsed Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) against Republican J.D. Vance in Ohio's United States Senate race.


And where's Biden? Biden is being deployed to Florida, where there is zero chance he can rescue any major candidates, because DeSantis is leading Crist by 11 or 12 and Rubio is ahead of Val Jennings by 7.

He's being sent to Florida because 1, he's an old dying man and that's where you send old dying man, and 2, because he can't actually do any damage to Democrats in Florida.

Or so they think.

He has a rally there at seven, and as Deb Heine commented, "He's already sundowning."


Fettermanesque.

Update: Feel the excitement!

Breaking911 @Breaking911

Debbie Wasserman Schultz introduces Biden in Florida:

"C'mon people, let's wake up! We got the President of the United States in the house! C’mon now! […] Just wanted to make sure you're still here."

"C'mon people, let's wake up!" is the uglier, smellier, more whoreish sister of "Please clap."
