Didn't the GOP cause this shit in PA? Blocking the early counting of early and mail in votes

is why it appeared that Trump was winning but he wasn't. Another reason why Dems must work hard to take back state houses and governorships.

They get into government and defund it. Then they complain about how useless government is while they cause it by the lack of funding. Risk and repeat.

PA never had much mail-in voting before this year. Previously counting the absentee ballots on Election Day was not a problem. Of course the Repugs refused to change the law to reflect a huge increase in mail voting.

The point was to give room for Trump to call foul about all these votes showing up for Biden at the end. Not gonna work.
Cant look it up right now - but I think the other two states might have been Wisconsin and Michigan...

It should be noted they did it to suppress voting and if it takes a while to count they are hoping their lawsuits post election will stop the count in PA. It was a two pronged suppression strategy

I bet if we get to look @ all the mail in ballots Biden's margin of victory would be much
bigger and Florida would flip too.
