Pennsylvania Republicans call for Arizona-style election audit

Source: The Hill

Republican lawmakers from Pennsylvania are calling for their state to conduct an Arizona-style audit of the 2020 presidential election, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

During a visit to Phoenix on Wednesday, three GOP Pennsylvania state lawmakers toured an audit site and met with Arizona Republican lawmakers to discuss issues with the elections, according to Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers (R), the Journal reported.

Two state senators and one member of Pennsylvania's House met with Arizona legislators at the state Capitol before visiting the audit site for a briefing, The Associated Press reported.

The Republican-led Arizona Senate has hired auditors to hand-count 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County. President Biden won the state by 10,000 votes out of more than 3.3 million cast, in part due to a narrow victory over former President Trump in Maricopa County.

2. Fug 'em.

PA needs to tell them to crawl back into the hole they slithered out of and then fornicate themselves. With a pitchfork. An old rusty, manure-encrusted, tetanus- and corona-infected pitchfork. With bent tines. Sideways.

9. Sorta sounds like the voicemail left last night...

Spouse wasn’t having any of this story and left a message for one of the dumbasses. No four letter words were used but she was very clear in her disapproval.

3. Wait, there was a tread earlier that said the PA repugs had decided NOT to ask

for an audit. Can't they make up their idiot minds? Or is this just more keep the "stolen" election in the news? They confuse me.

The election's been decided.

5. I honestly wouldn't care, EXCEPT

These audits have little transparency and oversight, and are apparently not subject FOIA/open records laws.

If they want to recount records or look for inelligible voters, be my guest. But it should be transparent and there should be oversight. AND it should be nonpartisan in that it looks at the entire state, not just Democratic jurisdictions.

11. They can call for anything they want

and it will be vetoed by (D) Governor Wolf, and they don't have enough to override the veto.

These idiots were laughed out of both the state AND federal courts many times due to their election shenanigans.

AZ has a GOP Executive branch (governor), Legislative branch, and Judicial branch (where the Justices are appointed and all were done by GOP governors).

PA *ONLY* has a GOP-majority in the Legislative branch, where both the Executive branch (governor/SOS) and Judicial branch (which has elected Justices, and is currently 5 (D) - 2 (R)), are both Democratic-majority. We also have a Democrat as the State Attorney General.

It's all kabuki theater. That whole pile of loons need to be locked up.

This won't go anywhere. Like you say ... kabuki theater.

14. Yes

And I expect he has his sights on running for Governor next year to replace Wolf. We would definitely NEED a (D) governor again for another 4 years, which is often hard to do because this state tends to rotate parties when it comes to governors (but then we broke precedent of automatic 2-terms and got rid of Corbett after one term so... ).

I wonder if these jerks know what comprised the 1st Division when they landed on Normandy and Winters team that jumped behind fascists' held Germans and other conscripts in France.........and as a side note I wonder if they have been to State College and the 3rd Division memorial there.......probably not........

Wonder if the majority of Trump's lemmings are stupid enough to follow the January 6th bunch into the penitentiary.

25. The (R) idiots in Pennsylvania don't want the (R) idiots in Arizona to have all the fun ...

They want to come out looking like complete morans themselves.
Why let the AZ (R)'s look like morans when they can share their abundance of stupidity with PA (R)'s?

26. Lead by Mastriano and Dush

Mastriano was at the Jan 6th riot and a Trump cultist. Dush is another rwnj. However, Seth Grove (R-York) is now head of the state house gov't committee and said he won't support their request. Fortunately Grove replaced Darryl Metcalfe last year as this committee's chair.

27. Do PA voters have millions to pay to replace voting machines/systems?

They'll have to do that if they turn everything over to an un-certified, inexperienced firm like Cyber Ninjas.

Talk about compromised election security...

29. Democracy is dead. America is finished

Here's a good associated story: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/not-just-arizona-republicans-push-more-partisan-election-audits-n1268644

Republicans will want to re-count votes over and over again until they win or until they can sully enough ballots to draw the election results into question.

I've never been so pessimistic.
