Eight Pennsylvania congressmen plan to object to election results:
Eight Republican members of Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation signaled Thursday that they will object to the Electoral College results when Congress meets to formally certify them on Jan. 6.
The members said Pennsylvania lawmakers, election officials, and/or courts illegally authorized the use of drop boxes, didn’t do proper signature matching on mail-in ballots, and improperly allowed officials to accept ballots past 8 p.m. on Election Day.
“The Pennsylvania election could be summed up as a free-for-all with no oversight and different standards applied throughout the commonwealth,” the members said.
They said the scope of the inaccuracies aren’t known and that Pennsylvania’s certifying the commonwealth’s 20 electors for President-elect Joseph R. Biden was based on a flawed system.
“Until these unlawful practices are acknowledged and corrected, we cannot agree to support electors chosen based upon an inaccurate total vote count,” they said. --->READ MORE HERE
