Millions of Americans across the country are stunned — the Supreme Court just issued a ‘reversal’ on the Pennsylvania election. This is a major bombshell.
“The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by several Republicans from a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision last month that held that a constitutional challenge to the state’s vote-by-mail law was barred for having been filed too late,” reported Breitbart News.
At issue was a Pennsylvania law allowing for mail-in voting (Act 77). Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) and a team of Republicans brought the lawsuit, claiming this provision was unconstitutional according to the Pennsylvania Constitution.
However, since the state Supreme Court had already overturned a lower court ruling that barred certification of election results, the U.S. Supreme Court clearly did not want to get involved at this stage in the process.
Even if Act 77 is unconstitutional under the Pennsylvania Constitution — which is a possibility, by the way — state lawmakers will now have to decide how to handle the issue going forward by amending or repealing the law.
This particular case may be over now, but there’s at least one moment that would’ve been great to see: Had the U.S. Supreme Court taken up the case, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “had volunteered to argue the Republicans’ case” before the court.
