In a new election development, official in Pennsylvania are calling for an audit of the 2020 election results that ended up with the state being called for Joe Biden.
“A prominent Republican member of the Pennsylvania State Senate said on Monday he wants a full audit of the 2020 election in the state, similar to the ongoing Maricopa County audit ordered by the Arizona State Senate,” according to a report from Breitbart News.
Per a story from The Hill:
Pennsylvania state Sen. David Argall (R), who heads the Senate State Government Committee that has oversight of election administration, told reporters he supports another look at the Pennsylvania results.
“It’s a very careful recount, forensic audit, so yeah, I don’t see the danger in it,” Argall said during a forum with reporters from Spotlight PA, a consortium of media companies from across the state. “I just think that it would not be a bad idea at all to proceed with an audit similar to what they’re doing in Arizona.”
Argall, a political scientist who teaches at Penn State Schuylkill, acknowledged two other audits of Pennsylvania’s votes that have already taken place and which confirmed President Biden’s victory in the perennial swing state.
According to Politico, Joe Biden was certified the winner of the November 3, 2020 election in Pennsylvania over Donald Trump by less than 81,000 votes — 1.2 percent of the 6.8 million votes cast in the state.
