Pennsylvania ‘forensic investigation’ seeks election materials

WaEx: A Pennsylvania Republican lawmaker requested “information and materials” from multiple counties for a “forensic investigation” of the 2020 election, marking the first step toward creating a copycat of the partisan audit in Maricopa County, Arizona.

State Rep. Doug Mastriano, who said he was encouraged to run for governor by former President Donald Trump, is certain to meet resistance from Democrats in the Legislature as well as state officials who have heavily criticized efforts to question the integrity of the November contest during which Joe Biden won Pennsylvania by more than 80,000 votes.

By sending out letters to “several” counties on Wednesday, Mastriano, who is chairman of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee, is fulfilling the wishes of Trump and his allies who have called for “forensic” audits in more battleground states that they insist were stolen due to fraud despite election officials asserting they were secure and the courts rejecting lawsuits meant to overturn the results.

Like in Arizona, post-election audits by election officials showed no widespread fraud, but Trump and his allies are calling for more in-depth partisan investigations while calling into question several facets of the election, including the voting machines used. But there have been explosive repercussions. Maricopa County officials announced last week that their voting machines that were subpoenaed for the audit will be removed from service after Arizona’s Democratic secretary of state, Katie Hobbs, threatened to decertify the equipment.

  1. Are we headed for a civil war? Do we have the balls. The Communists hold high ground. They own everything. Except us. You gotta be brain dead not to think Trump won this and we were all, all, disenfranchised. Trying times. Intelligence gathering can be a weapon too. Turned against the them. Lets have some fun.

  2. Proving that Pennsylvania’s electoral votes were stolen would be key. And I’m sure they were.

  3. “Like in Arizona, post-election audits by election officials showed no widespread fraud…”

    Really? The results haven’t even been reported yet!

  4. What do you mean, “partisan”? It’s only partisan because the demorats are refusing to participate because they know their fraud is going to be uncovered. I notice nobody is calling the Jan. 6 commission “partisan”.
