(Dec. 28, 2020) — On Monday night, 17 Pennsylvania Republican legislators released a statement and analysis of the November 3 presidential election showing inconsistencies between county-reported figures and the Commonwealth’s “election reporting system,” “SURE,” operated by the Department of State.

In the press release, the lawmakers claimed that Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf, both Democrats, certified Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the November 3, 2020 presidential election while figures were “unconfirmed,” prematurely, and ultimately “in error.”

“These numbers just don’t add up,” the group contended.

“A comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020 as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted,” the press release reads. “Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates.”

Further, it states:

The difference of 202,377 more votes cast than voters voting, together with the 31,547 over- and under-votes in the presidential race, adds up to an alarming discrepancy of 170,830 votes, which is more than twice the reported statewide difference between the two major candidates for President of the United States. On November 24, 2020, Boockvar certified election results, and Wolf issued a certificate of ascertainment of presidential electors, stating that Vice President Joe Biden received 80,555 more votes than President Donald Trump.

The graphic at the bottom of the press release shows SURE data as consistent at 6,760,230 in three categories, including that of “voters who voted” on November 3, 2020.

After reviewing the legislators’ press release, The Post & Email contacted Boockvar’s office for comment.

Since November 4, Trump and his surrogates have claimed he won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes.

In a Friday podcast, Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, claimed Pennsylvania to be among four states whose electoral-vote certifications for Biden would be “decertified” very shortly.

  1. If the State Executive will not call a Legislative session for purposes of dealing with any issue involved with any functioning of any State Legislature regarding Federal Elections, the Constitution has been abridged. State Legislature is Constitutionally permitted call itself into session to consider all Federal Election Issues whatever, with or without the permission of the State Executive. To suggest otherwise is to hold that the Governor is somehow able to prevent the Legislature from performing its Federal Constitutional Election duties by simply refusing to call a special session. Must the Nation wait while one State’s Governor makes up his or her mind to call in the Legislature to consider a Time dependent Federal Election issue? No State Legislature operates on its own in consideration of a Federal Election.

    All power in consideration of Federal Elections is given to the State Legislatures. The Governor’s permission on when to assemble for an Election Issue is not required and the Legislature can and must come into session to deal with something as serious as Election Fraud or for any other reason related to Federal Elections especially those Time related. Must the Nation wait? The State Executive cannot interfere with the Legislature in any way including calling a special session for consideration of Federal Election Issues. The State Legislatures are all powerful regarding all considerations of Federal Elections and this is clearly stated in the Federal Constitutional document itself.

    Federal or State Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, or Federal Legislative Branch has no power over State Legislatures when Federal Electoral considerations of any kind must be made and any “lack of permission from these entities” cannot be given as some kind of excuse by weak Arizona Republican legislators for not assembling and taking up an Election Issue that is a necessary and rightful Federal Election consideration, including a Time factor is so central and immediate to their calling itself together. Again must the Nation wait? Nothing allows the Governor to in anyway interfere with State Legislative Federal Election Authority. If refusing to call a session can be shown to have become a factor of interference with that authority, the Governor has clearly overstepped His powers. Any State Legislature can at any time Order the Governor to call a session or even call itself into session for such reasons of Federal Legislature considerations, especially over some Time dependent Federal Electoral Issue. The Nation must not be forced to wait for some wooden headed Governor.

    1. Excellent Post. Unfortunately now that Pence has shown himself too cowardly to stand up for The Constitution, the fix that was already in will now come to fruition.
      How sad it is saying goodbye to America. Unbelievable what these bstrds have been able to get away with.

  2. just complaining doesn’t help. They need to takes steps to decertify the results, otherwise it is just more talk from complicit gop deep staters!!!!!

  3. “while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted,” the press release reads. “Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates.”

    The Pennsylvania Department of State website says for the presidential election – 6915220 votes were counted. Is that the SURE system?
