Pittsburgh’s CBS News affiliate reports:
Congressman Mike Kelly and congressional candidate Sean Parnell are requesting the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania to declare universal mail-in voting unconstitutional in the state and deny the votes of the majority of Pennsylvanians who voted by mail in the Nov. 3 election.
In the official request, the plaintiffs specifically cite issue with Act 77 and its “universal mail-in ballot provisions.” They allege that the provisions that allow all qualified electors to vote by mail in Pennsylvania are unconstitutional.
As such, they are calling for mail-in ballots that they allege do not meet “Constitutional requirements” to not be certified and for only “legal votes” to be certified or for the Pennsylvania General Assembly to choose the electors and compensate the legal costs of the plaintiffs.
Kelly last appeared on JMG when he attacked Black Lives Matter with this: “I’m also a person of color. I’m white.”
If Mike Kelly has a problem with the ballot that HE was re-elected on, then he shouldn’t take the oath of office in January. If he says he will do this, I will take this stunt more seriously. Your move, @MikeKellyPA. https://t.co/8ZtyiMlMTr

Trump has somehow conned not only Mike Kelly, but nearly the entire Republican Party into being active participants in a seditious coup attempt of American democracy.
Imagine, a real estate-version of the My Pillow guy has turned out to be America’s greatest danger since WWII. https://t.co/9Tn3KL049B
