A Pennsylvania trial court ruled the 2020 election was likely unconstitutional. The case was filed by Congressman Mike Kelly and congressional hopeful Sean Parnell. Earlier this week, the court preliminarily enjoined Governor Wolf from taking further actions to certification the vote.
The judge, Patricia A. McCullough, writes in her latest opinion today: “Since this presents an issue of law which has already been thoroughly briefed by the parties, this Court can state that Petitioners [Mike Kelly] have a likelihood of success on the merits of its Pennsylvania Constitutional claim.”
The court also notes that Governor Wolf may have “short-circuited” the certification process to purportedly circumvent the court’s determination on the merits by declaring victories in the presidential election, while leaving certification of the other offices for another time.
Jude McCullough ordered that the emergency injunction will remain in place pending an emergency hearing of the evidence.
