Lawsuit by Trump allies challenging Pennsylvania election results reaches Supreme Court

WASHINGTON – An effort to overturn the presidential election results in Pennsylvania made its way to the Supreme Court Tuesday.

Republican Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., and others, including Sean Parnell, contend state officials had no right under the Pennsylvania Constitution to expand mail-in voting in 2019, and the state Supreme Court was wrong to uphold that statute. The group called it “an unconstitutional, no-excuse absentee voting scheme.”

“Pennsylvania’s General Assembly exceeded its powers by unconstitutionally allowing no-excuse absentee voting, including for federal offices, in the election,” the challengers argued in court papers. As a result, the election was “conducted illegally.”

The group seeks an emergency injunction from the nation’s highest court to block the completion of any remaining steps in the state’s certification of Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results, which took place last week. The petition was submitted to Associate Justice Samuel Alito. The court will now decide whether to take the case.
