IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS Chester County
Local Republicans joined by others across the county filed a lawsuit with the Court of Common Pleas. This is a continuation of the Republican Party’s efforts to undermine voter confidence in elections by falsely claiming they have evidence of fraud and targeting certain precincts. Also this is costing money and time for the courts. Paid for by the taxpayers.
PETITION OF SALLY ANN MININGER, : MARTINA M. GAIN and ROBERT C. FRANK, ALL OF THE ELECTION DISTRICT OF TREDYFFRIN TOWNSHIP M-4, POLLING PLACE #617, Petitioners
FOR A CORRECT ACCOUNT OF : CHESTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA THE GENERAL ELECTION FOR THE GOVERNOR AND LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR OF PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES SENATOR FOR PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES STATE REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE 157TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT
On Friday, December 9th Judge Sommers rendered a verdict. Judge Sommers dismissed the case WITH PREJUDICE. Excerpts from the ruling:
Among the Republican petitioners were four precinct officials. As the judgment stated, “The four Petitioners who conducted the election in their precinct and who swore that they would uphold the law, who counted and reconciled the votes, and who then swore that they followed all procedures proscribed by law, now claim there was fraud in their precinct. In short, they now claim they themselves acted fraudulently or in error. Aside from the obvious question, “Were you lying then or are you lying now”.
Also: “Yet, the court was struck by the brazen proffer by Petitioners’ counsel that
they had specific, factual evidence of fraud or error, but had purposefully chosen not to
present those allegations to the court or to the Board of Elections in their Petitions
because “they didn’t have to.”
No fraud. No computation errors. Just absurdity and farce.
