“Upon consideration of the events’ filings in Commonwealth Courtroom, we hereby dismiss the petition for assessment with prejudice based mostly upon Petitioners’ failure to file their facial constitutional problem in a well timed method.”
Justice David Wecht wrote in his concurring statement that Republican politician Logan “ran and misplaced in a particular election in February” and Kelly and Parnell participated within the 2020 main elections, however “it occurred to none of them to problem the constitutionality of Act 77 earlier than then.” Wecht continued that petitioners “play a harmful recreation on the expense of each Pennsylvania voter.”
“Unhappy with the outcomes of that wager, they’d now flip over the desk, scattering to the shadows the votes of thousands and thousands of Pennsylvanians,” Wecht wrote. “It isn’t our position to lend legitimacy to such clear and premature efforts to subvert the need of Pennsylvania voters. Courts mustn’t resolve elections when the need of the voters is evident.”
Justice Thomas Saylor and Justice Sallie Mundy solely agreed partially with the bulk opinion as evidenced by Saylor’s concurring and dissenting statement. He wrote that “injunctive aid restraining certification of the votes of Pennsylvanians forged within the 2020 basic election mustn’t have been granted and is unavailable within the current circumstances” however that he finds the problem “presents troublesome questions concerning the constitutional validity of the brand new mail-in voting scheme.”
So let’s resist the temptation to focus completely on President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.
