    Default Ohio A.G. joins Republican effort at Supreme Court to block late-arriving mail ballots in Pennsylvania

    Ohio A.G. joins Republican effort at Supreme Court to block late-arriving mail ballots in Pennsylvania

    When I'm not defending the Lake County Ohio Korts & Ol' Niggerlips I love to interfere with Pennsylvania elections


    Ohio’s Republican attorney general urged the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to order Pennsylvania to throw out any mail ballots that were received after Election Day.

    Dave Yost said in a brief to the Court that Pennsylvania’s most senior judges “unconstitutionally intruded” on the state legislature’s power when they extended the deadline for the receipt of ballots.

    Yost’s motion was filed in support of an effort by Pennsylvania Republicans to invalidate ballots postmarked on or before Election Day that arrived by 5 p.m. Friday.

    That deadline was set in September by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court, which extended the usual cutoff point of 8 p.m. on Election Day amid concerns over delays in Postal Service delivery of mail ballots.

    Republicans argue that the state court usurped a 2019 state law allowing all Pennsylvanians to vote by mail, which stated that all mail ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has ordered Pennsylvania authorities to keep late-arriving ballots segregated from other votes in advance of further action in the case. Kathy Boockvar, Pennsylvania’s secretary of state, has said the number of ballots arriving after Election Day was small and would not be enough to change the outcome of the presidential race.

    Yost said in his brief that Ohio was not objecting to voting by mail, noting that his own state counted absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day.

    But, he wrote, “Ohio is interested in this case because reversal is crucial to protecting the Constitution’s division of authority over state election laws.”

    President Trump’s campaign has asked the Court to let it intervene in the case and other Republican state attorneys general were expected to throw their support behind it later Monday.
