US Supreme Court asked to block Biden win in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Republicans attempting to undo President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to take up their lawsuit, three days after it was thrown out by the highest court in the battleground state.

In the request to the U.S. Supreme Court, Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly of northwestern Pennsylvania and the other plaintiffs are asking the court to prevent the state from certifying any contests from the Nov. 3 election, and undo any certifications already made, such as Biden’s victory…

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court on Saturday night threw out the lawsuit, including an order by a lower court judge blocking the certification of any uncertified races.

Justices cited the law’s 180-day time limit on filing legal challenges to its provisions, as well as the staggering demand that an entire election be overturned retroactively.

In the state’s courts, Kelly and the other Republican plaintiffs had sought to either throw out the 2.5 million mail-in ballots submitted under the law — most of them by Democrats — or to wipe out the election results and direct the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature to pick Pennsylvania’s presidential electors.

I’m not a lawyer, but I don’t understand how Kelly has standing to demand that an entire state’s election be thrown out, but such are the questions only lawyers of the highest calibre like [checks notes] Rudy Giuliani can understand.

I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if the SCOTUS agrees to hear this.

    The High Nine may deny cert, but on the other hand, Trump has the guns.

    Can we at least decertify Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district?

    I don’t think that the Supremes will take the case, but they make those decisions by vote. If they report the vote, any Justice voting to hear it will reveal herself as being wholly owned by the GOP.
    Huzzah!

      Well yes, but being an owned partisan, like being a deplorable, is a badge of honour for a significant segment of our population these days. Absolutely no downside.

    Let’s see what are the badges of honor for conservatives nowadays: (1) Hypocrisy: everything is fair game when making snowflakes cry. (2) Unspeakable creutly to targeted groups in our society. (3) Open naked partisanship in defiance of reality and democratic norm. And (4) authoritarianism: openly and explicitly longing for single -party minority rule in defiance of any electoral outcome.

    Huzzah!
