With the results of the 2020 presidential campaign pending, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf responded to Donald Trump after filing a lawsuit Wednesday to stop the ballot count.
Speaking at a press conference, Governor Wolf said, “That afternoon, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit to stop ballot counting in Pennsylvania. That’s just wrong. It goes against the most basic principles of democracy. It deprives every American citizen of the right to vote and choose our leaders. “
“Our state and local election officials should be free to do their jobs without fear, intimidation or attack in order to undermine the democratic process. It’s just a shame,” he said.
Wolf said he would see forward that every vote in Pennsylvania be counted.
As we previously reported, Republicans have filed a federal lawsuit alleging officials in the Philadelphia suburb, Montgomery County, of illegally processing 49 postal ballot papers prior to Tuesday to allow voters to troubleshoot issues with their ballot papers.
Also in the lawsuit, US Republican Representative Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania and five other plaintiffs sought to prevent counties from giving voters whose postal ballots were disqualified the opportunity to provisionally cast their votes.
Pennsylvania hasn’t been the only state Trump has filed a lawsuit for as Ameican continues to wait and see who will be the next president. He also filed in Georgia and Michigan.
