A Huge 2020 Election Case Just Had All Hell Breaking Loose In One Key State

Donald Trump claims Democrats rigged the 2020 election.

Trump just received vindication on one front.

And a huge 2020 election case just had all hell breaking loose in one key state.

As American Patriot Daily reports:

Donald Trump argued that states like Pennsylvania illegally changed mail-in voting laws ahead of the 2020 election.

One of the states in question was Pennsylvania that Joe Biden won by 80,000 votes.

The Pennsylvania state legislature passed a law expanding no-excuse mail-in voting.

Trump and his supporters argued this was illegal as the Pennsylvania State Constitution clearly laid out the only way to change state voting laws is by putting a ballot initiative before the voters.

Democrats used loosened mail-in voting laws to juice turnout and the relaxed mail-in voting laws likely played a large role in Biden flipping Pennsylvania in 2020.

Republicans in Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the legislation expanding mail-in voting.

And the GOP – and by extension Donald Trump – won a measure of vindication when Pennsylvania Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ruled the law unconstitutional.

Leavitt wrote “if presented to the people, a constitutional amendment to end Article VII, Section 1 requirement of in-person voting is likely to be adopted.”

However, Leavitt wrote the only way to adopt mail-in voting is by putting a constitutional amendment to the voters for their approval.

“But a constitutional amendment must be presented to the people and adopted into our fundamental law before legislation allowing no-excuse mail-in voting can be ‘placed upon our statute books,’” Judge Leavitt added.

Judge Leavitt pointed to the massive numbers of mail-in ballots cast in the 2020 election – 2.7 million – as evidence the law allowing for no-excuse mail-in voting played a massive role in candidate strategy and the election which granted the Republican legislators the standing to sue.

“In the 2020 general election, 2.7 million ballots were cast as mail-in or absentee ballots; more than 1.38 million Pennsylvania electors have requested to be placed on a permanent mail-in ballot list,” Leavitt added. “Given these numbers, it is obvious that no-excuse mail-in voting impacts a candidate’s campaign strategy. We conclude that Petitioners have standing.”

2020 saw record voter turnout.

Some of that increased turnout was due in large part to states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin changing mail-in voting laws in ways Republicans argued was illegal.

The court’s refused to hear challenges to these laws in the immediate aftermath of the 2020 election.

Donald Trump and his supporters stewed over losing those court cases.

But Judge Leavitt’s decision does validate the argument Trump and some of his supporters made that states illegally changed mail-in voting rules to help Democrats and Joe Biden.
