The U.S. Supreme Court’s rejection of the Pennsylvania election case brought by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., is not surprising as much as disappointing, according to Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., on Newsmax TV.
“I am not sure I am overly surprised, but I continue to be amazed and disappointed,” Biggs, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told Tuesday’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “There are other things pending in Pennsylvania that has to be resolved.
“The legislature has got to work a fix on it. It reality, I don’t think this is overly surprising to anybody. It shouldn’t be anyway.”
Pennsylvania courts and Democrat leaders like Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf overruled the will of the state legislature on universal mail-in balloting and a ballot extension beyond Election Day, and that should be considered unconstitutional, Bigg told host Chris Salcedo.
“That’s the real problem in Pennsylvania; they disregarded the Constitution,” Biggs said. “They decided they wanted to change the law, so instead of going through the process of amending the Constitution they just – as you said, ‘willy nilly’ – established the law.
“Dubiously, they established the law. The courts are not going under the auspices of the Constitution. So it’s a real huge problem, not only in Pennsylvania but around the country.”
Biggs added “don’t be surprised if you see a continuation of litigation out of Pennsylvania.”
“There’s so much that went wrong there, and quite frankly, it’s disenfranchised voters around the country, because if you can change the law to impact one state you dilute the votes of everybody else,” he concluded.
