A Pennsylvania judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign Thursday, ordering that the state may not count ballots where the voters failed to provide proof of identification by Nov. 9.

Fox News:

Pennsylvania state law said that voters have until six days after the November 3rd election to cure problems regarding a lack of proof of identification. After the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted three days after Election Day, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar submitted guidance that said proof of identification could be provided up until Nov. 12, which is six days from the ballot acceptance deadline. That guidance was issued two days before Election Day.

“The Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020, guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline … for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt said in a court order.

The decision sided with the Trump campaign’s argument, which was that there was no basis in the state’s law to extend the identification deadline, and that Boockvar did not have the power to unilaterally change it.

WIBC host Tony Katz:

“It’s funny how the challenges have gotten people so in their heads. 

“‘Trump should concede,’ they’ll yell. Why? That’s what you want, but that doesn’t make it real, nor does it make you good or decent. 

“At what moment are we opposed to legal challenges? There’s a moment where they will end. The electors will show up on December 14th to vote. Could things go sideways with that? I guess so.

“You’re opposed to a hand recount in Georgia? You’re the reason we do hand recounts, Democrats. The people who don’t want to do a recount are the very reason you do a recount.”
