A Senator in Pennsylvania is preparing to ask a panel of chair members for the authority to issue subpoenas which would compel counties across the state to cooperate with his effort to investigate the results of the 2020 election.
Pennsylvania Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican who chairs the state Senate’s Intergovernmental Operations Committee, explained his pitch to One America News earlier this week. “We’re eagerly awaiting my committee coming together when I can get a quorum, get everyone’s calendars matched up—it is summertime. As soon as I get a quorum, we will have a meeting, we will vote on subpoenas, and let the fun begin.”
Mastriano initiated a forensic probe into the 2020 and 2021 elections earlier this month “by sending requests for materials like ballots and asking for access to machines, to Tioga, York, and Philadelphia counties,” per an NTD report. However, officials in all of the counties are refusing to comply with Mastriano’s requests, which prompted the need for subpoenas.
“Philadelphia County’s participation in your proposed analysis would be duplicative of extensive efforts already undertaken by the Philadelphia County Board of Elections, the Pennsylvania Department of State, state and federal courts, and your colleagues in the Pennsylvania State Senate. Participation could also impair our ability to operate fair and secure elections in Philadelphia,” Lisa Deeley, a Democrat commissioner, wrote in a July 30 letter to Mastriano.
