The Pennsylvania Supreme Court split along partisan lines last week and handed a pair of victories to Democrat Joe Biden when it OK’ed a three-day deadline extension for mail-in ballots and the use of drop boxes for ballots. Republicans predictably were less than pleased. Even our junior senator played the “Trump card” by arguing the ruling is “lawless” and will cast the election’s legitimacy into doubt.
From where I sit, this looks like another example of the GOP attempting to reduce voter participation by restricting where, when and how folks can cast their votes during the pandemic. And it’s rich to hear the party of voter I.D., racial/partisan gerrymandering, and shuttered polling sites accuse anyone else of trying to rig an election.
