FAST FIVE: Pennsylvania Supreme Court Dismisses GOP-Trump Win; Next Stop, US Supreme Court
In interpreting the legislative power within the context of selecting Presidential Electors, the Supreme Court of the United States has held, “What is forbidden or required to be done by a state is forbidden or required of the legislative power under the state constitutions as they exist.” McPherson v.
[(1) work; (2) illness; (3) physical disability; (4) the election occurring on a religious holiday; or (5) a person's election-day duties themselves preventing the person from voting in person.] This may constitute a viable federal question for the Supreme Court of the United States to intervene.
And while McPherson dates from 1892, its rationale is sound, and the Court has cited it as recently as 2015.
But this much, at least, seems clear to me: the Pennsylvania mail-in voting law is unconstitutional.
Charges of unfairness are serious.
