Justice Alito Orders Pennsylvania To Keep Certain Ballots Aside

Supporters of President Donald Trump have been begging the United States Supreme Court to step in and save the election for their candidate.

We want to state, right at the start of this story, that there has been no evidence produced of any violations of the law or of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

But that is not stopping many on the Republican side from claiming that some shenanigans took place and they just got help from the Supreme Court to, at the very minimum, keep some possibly questionable ballots aside, Fox News reported.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has issued a temporary order requiring Pennsylvania elections officials to segregate ballots received after 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The move grants a GOP request, at least for now, to place the ballots in a secure, sealed container and have them counted separately, if at all.

The Pennsylvania GOP asked the Supreme Court for an emergency order after it was unable to get at least 25 of the county boards to confirm they were already doing that, and Alito agreed.

He declined to address a separate request for an emergency order to stop those ballots from being tallied.

Justice Alito, who was nominated to the court by former President George W. Bush, said that the Supreme Court was not informed of the guidance that was given by state courts on Oct. 28 about ballots received after the Election Day 8 p.m. deadline.

“Justice Alito has issued an Order than any ballots received after after 8pm on election day in PA be segregated and secured – and if counted, counted separately. There is a petition pending before SCOTUS. Alito orders opposing side to reply by 2p Saturday,” Fox News reporter Shannon Bream said.

“PA Dems have just filed their opposition to Alito’s Order with #SCOTUS – say PA GOP offered no “evidence exist that county boards failed to follow” the current directive from the PA Sec of the Comm to segregate/secure votes received after 8p election day,” she said.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who just won a tough campaign to keep his spot in the Senate, said he is standing by President Trump.

“President Trump’s team is going to have a chance to make a case regarding voting irregularities. They deserve a chance to make that case. I’m going to stand with President Trump. If a Democrat were doing this, it’d be cheered on,” he said on a Zoom call with reporters on Friday.

“I ran on two things: that I will be a reliable vote to stop the most radical agenda being pushed by Nancy Pelosi and others in the history of the United States, and I also talked about openly in my campaign at all the debates about how I have reached across the aisle and will continue to do so,” the senator said.

But, he said, if Biden does win the election he would be willing to work with him on certain issues.

“When it comes to finding common ground, I will do that,” he said. “The vice president deserves a cabinet.

“I will give him my input about who I could vote for as secretary of state, attorney general,” Sen. Graham said.

“There may be some people that I just can’t vote for because I think they’re unqualified or too extreme,” the senator said.
