Pennsylvania Department of State Tells Counties Not To Allow Outside Access to Voting Systems

Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, a Republican, said in a response that the directive

“is an attack on the General Assembly’s power to review, investigate, and legislate in matters within its legislative authority, which includes Pennsylvania’s election system.”“The Legislature has clear authority—both statutorily and constitutionally—to provide oversight and issue subpoenas. This directive tramples those rights which were specifically put in place to prevent potential abuses and overreach by the Executive Branch,”

he added.State Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican, added that the directive was an example of a “disturbing pattern” of obstruction and violation of constitutional powers of the Senate by the Wolf administration that dates back to March 2019.
