Pennsylvania Judge Halts Further Vote Certification Steps

A Pennsylvania judge issued an order preventing the state from taking additional steps to certify its election results until she holds a hearing on Friday morning.

 

The ruling on Wednesday by Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia McCullough in Pittsburgh halts the process “to the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election.” Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar certified President-elect Joe Biden’s 80,555-vote Pennsylvania victory yesterday, and Governor Tom Wolf appointed electors for the state. Boockvar and Wolf are both Democrats.

 

The case before McCullough is separate from the federal lawsuit by President Donald Trump’s campaign that seeks to undo Pennsylvania’s certification unless it tosses out tens of thousands of mail-in ballots the suit alleges are illegal. The state case was brought by Pennsylvania Republicans led by U.S. Representative Mike Kelly, who sought to derail certification by arguing that the state’s expansion of mail-in voting was illegal.

Nobody’s counting ‘chickens’ it’s votes and Biden has millions more votes and more than enough electoral votes.    

Trump is simply extending this as long as he can...just as he did with his business bankruptcies...so he can bilk more people out of money. By stopping payments on his casino debts, he forced the bank

I've said it from the beginning.  Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

I don't really get this.  If "Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar certified President-elect Joe Biden’s 80,555-vote Pennsylvania victory yesterday" what does "halts the process to the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election" even mean?  How can there be any further action to halt something that has already happened?
