Byron York tells Fetterman campaign to ‘observe the law’ as lawsuit comes late

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York blasted Pennsylvania senate candidate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman for his last-ditch effort to get more votes for himself counted.

Fetterman’s campaign has filed a lawsuit against the state’s election officials in federal court in order to get a judge to allow ballots that are misdated or missing dates completely. Roughly 3,500 voters in Philadelphia, which also trends Democratic, have at least one of four problems on their mail-in ballot, including missing a signature on the outer envelope, missing a date on the outer envelope, giving an incorrect date on the outer envelope, or sending in a “naked ballot.”

“The issue of whether you have to correctly date a ballot is whether that is being nitpicky or not that is something that you have to decide before Election Day,” York said Tuesday on The Story with Martha MacCallum. “Once Election Day comes around, it seems it’s time to observe what is in the law.”

York also pointed out that Fetterman’s campaign retained lawyer Mark Elias, “a legendary figure” and “Democratic lawyer in terms of elections.”

“He helped change a lot of state election laws in 2020, using the pandemic as a pretext to change a lot of laws on terms that made it more favorable to Democrats,” York said, adding, “He’s most favorite among Republicans that commissioned the Steele Dossier, which they view as one of the worst dirty tricks around.”
