    Though Hillary Clinton lost Pennsylvania by a smaller margin than reported on election night, the race still isn’t close enough to trigger an automatic statewide recount of the votes, according to new figures. Nearly three weeks after the election, the City of Philadelphia has finished counting votes, including absentee and provisional ballots. Those totals significantly cut Clinton’s loss in Pennsylvania to President-elect Donald Trump, who amassed a mere 46,000 votes more than the Democratic nominee. More than five million people across the state voted in this election. That’s a difference of about 0.8 percent. In Pennsylvania, votes must be recounted...

    Updated 5:30 p.m. — As of close of business on Monday, the Philadelphia Board of Elections had received petitions from 74 (out of more than 1,600) divisions. Updated 3:45 p.m. — Jill Stein officially filed a lawsuit in a bid to force all of Pennsylvania’s votes to be recounted. Jill Stein’s effort to recount presidential votes in three swing states already appears to be sputtering in Philadelphia. While Stein, a former presidential candidate, has raised millions of dollars and filed for a recount in Wisconsin, the process in Pennsylvania is much more complicated. Candidates cannot file for a recount themselves....

    An accused child rapist and Dominican national was released out of custody by Philadelphia police, ignoring federal immigration officials’ request to hand over the man. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a news release describing how 40-year-old Winston Enrique Perez Pilarte, also known as Josue Duran-Cortes, was released by Philadelphia officials back in 2015 after failing to “honor” their detainer on Pilarte. “After confirming his identity using biometric data, an ICE detainer was lodged against Perez Pilarte while he was detained at the Philadelphia Curran Fromhold Correctional Facility in July 2015,” ICE stated in the release. “On Nov. 25, 2015,...

    Democrats are “making a big bet and a mistaken one” by defying the federal government to protect their city’s “sanctuary” status, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” Wednesday. "Sanctuary cities were a scandal before Trump. It’s in defiance of federal authority,” Krauthammer said. President-elect Donald Trump pledged to withhold federal funds from cities that protect illegal immigrants from possible deportation—and Krauthammer said he’s well within his rights to do so. “The people who did this in the past were the racists in the south who defied federal authority on civil rights, so now it’s...

    The city’s crippling weeklong transit strike ended early Monday, ensuring that all buses, trolleys and subways will be up and running by Election Day. […] Democratic city leaders had feared the strike could weaken turnout at the polls on Tuesday and hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who needs a big haul of votes in the city if she is to win the battleground state instead of Republican Donald Trump. The big concern was people were spending so much time getting to and from work that some wouldn't have time to go to the polls. …

    In a blow to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a U.S. judge on Thursday upheld a Pennsylvania state law that could make it difficult for his supporters to monitor Election Day activity in Democratic-leaning areas. Trump has repeatedly said that the Nov. 8 presidential election may be rigged, and has urged supporters to keep an eye out for signs of voting fraud in Philadelphia and other heavily Democratic areas. Democrats worry that could encourage Trump supporters to harass Hispanics, African-Americans and other minority voters in a state that could determine whether Trump or his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, wins the...

The two sides have been in talks for months in order to work out the details of a deal. A major strike could effect voters on Election Day if the walkout runs past Nov. 8.

The Republican nominee has insisted, without evidence, that dead people and undocumented immigrants are voting in the United States.

He said there is no way to know how many non-citizens might be registered to vote in Philadelphia, let alone in...

    When Democratic Convention delegate Gwen Snyder went to this year’s convention in Philadelphia she never expected to by sexually accosted by anyone, let alone a fellow delegate. When she was sexually molested by the male delegate Snyder expected to be treated with respect and have her complaint taken seriously by Democrat District Attorney Seth Williams’ office. That is exactly what did not happen. The determined Snyder called the Special Victims Unit in the belief that since she was the victim of a crime she had only to follow instructions to get justice. She was taken to the august sounding Philadelphia...

    When Muslim Philadelphia resident Nadia Kamal stepped into an Advance America Cash Advance center wearing a hijab, she was told to remove it because, as the sign below says, hats and sunglasses were not allowed in the facility. According to the store’s employees, this policy was instituted in response to criminals trying rob the place while their faces were covered. However, this did not matter to Kamal, who felt “hurt” that the employees wanted her to violate Islamic law. “I’m in a public place … I cannot do that,” she told them before she stormed out of the facility and...

    Any political convention will bring protesters. However, those at the Democratic National Convention might very well take the prize for head-scratching, eye-popping and, most notably, nose-pinching moments.
