Skip to comments.Pa. Lt. Gov. Fetterman says GOP 'put a Grubhub order in for chaos' after the election

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman said that the chaos of the post-election period has been orchestrated by the Republican Party, but dismissed the notion that anything will stop the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
The Republican Party “put a Grubhub order in for chaos, and that’s exactly what they got delivered,” Fetterman, a Democrat, said in a Monday interview with Yahoo News.
He blamed Republicans in the Pennsylvania Legislature for refusing to give election officials any time before Election Day to “pre-canvass” mail ballots, which would have meant they could open the outer envelope, check for signatures and prepare the ballots for counting. That would have eliminated the three days of counting after the Nov. 3 election that took place in Pennsylvania, and in Michigan as well.
A host of election experts from all political points of view echoed the request from Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar that election officials be allowed to pre-canvass mail ballots before Election Day, but Republicans “never would allow it,” Fetterman said.
“You knew it wasn’t going to ever happen. Ever. You just knew it. And it’s like, OK, this is what you wanted. So here’s what you’re going to get,” he said. “It worked as far as, you know, their plans where they wanted to create this delay, but it doesn’t change the outcome at all.”

How about explaining to us how Biden overcame an 800,000 Trump lead in Pennsylvania (source: Rush Limbaugh) AFTER the polls were closed with 80% of the vote counted?
If it looks like FRAUD, smells like FRUAD, acts like FRAUD then it is.
Fetterman is part of the Pa. freak show along with Rachel (or Richard)Lavine.
This is actually good news. The Biden Fraud isn’t selling, and it never will.
Fetterman is an Ivy League graduate that tries to look like a biker. What his IS is a stone Marxist.
These Democrat hacks are shamelessly and willfully ignorant of PA law, Federal law, and the U.S. Constitution.
Pre-canvassing is illegal in PA. That’s why the GOP opposed it. And Fetterman knows that.
His mommy beat him with the ugly stick. I understand he has a close relationship with the Secretary of Health.
Well it’s certainly a mess no matter how anyone cuts this. Which unfortunately the Demorat pigs love to drag Americans through.
Actually they have no concern of keeping laws.....their game is abusing law.
“The Biden Fraud isn’t selling, and it never will.“
Even tucker admitted it. That’s like chuck Todd or don lemon.
Sorry cheaters. We ain’t buying your BS. You cheated big time and will feel the wrath in the end.
Caveman says ‘Fire Hot”. And he is liable to be Wolfs replacement too. Fetterman only claim is legalizing pot. The town he was mayor of looks like Stalingrad after the Germans gave up.
What a shortsighted fool..........Explains Pa.’s predicament......
Is that supposed to sound creative?
You can say that precanvassing wasn’t allowed in PA, but voters in some (conveniently Dem-leaning) municipalities were sent notifications to come in and “cure” their incomplete or incorrectly submitted mail in ballots based on what was included on the exterior envelope. (Amazingly, those people who just absolutely needed to submit their votes via mail because they were afeared of the Rona had no problem standing in long lines in the days ahead of election day to follow up with their ballots). Other municipalities followed the letter of the law and didn’t notify voters. I’m all for people who want to vote getting their vote counted, but if you only allow bureaucrats to put a thumb on the scale of elections by selectively helping voters in some places and not everywhere, it’s not a free and fair election.
PA is going to stay messed up for a while. Unless the democrat politicians in the legislature start feeling the pressure to break ranks once in a while and override the governor’s veto when appropriate (like, say, when the governor decides to assert the power to close small businesses on their most profitable days of the year with nearly zero notice), a majority in the legislature doesn’t do much of anything other than keep gridlock in place. The PA Supreme Court is completely off kilter (in part because of its own doing), and will stay that way forever unless the legislature does something about the timing of the terms for justices so a big clump of justices aren’t all being elected at once.
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
The democrat machine placed the order, thinking that the republican delivery service would fail to show up, as usual.
Fetterman shouldn't be a serious contender for Governor, but we're not living in serious times. Watching how entitled and pathetic the Corbett campaign was in 2014, and how the state GOP sat on its hands with Wagner as a candidate in 2018, I wouldn't be surprised if the next Republican nominee ends up being just as bad and poorly supported. Fetterman is a whole lot more clever and focused than his Neanderthal looks would let on, and he's probably one of the best off the cuff speakers and retail politicians that the dems have in the state, but he's also a socialist, pot pusher (which isn't necessarily unpopular in the state, but it's got a ceiling on its appeal), and he likes to flout convention by dressing like a jiffy lube mechanic for official government events.
