(HARRISBURG) – The Senate State Government Committee announced Wednesday it will review the state’s election results as a way to restore trust in the vote. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25), Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-34) and Senator John DiSanto (R-15), chair of the Senate State Government Committee, issued the following statement:
“The votes in Pennsylvania are still being counted and the election has not been certified. As the process for finalizing election results continues in Pennsylvania, the Senate State Government Committee will immediately undertake a thorough review of the state’s election in order to instill confidence in the results. We will continue our fight to uphold Pennsylvania law and the Constitution to ensure that faith in our election system is restored.
“In the days and weeks leading up to the election, PA Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar repeatedly violated the state’s election code even beyond the PA Supreme Court orders. As we have said time and again, we will not allow the dangerous precedents set by Secretary Boockvar to go unchallenged.”
