On the last week of November, Republican Leah Hoopes, a poll watcher from Chester, Pennsylvania, testified in front of the Republican Pennsylvania Senate to give her testimony about what she witnessed as a poll watcher during the 2020 election.
According to Hoopes, she was kept in a “playpen” with other observers. More than that, no Republicans were actually allowed to watch the counting of the ballots.
On Sunday, Hoopes revealed that Special Agents from the State’s Attorney General’s office showed up at her house to question her.
“I was at work, and I had gotten a phone call from another observer and witness, my friend Greg who testified in Gettysburg,” Hoopes said during an interview with War Room. “They had shown up to his house, and he had given me a heads up that they were headed to my home.”
“The whole story just didn’t make any sense,” she continued. “They just came completely unannounced. They were, from what they said, investigating voter fraud. I didn’t know if I was being investigated as a criminal or they were genuinely interested in my affidavit and what I saw.”
Things seem to be heating up in Pennsylvania. On Friday, the Pennsylvania judge who ordered the state not to certify the 2020 election results also shared her opinion. They stated that she thinks the Trump campaign is likely to win their case against the state.
Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough said this as she defended her decision to block the Pennsylvania election certification.
Earlier in the week, Republican lawmakers had sued the state, claiming Act 77 — the mail-in voting law — broke the commonwealth’s constitution.
“Petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed on the merits because petitioners have asserted the Constitution does not provide a mechanism for the legislature to allow for expansion of absentee voting without a constitutional amendment,” McCullough explained.
On November 27, Republican lawmakers had claimed that they would not long after be bringing forward a resolution to the dispute regarding the election results.
The resolution “declares that the selection of presidential electors and other statewide electoral contest results in this commonwealth is in dispute” and “urges the secretary of the commonwealth and the governor to withdraw or vacate the certification of presidential electors and to delay certification of results in other statewide electoral contests voted on at the 2020 general election.”
