The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is now a “very real possibility” to become the next U.S. state to undertake an independent election audit in the aftermath of a contentious 2020 election.
“The Pennsylvania state senator in charge of a key election committee is backing an audit of the November presidential contest similar to Arizona’s partisan ballot review, four days after former President Donald Trump called him out and claimed he was dragging his feet,” TribLive reported.
“Senate State Government Committee Chairman Dave Argall, R-Schuylkill, told the Capital-Star that he was considering subpoenas for ballot information, but had not considered which jurisdictions would be subpoenaed yet,” the Capital Star also reported.
“There are a lot of things under consideration right now, and I told them to check back in a week or two and we hope to have some more detail,” Argall told the Capital-Star.
“Do I have 100% confidence … that everything was perfect? No, I’d really like us to take a detailed review of that,” Argall added. “That’s why we’re looking at changing pieces of the election legislation, and it’s also why I think it wouldn’t hurt at all to go back, do that audit, and say, ‘How exactly did that work out?'”
