PA Congress In Chaos, Lawmakers Refuse To Seat Dem Senator, Remove Dem Lt. Gov

It has begun. The American people and honest elected lawmakers are not going to sit idly by while democrats lie, cheat, and steal elections around the country, especially the presidency.

In Pennsylvania today, lawmakers began the battle by refusing to seat a democrat senator and then voting to remove the Lt. Governor, also a democrat.

CBS Pittsburgh reported:

Pennsylvania lawmakers returned to the Capitol on Tuesday to be sworn in for the two-year legislative term, facing a still-raging pandemic and a dispute over seating a Democratic senator, with Republicans holding large majorities in both chambers.

The Senate quickly dissolved into chaos.

Democrats in the Senate began protesting — in some cases, shouting — after the Republican majority refused to seat Sen. Jim Brewster of Allegheny County, a Democrat whose election was certified by the state but is being contested by his Republican challenger, Nicole Ziccarelli.

Republicans then voted on a motion to remove Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, a Democrat, as the presiding officer, after Fetterman insisted that Brewster be seated with the other senators. They then voted through another motion to recognize the election in every Senate contest, except for Brewster’s.

Republicans have not said how long they will take to review Ziccarelli’s election challenge before voting on it, or how long the GOP majority is willing to leave the seat vacant. The open seat does not affect the balance of power in the Senate, where Republicans hold 28 of 50 seats.

Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, has issued this statement on Brewster not being sworn in today:

“Republicans in Pennsylvania and nationally have spread disinformation and used it to subvert the democratic process. [This is a bunch of LIES!] Sen. Jim Brewster rightfully won the 45th Senate District, but Senate Republicans are ignoring the voters in the district and refusing to swear him in as Senator. This is a shameful power grab that disgraces the institution.

“It is simply unethical and undemocratic to leave the district without a voice simply because the Republicans don’t like the outcome of the election. Voters, not Harrisburg politicians, decided this election, and Sen. Brewster is the rightful winner… [blahblahblah]”

[Incidentally, CBS did NOT quote any republicans for the reasons, so supposedly, readers should just guess them. Or, perhaps they could look up the massive voter fraud that occurred in Pennsylvania to see why this was required.]

The state House begins the session with 113 Republican seats and 90 Democratic, although one of those GOP districts is vacant because of the death on Saturday of Westmoreland County Rep. Mike Reese.

The House was to swear in its members in four groups to limit potential coronavirus exposure. Each chamber’s operating rules will also be considered, and House Democrats want mask wearing to be mandatory during floor sessions and committee meetings.

Republican draft rules did not address the mask issue, which could be taken up by a bipartisan group of House leaders that manages chamber operations.

Many experts argue that this is the beginning of the legislative decertifications that will prevent the massive election rig from stealing the election from the American people and President Donald Trump.
