Congressman Posey files amicus brief supporting lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s election ballots

Published on

Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) is one of 28 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives who filed an amicus brief supporting Rep. Mike Kelly’s case challenging the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s no-excuse mail-in ballot voting, according to a news release from Kelly’s office Thursday.

Rep. Kelly and the other plaintiffs allege the Pennsylvania Legislature and Gov. Tom Wolf violated the state’s Constitution when they approved no-excuse mail-in voting. They claim it conflicts with the Constitution’s definition of what makes a person eligible to vote by mail.

A Commonwealth Court Judge issued an emergency preliminary injunction in the case, but the Commonwealth appealed the case to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Kelly said the state Supreme Court dismissed the case on a technicality without addressing their merits. He and the plaintiffs have filed to argue the case before the U.S. Supreme Court, but it has not decided whether to take up the case.

The Congress members who signed the brief include Alex Mooney (R- W.Va.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Andy Harris (R-Md.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Chip Roy (R-Texas), Dan Bishop (R-N.C.), Dan Meuser (R-Pa.), Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.), Fred Keller (R-Pa.), GT Thompson (R-Pa.), Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), Dr. John Joyce (R-Pa.), Lloyd Smucker (R-Pa.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Michael Cloud (R-Texas), Mike Johnson (R- La.), Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), Randy Weber (R-Texas), Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) and Warren Davison (R-Ohio).
