(PatriotWise.com)- A Pennsylvania mail worker has spoken out about alleged fraud in several battleground states during the 2020 presidential election, saying he was ordered to collect late ballots in the state that could decide the election results. Senate Judiciary Chairman Senator Lindsey Graham, upon seeing the evidence, urged the Department of Justice to immediately begin an investigation into what happened.
USPS worker Richard Hopkins, from Erie, Pennsylvania, said he was told to collect late ballots that appear to have been part of a plan by Postmaster Rob Weisenbach to backdate votes that would otherwise be ineligible. Hopkins didn’t just make the claim but swore that this was true in a signed affidavit.
“Although, as I understand Pennsylvania law, ballots must be postmarked by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 3, 2020 in Pennsylvania, Postmaster Rob Weisenbach directed my co-workers and I to pick up ballots after Election Day and provide them to him,” Hopkins’ affidavit reads.
“I heard Weisenbach tell a supervisor at my office that Weisenbach was back-dating the postmarks on the ballots to make it appear as though the ballots had been collected on November 3, 2020 despite them in fact being collected on November 4 and possibly later,” it adds.
By the way, when the media says “there is no evidence,” sworn affidavits like this are evidence. And this evidence suggests that there was a concerted effort in Pennsylvania to take illegitimate ballots and count them anyway.
Under current election rules in Pennsylvania, ballots can be counted up to three days after election day. However, they must be postmarked as November 3 or before, meaning they were sent on or before election day. This is the issue that will be going to the Supreme Court, as the rules were changed last minute.
Not only does the evidence show that votes sent after election day are being counted, but it’s not even clear that new rules allowing votes received after election day to be counted are legitimate.
Senator Lindsey Graham issued a statement saying that it is “imperative that all credible allegations of voting irregularities and misconduct be investigated.”
He also said that he would be “calling on the Department of Justice to investigate these claims.”
Graham said that he would contact the Postmaster General to request that he also look into the allegations and the ones that may be yet to come, to “help secure the testimony of Mr Hopkins.”
