For anyone paying attention, the election controversy wasn’t just about ballots and voting machines, it was about election law changes made by officials with no constitutional authority to do so.
As Mark Levin explained on his show in December:
“Fourteen months ago in the state of Pennsylvania, if you sent in a ballot with a signature that didn’t match the signature that they had on file, that would be discarded, if it was counted, that would be criminal fraud. Fourteen months ago in the state of Pennsylvania, if you sent in a ballot beyond election day, it wouldn’t be counted, if it was, that would be fraud. If you sent in a ballot without a postal date stamped on it, it wouldn’t be counted, and if it was, that would be fraud. Or if you sent in a ballot where they couldn’t tell what the date was, if there was a smudge on the ink, it wouldn’t be counted, and if it was counted, that would be fraud,” Levin said. “All of those ballots today count. They were all counted in Pennsylvania because of unconstitutional and illegal changes that were made by officials quote, unquote, ‘officially,’ by individuals in Pennsylvania.” — Townhall
This is the sort of issue that many of those questioning the certification were most interested in… the Constitutional validity of the altered process itself, and whether or not it had been unlawfully subverted by persons without any authority to make such changes.
A social media statement she made last August does little to allay our concerns of her possibly playing partisan dirty pool:
Notorious Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar publicly thanked leftist George Soros-funded organizations VotingWorks and the Brennan Center for Justice for helping audit the state’s primaries and making sure there was no fraud. —WorldTribune
The controversy surrounding the Presidential election results was not the official story behind the resignation of Kathy Boockvar as Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State.
Her bungling of another aspect of her job was the (official) reason she’s stepping down.
Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar is resigning over her office’s failure to advertise a proposed constitutional amendment.
That failure means voters cannot approve a measure this year that would allow victims of child sexual abuse more time to sue their predators.
A key recommendation of the Grand Jury on the sexual abuse of children by priests was straightforward: barred from suing for abuse that happened years ago, the Grand Jury said to give survivors a special two-year period to sue.
A constitutional amendment to allow that was supposed to be on the May ballot, but now that won’t happen.
“The Department of State’s failure to carry out its mandated duties is shameful,” state Attorney General Josh Shapiro told KDKA political editor Jon Delano on Monday.
Someone forgot to advertise the amendment in local newspapers before the last election as required by the state constitution.
Boockvar said she learned of the error last week, took responsibility and offered to resign this Friday, which Governor Tom Wolf accepted.
There are a lot of reasons to be cynical in today’s political environment. Was this just a convenient way to quietly close the door on controversy so that PA voters don’t have a ‘tainted’ official in office being held up as a political lightning rod for 2022? Or was this really just about ‘political accountability’?
With what we’ve seen of the Democrats’ approach to self-policing in recent years, it seems unlikely that they would be super-motivated to have her step down for what amounts to a paperwork snafu. This seems more like a ‘tying up loose ends’ sort of an issue.

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
