Breaking News: Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano Says Legislature Will Seek Joint Resolution to Appoint the Presidential Electors


Could this be the constitutional path for a Trump victory?

While speaking with Steve Bannon’s War Room, Doug Mastriano broke the news that the PA legislature will draft a joint resolution to take the power back from the Secretary of State to appoint the state’s presidential electors.

That power was stolen from the state legislature in 1938 and they intend to take it back from the corrupt Democrat Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf.

If the PA House & Senate leadership takes up the joint resolution, this changes the entire ball game.

This could set a precedent that would almost surely apply to other contested states.

The Election Wizard broke down what this means for deciding Pennsylvania’s electors.

National File broke it down into further detail:

Mastriano explained to Bannon that in 1938, the Pennsylvania General Assembly gave the authority to select delegates to the Electoral College to the Secretary of State. “Assuming the election is fair,” the delegates would “naturally go to that person.” He noted that if the election isn’t fair, the state would be handing the power to the “same party that cheated.”

Bannon, shocked to hear the news, interrupted the Senator, saying:

“Hold it, I think we have some breaking news here. You’re saying you’re going to get a joint resolution to actually go forward, and the Republicans control the House and the Senate, to go forward to basically take the power back from the Secretary of State and put it in the state legislature to put forward the electors?”

Mastriano responded: “That’s exactly what we are going to do.”

SIGN THE PETITION: We Need National Voter ID!

The Senator elaborated, noting that backlash will ensue and the Governor will ultimately disagree with the decision, including the Secretary of State, Kathy Boockvar, who Mastriano thinks should’ve resigned “months ago” and that she “should’ve never been confirmed.”

“There is so much evidence of shenanigans and fraud, and we can’t stand aside and just watch this unfold around us here. You know, it’s not about disenfranchising anybody, it’s making sure every legal vote counted and if there is extensive shenanigans out there, it’s up to the General Assembly to step in. So we have a fight in our hands, and we’re going to fight, we’re going to take that fight all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to.”

Mastriano tells Bannon that there are 50 “voices” in the Senate, with 29 of them being “Republican or independent caucuses with us.” He adds that “all we need, you know, are 16 in the Senate, really, to influence the leadership.” The Senator believes that Republicans in the state legislature are “getting motivated” and that “momentum” is building to move forward and do “the right thing.”

“We can’t certify an election result that appears to be corrupted” said Mastriano.

This could be the turning point in the election that tips the scales in Trump’s favor.

Stay tuned folks, we’re in for a wild ride!
