Pennsylvania secretary of state will not order a recount

Pennsylvania’s top elections official confirmed Friday she will not be ordering a recount or recanvass of her state’s election results as Republicans rail against officials there over groundless voter fraud claims.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D) said the races for president, state attorney general, auditor general and state treasurer will not face recounts or recanvasses after unofficial returns submitted by the state’s counties showed no statewide candidate lost by less 0.5 percent, the margin at which such recourses would be triggered.

"We are extremely grateful to all 67 counties who have been working overtime and putting in an extraordinary effort to count every vote, with so far more than 6.8 million votes having been counted," Boockvar said in a statement. "The counties continue to adjudicate and count the approximately 100,000 provisional ballots issued to voters at the polls on Election Day, as well as the more than 28,000 military and overseas ballots that were cast in this election."

With ballots still being cast, Biden currently holds a nearly 60,000-vote lead in the state, a margin that has mushroomed since the state was called for him last weekend and could grow more..........................

2. I almost hate to say it

I'm liking this slow teasing out of the results.

I'm sadistically enjoying watching the denial turn to outrage, the slow breakdown of fascist hopes, the desperate clinging to ever more bizarre and unlikely scenarios that allow Shitstain to stay in the People's house. I'm laughing at the folks on various sites talking up one 'hail mary' after another. Death is a dish best served slowly and in public. Very slowly and very publicly.

It's not over until the electoral College votes on 12/14.

8. At least 10 - 11 entities that are creating vaccines are doing so here in PA

(most of them in the Philly metro area) so we could theoretically tell 45 "No Vaccine for you"!
