PA State Senator Doug Mastriano Kicks Off Forensic Audit – Says He Plans To Seek Subpoena Power Should Counties Not Comply

( Exclusive) – Pennsylvania State Senator and patriot Doug Mastriano was among those from the Keystone State to visit and tour the Arizona forensic audit and now he’s leading the audit efforts in Pennsylvania.

He’s not calling it a “forensic audit” however, he says it will be much deeper.

Mastriano sent out letters to several counties, including Philadelphia, York and Tioga counties, requesting information and materials that he said will enable an investigation to begin.

“It’s distinct from an audit or forensic audit. It’s a big deep dive, like we saw in Arizona, but even deeper,” Mastriano told The Epoch Times.

“It takes a hard look at software, machine, scanners, in addition to looking at all the ballots themselves to see if they were hand-filled-in or copied by a machine. So a scientific approach to get to the bottom of what happened, what went right, what went wrong in an election. It takes out all bias.”

You would think state Democrats would be on board but naturally, they are not.

The counties contacted by Sen. Mastriano were asked to send in hard copies of ballots and other election material but Mastriano is expecting resistance and has said he is gearing up to request subpoena power from his committee should counties refuse to comply by July 31.

Resistance is already being seen in Philadelphia County, which should surprise no one. Philadelphia has been a center of fraud and corruption for years now.

A deputy for Democrat Philadelphia Commissioner Omar Sabir told the Epoch Times that Sabir believes the election was run freely and securely and said that commissioners are consulting with the city’s law department on the request.

Nick Custodio, a deputy for Democrat Philadelphia Commissioner Lisa Deely, said that her office is currently reviewing the requests.

“We do want to be clear, however, that Senator Mastriano’s letter reiterates claims about the November 2020 election that have been resoundingly rejected by courts. The repetition of baseless claims by elected officials poses a real challenge to our democratic processes. We are committed to continuing the hard work of ensuring that Philadelphians are able to exercise their right to vote,” he said in an email.

If that’s the truth then what’s the harm in the State Senate doing an investigation? Why not comply? The only reason why Democrats continue to insist that the fraud claims from the 2020 election have been “rejected by courts” is to hide the truth.

The truth is that the claims were not rejected by the courts at all but were rather not even heard or considered by the courts. Democrats in the state are patently lying and their motive is clear.

In an op-ed published by various news outlets (screen shots here and here), Mastriano laid out the case for an investigation into the 2020 election, noting that in 2020 there were 2.7 million mail-in ballots counted in comparison to just 263,000 in 2016. He also pointed out that many of these ballots were counted without signature verification.

“It would defy logic to assume that an election with the kinds of drastic changes we saw in 2020 was run perfectly with zero errors or fraud,” he said.

Despite the fact that an investigation into the election is perfectly legal and justified, PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro has vowed to do everything he can to stand in the way.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Shapiro valiantly said he is “absolutely confident” that he could stop an audit or investigation.

Once again, it’s truly telling how zealous Democrats are to stop any efforts by Republicans to get to the truth about the 2020 election. It’s clear they want to keep the truth hidden in order to protect the fraudulent Biden regime.
