- Earlier today, House Speaker Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) and Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-Centre) called on Gov. Tom Wolf to audit the pending results of the 2020 election. In response, the York County House Republican Delegation consisting of House Appropriations Chair Stan Saylor (R-Red Lion) and Reps. Kate Klunk (R-Hanover), Seth Grove (R-Dover), Dawn Keefer (R-Dillsburg) and Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam), issued the following statement:
“We agree with and applaud Speaker Cutler and Leader Corman for their call for oversight of our election process. No matter the outcome, we must ensure the integrity of the election. We must ensure that every legal vote is counted and recorded correctly.
“The 2020 election is undoubtedly the most unique election all of us have seen in our lifetimes. Numerous questions have been raised about the process, which was muddied by the state Supreme Court’s interference in how the election was to be conducted and conflicting guidance from the Department of State. Since before the election, our offices have been inundated with calls from constituents with valid concerns about the election process.
“Free and fair elections are a staple of this country and our Commonwealth. We must not and cannot allow for any deviation from that. We must guarantee the results, and the process to reach the election results, are valid. This would be done through proper oversight via an audit of all election results.”
