Bucks County Election Case Before Commonwealth Court

Bucks County Election Case Before Commonwealth Court — A hearing Wednesday, April 5, in Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court concerned the interpretation of a state law stemming from election challenges filed in Bucks County.

What was in dispute was an apparent conflict between Section 1701 and Section 1703 of Article XVII of the Pennsylvania Election Code.

Section 1701 allows for three qualified voters of a district to demand the “ballot box” be opened “upon information which they consider reliable, they believe that fraud or error, although not manifest on the general return of votes, was committed.”

The respondents, which were the Bucks County Bureau of Elections and the Pennsylvania Department of State, argued that Section 1703 says that for elections that covered more than one district — which would be all elections except for Judges of Elections and similar offices — a petition would have to be filed in each district requiring three voters from each district and the placing of a bond. The bonds in a state-wide race would require several million dollars.

Section 1703 says “a recount or recanvass shall include all election districts in which ballots were cast for the office in question.”

Opening a single machine on suspicion is obviously not recounting an entire race. Improprieties one machine, however, could and should lead to investigating other machines, and a recount. Rigged ballots in one place are prima facie evidence of a stolen election, and the residency and bond requirements would not apply.

Attorney Andrew Teitelman, who was working pro bono, argued for 111 Bucks County residents who saw troubling events in the 2022 elections. Many filed pro se petitions to start things.

A decision is pending. Any decision will not affect the results of the election but would provide clarity for the future.

And we have been told that the Department of State did not insert itself in the case until two days prior to the hearing.

The hearing can be watched here.

Abortion Pill Causes Dangerous Pregnancy Complications; Body Parts Not Necessarily Expelled; Dangerous And Toxic

Abortion Pill Causes Dangerous Pregnancy Complications; Body Parts Not Necessarily Expelled; Dangerous And Toxic — Jessica of Montgomery County -based ProLIfeNews interviewed in February retired Superior Court Judge Cheryl Allen, who now serves as counsel for PA Family.

Among the subjects is how the ease in which abortion pills are now distributed is causing serious complications for many young women.

She noted one little discussed consequence in the unremitting encouragement of their use is ‘retained products of conception.’

“Which really means baby parts,” she said. “These pills are supposed to expel . . . the fetus but there’s no guarantee that every part of the baby’s body is expelled. Any part that is not expelled from the woman’s body can be very dangerous and toxic”

Medical authorities claim it is safe to take these pills up to 10 weeks in a pregnancy. Prescriptions are required to get them but they may be obtained via telemedicine which means there is no physical examination. Many of those getting these prescriptions are immature and/or poorly educated.

Without a physical examine and a certainty as to how advanced is the pregnancy, the likelihood of a bad outcome is far, far higher.

Since the interview, Walgreen’s Pharmacy has announced that it will not distribute abortion medication in 20 states.

“For someone to be able to get a prescription like this without a physical examination, is really dangerous,” Judge Allen said.

In another matter, she said the University of Pittsburgh has no intentions of stopping experimentation on aborted fetuses even if it means losing state funding.

She said that if state funding is cut off from Pitt, it is prepared to go back to being a private university as it was before 1966. No tears here if that happens.

Poprik Claims She Can’t Fill Committee Vacancies

Poprik Claims She Can’t Fill Committee Vacancies — Bucks County GOP Chairwoman Patricia Poprik told PhillyBurbs.com that grassroots activists are lying about how she is purposely leaving committee seats vacant to maintain power.

Poprik Claims She Cant Fill Committee Vacancies
If you can’t cook, get out of the kitchen

She said she has been desperately tying to fill the 200 or so vacancies but nobody wants to step in.

Andy Meehan, the leader of the rebellious faction, says he would have no problem filling them.

Hey Pat, if you can’t fill them and he says he can why not give him the chance? It’s all about strengthening the party, right? If you can get the people elected who will protect the county from impoverishment and servitude, you don’t care about being the boss, right?

Bucks County GOP Counterfeit Bylaws Mystery

Bucks County GOP Counterfeit Bylaws Mystery — The Bucks County GOP stands accused of having organized using a counterfeit set of bylaws.

Republicans opposed to Chairwoman Patricia Poprik filed a complaint with the party’s Ethics Committee, Jan. 10, accusing the leadership of misdeeds including subversion of bylaws, wrongful appointments of committeepeople, proxy irregularities at the June 25 reorganization meeting in which Ms. Poprik nearly lost her job, and the falsification of government documents.

The latter concerned the bylaws on file with the county.

The county demands of organizations that use the county voting machines a set of their bylaws.

The rebel faction found that the ones held by the Board of Elections were produced with a word processor despite having a June 26, 1972 filing date. Further, they weren’t hand-signed albeit the signature of then chairman C.V. Afferback was stylishly set in an italic font.

So the party bosses get the complaint. The rebels go back for another look at the bylaws on file and lo and behold, they had been replaced with the original typewritten ones with C.V.’s very own penmanship.

The only significant difference that we could find was the removal of a paragraph in Rule VI, Article 4 relating to the party headquarter building.

So why was the document switched out in the first place? Why did they keep the original ready to be switched back? It seems more Burn-After-Reading stupid than nefarious but who knows.

And its stupidity that loses elections.

And this document shuffling still violates, well, the bylaws.

If it gets rid of Pat it works for us.

Here are the typewritten and word processor versions of the bylaws.

Narrow D Win In Bucks County

Narrow D Win In Bucks County

By Bob Small

F. Todd Polinchock, a two term GOP incumbent lost in the November election.  One of his many issues was tougher gun legislation and other anti-crime measures.  He also wanted greater energy production.

He is a pro life supporter. 

He is a Realtor.

The Democrat winner, Brian Munroe had 16,123 votes to Polinchock’s 15,608 or 50.8 percent. A victory but hardly a mandate.

Narrow D Win In Bucks County
Brian Munroe

PA house district 144 consists of 5 areas in Bucks County. Since it’s creation in 1969, all the State House representatives had been Republican.

Munroe has been an emergency medical technician and a Radnor Police officer. He was also a volunteer firefighter.  He is a US Navy Veteran.

Among his signature positions are pro-choice, Green Jobs, increasing healthcare coverage, and a iving wage. He has also come out for free community college. For other positions, see his website.

Reviewing the five PA House incumbents who lost, four of them were GOP.  Some of this was due to redistricting and some may have been the statewide candidates at the top of the ticket.

Or maybe something else.

Like in many political setbacks, there are lessons to be learned by more astute minds than mine.

Dawn Bancroft Story Of An Insurrectionist

Dawn Bancroft Story Of An Insurrectionist — Dawn Bancroft crawled through a broken window of the Capitol, took a video, then crawled back out again. Her life might not have changed if that was it. On the way home, though, she made another in which she said “We were looking for Nancy to blow her friggin’ brains out, but we didn’t find her.”

She sent it to a friend and the friend sent it to the FBI.

It was Jan. 6, 2021.

She was 59 years old, the divorced mother of three children, and the owner of Cross Fit Sine-Pari, a gym in Doylestown that she started in 2009.

Dawn Bancroft Story Of An Insurrectionist
Dawn Bancroft not defeated

What ensued was the loss of her business, the loss of friends, the loss of her accountant, the loss of her bank, a conviction of the misdemeanor of parading in the Capitol, and a 60-day sentence along with three years probation and 100 hours of community service all capped with a lecture from the pompous and partisan federal Judge Emmet Sullivan.

What Ms. Bancroft did can’t be defended and she doesn’t try, but on the grand scale of evil it’s just not up there with bombing weddings and schools and bragging about it, or body-slamming a U.S. senator you dislike nearly killing him. Rene Boucher, by the way, was initially sentenced to less time than Ms. Bancroft for his attack on Rand Paul, albeit that was raised to eight months after outraged prosecutors objected. Boucher still served less than a lot of the Jan. 6 protestors, though.

Ms. Bancroft, who was never in trouble with the law, expected to serve her time in a halfway house or minimum security prison. Instead she was sent to the federal correctional facility in Hazelton, W.Va., a medium security prison.

She was 60 years old.

She said was strip searched twice upon arrival and her first 10 days were served in the Secure Housing Unit or SHU which is solitary confinement.

She was held in a 8-by-10 foot cell. It was cold and her clothing was thin, similar to a medical scrub with short sleeves. She was forbidden to sleep on the bed during waking hours and the blanket was required to be kept folded upon it.

Guards ignored her when she sought their attention albeit one responded with abuse when she caught her laying on the bed in the daytime.

There were no clocks in her cell. She asked why and the guard said “I don’t know.”

She said “I don’t know” was the answer the guards always gave.

She said when she became anxious she’d pray the rosary.

“I would pray the rosary using my fingers in place of the beads for I was not allowed an actual rosary,” she said. “I always became more calm at the conclusion of the session.”

She was not allowed to contact her family. She learned, though, that her daughter was calling every morning as was a friend in the evening. As the two shared a first name, prison authorities assumed it was the same person and a real pest.

This was a good thing, at least for Ms. Bancroft.

The prison limited phone calls to once every 30 days but one of the guards volunteered to contact the caller. She ended up contacting the friend to whom she made up a story about what a great time Ms. Bancroft was having.

And when she was transferred to the general population things improved. The other inmates liked her. One woman saw she was into fitness and asked to train with her.

Her new friends would ask what she was in for and were shocked when she told them it was for “parading”. The population, after all, included murderers, and child abductors, including one who with her boyfriend abducted two Amish children and sexually abused them. When the boyfriend went for a shovel with the intent to kill and bury them, she got cold feet and drove off with the children abandoning them in a corn field. They survived.

Ms. Bancroft pledged not to let the state break her.

And they didn’t.

She learned about “fishing” which is unraveling thread from a blanket and tying it to a folded up piece of toilet paper roll and using it to slide small objects between cells. She said an inmate sent her a stamp that way after she heard her worrying about how to contact her family.

She wrote a letter to her son and sent it to her home as that was the address with the only zip code that she could remember. Her son was picking up her mail.

She’d watch Fox News as that was one of the few news options they had. She thinks it leans a little too much to the left just not as much as the others. Others would watch with her. She’d have political debates with them. She says she converted many Democrats into Trump Republicans.

Terms of her probation have prevented her from contacting the women who remain at Hazleton but they are in her thoughts as are those still incarcerated without bail for the January 6 protests.

Prison reform has become an issue for her as a result of her experiences.

Ms. Bancroft says the Bucks County Republican Party has removed her from her committeewoman’s seat in the 2-2 Precinct in Doylestown, a seat which she won last spring with the voters having full knowledge of her involvement in the protests.

Regarding Jan. 6, she says she saw one incident that may have involved provocateurs where a group on some scaffolding was trying to break windows in the Capitol and the crowd below objecting accusing them of being Antifa.

Political Favoritism Beat Down By Bucks County Patriots

Political Favoritism Beat Down By Bucks County Patriots — Audrey Strein has been hosting “street rallies” on Almshouse Road in Doylestown, Pa. since 2009 starting with the Kitchen Table Patriots.

This is where a group stands on a sidewalk with signs to get the attention of passersby.

Always her group used the Bucks County Health and Human Service lot for parking.

At a November 2020 rally for Donald Trump, she was told the lots were forbidden to her. She shrugged, and her group parked in a Giant supermarket down the street and walked back.

It was a little annoying as a Biden group had just been allowed to use the Bucks County Courthouse grounds for a rally the same day.

It was suggested to her that she file a right-to-know request to find out why the change in policy. The response was the request couldn’t be fulfilled as the lots had no parking restrictions.

Fast forward two years and Audrey contacts Doylestown police and lets them know her group would be using the lots, today, Oct. 22 for a rally for Republican candidates. Police called her back to inform her that Bucks County Commissioner Diane Marseglia said they were not allowed.

This time she acted. She sent numerous letters to the responsible officials, and told them she would sue each and everyone of them personally for a violation of the First Amendment if they didn’t let them.

“Well, son of . . .,” to quote our President. They let them.

She said this morning’s rally was a great success.

Great job Audrey and Bucks patriots.

Bucks RINOs Want Dawn Bancroft Gone

Bucks RINOs Want Dawn Bancroft Gone — The Bucks County RINO establishment is doing it’s darnedest to remove one of the committeewoman who voted to fire Pat Proprik as party chairwoman in the county GOP’s June 25 reorganization meeting.

Dawn Bancroft won the Precinct 2-2 committee race in Doylestown Borough the month before, beating a last minute entry from Ms. Poprik who is petrified of losing power.

Dawn is a well-known martyr of Jan. 6 and the Republican residents of the district picked her knowing full well her background.

Dawn has been convicted of the misdemeanor of “parading” for the events of that day and is scheduled to begin a 60-day sentence in the medium security prison in Hazelton, W. Va. on Sept. 6.

She will be back for the Nov. 8 election, however.

The problem, however, is that Poprik faction is trying to use Dawn’s reputation as a rebel against the empire to remove her from her elected position and replace her with a minion.

Will they succeed?

That’s the real question. If they do though, we suspect she will be back like Obi-Wan even stronger than before.

Pat Poprik Nearly Bucked In Bucks

Pat Poprik Nearly Bucked In Bucks — Barry Casper almost upset long-time Chairwoman Pat Poprik in yesterday’s (June 25) election of officers for the Bucks County Republican Committee.

It was the first challenge to a county party chairman in memory.

Casper got about 140 votes. It was uncertain how many Ms. Poprik received. There are 608 committee seats and just over 400 votes were cast. There were 111 committeepeople elected in the May primary. Soon after, however, Ms. Poprik filled more than 50 others via appointments.

The election included heated procedural disputes and those running things appeared oblivious to Roberts Rules of Order.

The disputes were such that Ms. Poprik pledged to convene a committee to address changing the party bylaws. This was also something that had not occurred in memory and Casper conveyed that this was a step in the right direction.

The votes were taken by roll call. Many of those voting depend on the party for jobs.

Also one voter, Mike Brill, cast 45 proxy votes, while another cast 35.

The Casper faction’s goals are described on BucksFirst.com.

After the vote, Casper congratulated Ms. Poprik and both agreed to work together for the November election.

Casper has been tasked to oversee the Doug Mastriano gubernatorial campaign in Bucks, along with Liz Diehl, Audrey Strein, and Roni Arooj.

A grassroots earthquake is being felt throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
