Libertarian Dumped On Technicality In State Senate Race

Libertarian Dumped On Technicality In State Senate Race

By Bob Small

The new minor party status that the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania received was said to give them an advantage in special elections, including not having to gather signatures

This year’s first special election is on Jan 31 in the 27th state senatorial district.  The 27th opened up when John Gordner resigned on Nov 30 to become counsel to State Senator Kim Ward who is now the Senate Majority Leader.

The major party candidates are Patricia Lawton (D) and Lynda Schlegel Culver (R), meaning one of them will become the first female 27th District Female Senator.

So it seemed that the Libertarians would have their initial Special Election Candidate for 2023, under this new statute.  Well, the devil is in the details.

Though Thomas Anderson’s nomination packet was filed by the Dec. 12 deadline because “he failed to include a copy of his (SFI) statement of financial interests”

Here’s where it gets interesting;  The DOS states that they gave Anderson leeway to file it in a few days, but that Anderson “inexplicably waited until Jan. 11 to file.  There’s various conflicting statements in the media reports.

Anderson has a Bachelor’s Degree from the Stevens Institute of Technology and a graduate degree from Penn State University.  He has worked as an alternative energy consultant, constable, and software engineer.  He has been affiliated with the Columbia County Committee of the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania, The Columbia County Landowners Association, We the People of Columbia County, and The Williamsport Tea Party.  

On Jan. 25, I received an email from Thomas Anderson that contained confirmation that the SFI was timestamped as of 5:16 p.m. on Dec. 12.

I’ll leave the final quotes to Thomas Anderson “I was duly nominated by the third largest political party in Pennsylvania.  They chose to deny for a technicality which was cured almost immediately”.

Two last comments The Greens have become used to this on a regular basis. Meanwhile, the newly minted Governor Shapiro refuses to even release some financial information.

More to follow.

Pennsylvania Vote Fraud Investigation Will Include Sworn Testimony, Subpoenas For Ballots, Maybe Machines

Pennsylvania Vote Fraud Investigation Will Include Sworn Testimony, Subpoenas For Ballots, Maybe Machines — Leo Knepper of Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania interviewed state Sen. Chris Dush (R-25), Sept. 7, regarding the investigation into the numerous irregularities in the 2020 Election in the Keystone State.

Knepper only distributed via email yesterday, Sept. 17.

Dush chairs the Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee.

Dush was insistent on his preference about calling what his committee was doing an investigation rather than an audit.

“I understand Arizona did what they called a forensic audit. Arizona’s constitution and laws are different than Pennsylvania’s,” Dush said. “For the (Pennsylvania) Senate to conduct an investigation it has to be an investigation. Audits are a form of investigation but not all investigations are audits.”

Dush said his committee will have a “deep and thorough dive” into what happened in 2020 and in the 2021 primary election.

Dush cited the numerous, unprecedented problems that occurred in the state.

He said he is going to be handling the matter like an investigator.

“It’s in my background,” he said.

He said he is going to demand sworn testimony. He cited the Nov. 25 hearing in Gettysburg as being problematic as witnesses to vote fraud and election law violation had not been under oath.

He said the committee has established this website at which those who witnessed irregularities may report them and apply to testify.. All wishing to testify must do so under oath and subject to penalties of perjury, Dush said.

“This is going to be done as a legal investigation so that if necessary, the testimony, the evidence, everything will stand up in court,” he said.

He also said subpoenas will be issued to examine the ballots and, likely, the machines.

He says he will treat the matter more as a district attorney rather than a politician and will not reveal findings until appropriate.

Here is the interview on YouTube. As of now, it has only 25 views. It’s about a half-hour long and worth watching at least in part.

Jake Corman Backs Audit He says On War Room

Jake Corman Backs Audit He says On War Room — After allegations were made early today (Aug. 20) that  Pennsylvania Senate Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-34) was trying to stop an audit into the state’s presidential election, he appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room with his explanation.

Corman said Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33), who is the face of the audit crusade, is screwing up and is following a plan that will fail legal scrutiny.

Corman has taken responsibility of the matter from Mastriano and has given it to Cris Dush (R-25) who chairs the senate’s Local Government Committee.

Serious, credentialed people have estimated that Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 500,000 votes. 

Corman says he thinks there were serious problems with the election in Pennsylvania and completely backs the audit.

While we cannot give any defining ruling as to who is right, we will note that Corman is not the only one to have expressed skepticism about Mastriano’s strategy.

Corman’s interview by Bannon can be found on Rumble at this link:

Corman Must Back Audit In Pennsylvania

Corman Must Back Audit In PennsylvaniaUpdate: Corman tells Bannon he wants an audit

Pennsylvania State Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-89) says Senate Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-34) is dragging his feet about the effort to audit the Nov. 3 Election for the Keystone State.

Serious, credentialed people have estimated that Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 500,000 votes. Mistakes and standard machine politics cannot account for the difference between this claim and the official margin giving the state to Biden. This would require a conspiracy of unimaginable size and be the greatest threat to you nation since the Civil War.

An audit is needed. Call Corman at 717-787-1377 or email him at

Demand he get on board. If the audit should show Biden legitimately won that would be a very good thing. If the audit should show a massive conspiracy, that would be a necessary thing, however, to save the country.

Audit the Nov. 3 election in Pennsylvania.

Proof Trump Won Pennsylvania Courtesy Department Of State

Proof Trump Won Pennsylvania Courtesy Department Of State –The Democrat-controlled Pennsylvania Department of State, July 8, issued Directive 1 of 2021 that prohibits county election boards from cooperating with the state Senate audit of the 2020 Election.

The following directive is effective immediately:
a. County Boards of Elections shall not provide physical, electronic, or internal access to third parties seeking to copy and/or conduct an examination of state-certified electronic voting systems, or any components of such systems, including but not limited to: election management software and systems, tabulators, scanners, counters, automatic tabulating equipment, voting devices, servers, ballot marking devices, paper ballot or ballot card printers, portable memory media devices (thumb drives, flash drives and the like), and any other hardware, software or devices being used as part of the election management system.


Well this is how they explain it:

Demands have been made to allow third party entities not directly involved with the conduct of elections to have access to electronic voting systems, specifically to review and copy the internal electronic, software, mechanical, logic, and related components of such systems. These demands have included the desire to image electronic memory spaces, to download operating systems and software, and to copy information that is internal and proprietary. Such access by third parties undermines chain of custody requirements and strict access limitations necessary to prevent both intentional and inadvertent tampering with electronic voting systems. It also jeopardizes the security and integrity of those systems and will negate the ability of electronic voting system vendors to affirmatively state that such systems continue to meet Commonwealth security standards, are validated as not posing security risks, and Page 2 of 2 are able to be certified to perform as designed by the electronic voting system vendor and as certified by both the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and the Department of State.


The Senate is not directly involved with the conduct of elections? Oversight?

Seems somebody wants something hidden. A responsible authority interested in a universally accepted outcome and that was confident of the certified election tally would not hesitate to cooperate with an audit.

Biden won Pennsylvania by 80,000 votes according to the official results. Showing minor mistakes and petty fraud would never give Trump what’s necessary for victory. Only demonstrating massive, orchestrated, hitherto unimaginable fraud could flip things.

Does the Wolf administration think such a thing possible? Then why the fight and why the fear of an audit?

We can think of only one explanation.

If you doubted the election was stolen before, don’t doubt now.

Update: Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33), who is leading the fight for the audit, has responded saying the each standing committee of the Pennsylvania Senate is authorized by law to “investigate the books, papers, documents, data, operation of physical plant of any public agency in this commonwealth, including county election boards.”

He notes that this has been consistently upheld by the state Supreme Court.

See his statement here.

LOL Update: We just got from LinkedIn. We had forgotten we were automatically posting there. Ponder this, would they have censored a claim that Mrs. Clinton won Michigan in 2016? Kinda doubt it. The more you hold Big Tech in contempt, the happier you are, and the freer you are.

Corman Question Answered For President

Corman Question Answered For President— Yesterday, June 14, President Trump released this on his Telegram channel:

Why is State Senator Jake Corman of Pennsylvania fighting so hard that there not be a Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam? Corman is fighting as though he were a Radical Left Democrat, saying that a Forensic Audit of Pennsylvania not take place. Why is Senator David Argall playing the same game? Are they stupid, corrupt, or naive? What is going on? Other State Senators want this Forensic Audit to take place—immediately. I feel certain that if Corman continues along this path of resistance, with its lack of transparency, he will be primaried and lose by big numbers. What went on in Philadelphia and other areas of the State must be properly and legally exposed. If it is not, just like with open Borders, we won’t have a Country anymore!

Scott Wagner Resigns From Senate

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief
Fun to stay at the YWCA?

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief  — A $5,000 contribution by a gay extremist in 2015 to a political action committee headed by Scott Wagner is getting the GOP gubernatorial hopeful quite a bit of grief.

A lot, lot of grief.

The money was given by Tim Gill to Reform PA PAC,  which Wagner chairs. Wagner won an historic write-in special election in March 2014 to represent the York County-centered 28th District. He campaigned as a Tea Party candidate against corruption, cronyism and indifference by the Republican establishment.

He won a full term that fall.

While Wagner has been outspokenly good on certain issues such as the state’s scandalous pension system, he seems to have managed to get himself most identified with a bizarre crusade to prohibit businesses and institutions from making distinctions based on biological sex.

He has co-sponsored a series of “bathroom bills“, a term with which Wagner wrongly takes issue  as there is no doubt that these bills would  grant by-right access for males calling themselves female to women’s restrooms and girls’ school sports.

Wagner has said that ending privacy for women (and girls) was not his intent and that he merely wants to stop LGBQWHATEVER people from being discriminated by business.

That’s almost as bad, Scott. The elimination of  the concept of “protected groups” should be the goal of decent, thinking people, not their expansion.

Being a member of a “protected group” is not helpful. Business owners — as we’d expect you to understand — base the vast majority of hiring decisions on whether the employee will make life easier. Protected group membership is something that makes business owners walk on eggshells and that is, by far, the main reason protected group members face — understandable — discrimination.

Gays, who are not yet a protected group, certainly aren’t facing economic hardship in this country and that gets us to Tim Gill.

Gill is the mega-rich gay extremist who wants to “punish” those who question his lifestyle choices. This always means stifling debate about legitimate concerns and usually means personal destruction. He is a bad, corrupting man.

PSEA Anti-School Anti-Child Pro Power

PSEA Anti-School Anti-Child Pro Power

PSEA Anti-School Anti-Child Pro PowerBy Scott Wagner

“It is not because we care about children, and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective because we have power.”

These were sad and shocking admissions made by Bob Chanin, a leader of the National Education Association, an organization of which the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) is a member and significant funder.

I think it’s time Pennsylvanians have a serious conversation about the PSEA.

Protecting power — not kids, teachers and taxpayers — is what drives the PSEA. And the PSEA is Tom Wolf’s largest union funder.

Worse yet, in Pennsylvania, public sector employees — like teachers — don’t get to choose whether or not they pay dues.  Dues are taken from their paychecks and sent to the unions — like the PSEA — whether teachers like it or not.

This method of collecting union dues has made the PSEA very, very powerful.

And I’ve seen firsthand how the PSEA uses teachers’ dues against them, and against students and taxpayers. They block every effort that would benefit these stakeholders — like solving the pension crisis so that money can actually go to the classroom, and eliminating school property taxes so hardworking people can keep their homes.

Back in February, the Pennsylvania State Senate passed a bill that would stop the PSEA from collecting involuntary dues, and curb their ability to block what’s good for stakeholders. Senate Bill 166 (Paycheck Protection) passed with a vote of 28 (Y) to 22 (N), and upon passage was sent to the House for a vote. This past week, however, the State House defeated the bill by a vote of 102 (no) to 90 (yes).

The PSEA doesn’t like me much — and I’m not particularly fond of the way they work against teachers, students and taxpayers — but make no mistake. When I’m governor, changing this power dynamic will be a top priority of my administration.

Unlike Bob Chanin and the PSEA, as the governor of Pennsylvania, I will be representing children, teachers and taxpayers from day one, because for me, it is about children, and it is about having a great public school for every child, every teacher and every taxpayer.

Sen. Wagner represents the 28th District in the Pennsylvania Senate and is seeking the Republican nomination for governor in 2018.
