Supreme Court allows Pennsylvania mail-in ballots to be counted after Election Day
"Last night the show we told you about how Democrats were celebrating the Supreme Court decision not to block a ruling by the Pennsylvania State Supreme. Court. Decision that would allow absentee ballots to be counted in that state even if they arrive up to three days after election. Tonight some experts are warning that if you look closely, there's a reason to worry about what four of the conservative justices on the spring quarter up to. So there were four who did want to take up the case they wanted to take up the challenge. They did not explain why they did. There was opinion issued but boxes millhauser points out quote in their briefs. The GOP hones in on the word legislator arguing that only Pennsylvania state legislature may set the state's rules for choosing presidential electors not the state Supreme Court. Okay so they're saying look don't listen to our state Supreme Court Supreme Court of the United States you guys can overrule them, and if the descending justices were considering accepting that argument, then they're basically toying with the idea that federal courts can just step in and tell states how to interpret their own laws, their own state constitutions plus it's not clear. We've heard the end of this particular case millhauser points out quote. The GOP may be able to raise this issue again after Amy Coney Berties confirmed potentially securing court order requiring states like Pennsylvania to toss out an unknown number of ballots that arrive after election day the election is closed that could be enough to change the result. Those four conservative justices basically laid out an invitation to come back and challenge those ballots when the court is even more favorable to Republicans than it is now when they have a five four majority. One of the people who who filed the supreme. Court on behalf of Pennsylvania is State's Attorney General Josh. Shapiro and he joins me now. All right. This is. The actual federal civil procedure questions here are actually so complicated and I don't think I. Did a great job explaining just now to be honest as I read it. So let's let's just sort of set it up. You have a state constitution in Pennsylvania guarantees people right to vote. Correct. Correct. And There was a lawsuit that said look. The current rules for counting absentee ballots, which which would not count ones that were mailed in good faith and sent before the election day and happened to come in a few days after that's denying people their right to vote and the supreme. Court said of your state said, that's correct under Pennsylvania State Constitution, we have to count those votes is that correct? Yeah that's exactly right. I mean look. Boil this down. This is a matter of state law. There was interpreted by the highest court in our state, our state Supreme Court, and our State Supreme Court said very clearly that you know basically when in doubt err on the side of inclusion or in franchise -ment. Unfortunately, what you have are repeated attacks against our election laws here in Pennsylvania by Donald, trump in his enablers trying to make it harder for people to vote trying to make it easier for ballads to be discarded, and so I've been in court time and time again, defending the right for legal eligible votes to be counted and to make sure the Pennsylvanians can be heard I think Donald Trump is afraid of candidly is having all legal eligible votes in Pennsylvania County because. I think he'll come out on the short end of that stick at the ballot box just as he has in the courthouses where we've beat him, he's over threes got a big fat over on his record and I. Think if he continues down this track here, you know really late in the fourth quarter to try and make it harder for people to vote he'll continue to lose in court. So you this appeal, right? So the State Supreme Court says look yes but. The State Constitution Pennsylvania. Says we we want people to vote for right to vote. We're going to try to interpret this in a way that maximizes legitimate votes you beginning counted not thrown on technicalities. The Republican Party of your state doesn't like this opinion that and appeal it and they asked the Supreme Court to step in and blocked that ruling. And it looks like four conservative justices were interested in hearing that argument. Does that were you all? Well. It does in the sense that it kind of flies in the face of of something going to nerd out on you here for a second flies in the face of something known as the pursell doctrine which ineffective says that federal courts should exercise extreme caution. Before interfering with state election law and that extreme caution gets even more extreme. The closer you get to an election we're not only fourteen days away from election day. We're already voting here in Pennsylvania more than a million Pennsylvanians have already voted. So the idea that the Supreme Court of the United States would step on step in on what is clearly. A state constitutional law question interpreting state law is a bit troublesome. Nevertheless, they didn't muster the votes necessary to stop or block Pennsylvania election law,
The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting
"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.

"This isn't so much about left, right? This is about who's going to demonstrate a billion, listen show, compassion. In their heart and be able to lead our party forward. And I intend to play a role in in making sure that that person is successful in Pennsylvania, I presume that you can't share with me in this setting who that person is in your mind right now. But I what about Pennsylvania itself as you point out. That was a huge piece of the puzzle for Donald Trump in two thousand and sixteen Democrats did well in two thousand eighteen in Pennsylvania. Although there were congressional seats that were thought to be in jeopardy for Republicans that weren't one. What is your level of confidence that a democrat will win Pennsylvania two thousand twenty right now, my confidence level is high. But as Joe Biden famously said compare me to the alternative not the almighty right now Donald Trump's being compared to the almighty if you will and in that. Parison? He has lost the Philadelphia suburbs. Which is a really important swing part of our Commonwealth. It is I think impossible to win the Commonwealth without winning the suburbs and Trump actually performed reasonably well in the suburbs. He's lost a lot right now. So we need a candidate who can appeal the suburbs who can obviously appeal to our base in places like Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, but can go back to places like Scranton in Erie and Johnstown, center county were state colleges and speak to those communities, and let them know that that they care as well. Right now, my money is on democratic nominee looking at it. You know as dispassionately as I can certainly I'll be rooting for and working for the democrat. I think structurally speaking Pennsylvania is moving back to where it was state that elected Brock Obama twice. But our nominees going to have to do some real work in order to make sure that sticks. You know? I I remember vividly. We were talking about this. Before Brock Obama when he came to Pennsylvania didn't just go to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh he went to places like beaver county. He went to Scranton went to Wilkes Barre. He went to these communities that oftentimes don't get to see politicians running for national office. He showed respect to those communities, and we need to make sure we get back to that in the cycle. Well, Josh Piero one thing I'm pretty certain of is that you're gonna log a lot of miles between now two thousand and twenty in the state of Pennsylvania if past as prologue and and be knocking on a lot of doors.

"People who participated in that in that cover documented in the churches on records, and confirmed in the grand jury, they are still in positions of power one of them is cardinal world in Washington DC. There are bishops in Pennsylvania who are named in the report because of their conduct in the neighbor. The cover of who are still in positions of power. So for someone to come along and say that that's that's ancient history to responses one the leadership still is represented by people who are part of the cover and to David. I don't think we should treat child rape in nineteen seventy nine any different thousand nineteen. Absolutely. And you write about the cover up, but you know, young man, I thought asked to very a very fringe in question when we were at this event that you held here today with Lisa Madigan. The former attorney general Avila has also been active on this issue. And he said people want to know if they're children are safe. And so it is relevant. If there has been there have been changes that could give people some confidence that that their children are safe. Here's what I can say. Of course, I'm limited in in some things I can talk about publicly since we released. The grand jury report in August. My offices received nearly fifteen hundred calls to our clergy abuse hotline. Many of those calls represent new information that either we are some other law enforcement agency are investigating since our report was released fourteen state attorney general have opened up investigations, including Lisa Madigan Kwamena will here in Illinois. The federal government has opened up an inquiry just last week in New Jersey predator priest was charged for someone to think that you know, this is ancient history. And there's nothing current. I think is a false conclusion for people to reach the the pope is called car cardinals together to talk about this bishops and bizarre wh-. What do you expect to happen there? And how how Franco reckoning due to pay? I don't know that it's my place to ever call on the pope to do something or or to save just shoe based on what you've seen and heard from him. Here's what I know that the church has enough information available to it from our report in Pennsylvania from other similar reports. That have come out the church has enough direct information from victims who have come forward to know that this is a serious systemic problem that is not limited to Pennsylvania, but is all across this country and presumably across the world, that's number one. Number two. The church knows that the reforms they put in place back in two thousand two are simply not enough. The pope has acknowledged the horrors that we on earth, and has stated that real serious. Change must come. I'm paraphrasing those or not his his precise words what I also know from going. Through this process is that the church simply cannot police itself. And so I believe what has to happen is for all of the church leadership to recognize the pope has these cars that have occurred that there was a systemic systematic cover up that there was widespread abuse and invite secular authorities in to be a part of the solution together with the church. That's what I hope comes from this large meeting coming up here in a couple of weeks. What about you made a point earlier that many of the people were some of the people who were responsible for covering up? These assaults disabuse are still in positions of power including cardinal world. What what what what do you think the pope might or should do about that? Well, it's not my place to tell the pope what personnel decisions he should make. But I can tell you that. No one would ever be working for me. If they were involved in a cover up of this magnitude, the idea that some of these folks can continue in positions of of leadership is is shocking to me. And by the way, shocking to many parishioners that I hear from in Pennsylvania and across the country petitioners who are demanding real change survivors who are for the first time being heard and being listened to David I have to tell you one of the most..

You can't just go there and ignore the rest of the state you've got to be able to talk to people in fish town, which is in Philadelphia and Johnstown, which is in southwestern Pennsylvania community that's ravaged by opioids and struggling economically. And I think there's a way to. Do that. And the most important thing we have to do is go and understand the community and listen to them, and let them know we care. They don't expect us to solve every problem that they have. But they do expect us to listen into care about the challenges that they face you. You went to the UN to the Pennsylvania Semneby and pretty quickly you were meshed in trying to mediate a leadership a leadership battle there that actually got some national attention, but talk about that at the end of the election of two thousand and six os my first reelection to the state house. I was a one term member. The Democrats enjoyed a one seat advantage in the state house one zero two to one oh one yet right before the vote for speaker, which comes from the floor of the house, you majority of the two hundred and three hundred two votes. A few of the Democrats said they would not support. The democrat who had been nominated by our caucus to serve as speaker. I learned this on New Year's Eve day, the vote was to take place two days later, and I was really concerned about it told my wife about who again sort of kick me about the way she always does in a very direct way. And she said, we'll go do something about it. I said, well, what am I supposed to do about? I'm basically a freshman lawmaker. How am I supposed to make this habit?

The the speaker at the time who the previous session was a Republican and objectionable too. Two Republican time quite objectionable to both Democrats and Republicans actually many ways, but I had this idea. Maybe we get this moderate Republican all the Democrats could vote for for him. And if you Republicans could to and we could have the first ever bipartisan speaker, and the Democrats could preserve their majority is chairman of all the committees and manage the the flow bills in the house, we could preserve what the voters wanted which was for Democrats to set the agenda, and it was a secret of effort over the next forty eight hours much of which at the at the last possible second was concocted in the basement of the governor's residence when Rendell was was our governor.

"Listen, you show, people respect when I learned that in that experience knocking on those eighteen thousand doors running for state rep. And then of course, running for attorney general in two thousand sixteen when Trump carried our state is that showing up listening matters and showing respect matters and putting yourself in their shoes and trying to understand the challenges. People face matters. I was shocked at at you know, I'd have these long days on the campaign trail, listen to people talk them going to their VFW's listening to them in their communities. And then you know, you. Turn on late at night, the cable news, and the focus is all on the left right divide. Sisons Dyson the the population in in ways that are focused on the sort of like minute policy differences that never came up in the discussions. I was having with people. And I think too often times we as a party focus on, you know, the left, right? You know, progressive liberal, whatever the label is that you wanna put on dynamic as opposed to getting back to basics, which is showing up and listening and trying to understand where people are coming from. And. I'll never forget the strike came out of a rally in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, which is up in northeastern part of our state, you know, hard-working great community, but a community that's lost a lot of its economy over the years and the message at this big rally from, you know, Joe Biden on behalf of Hillary Clinton are Senate candidate was about equal pay for equal work, and I talked about the opioid crisis. Because that was something that was huge in that area. I'm leaving the event and these two guys who were there in front of me. And they said that Shapiro guy seems alright I'll vote for him. All right is great. I'll take all right. But then they said, but I'm not voting for Clinton because that whole equal pay for equal work thing. And they used to couple expletives. And then they said, you know, if they pass that equal pay for equal work Bill. What's going to happen is my taxes are going to go up and some woman's going to get a job. Instead of me. Dave, I was ready to jump on those guys in strangle. Them and say okay, first off equal pay. Freak work is a great thing. Second. You're completely wrong on the policy and third. You're wrong about the effects of that policy. But instead of jumping all over them and telling them how wrong they were. I tried to put myself in their shoes and understand the pain. They were feeling because one of those guys hadn't had a job in ten years. And the felt that the message from our party was not one that they could understand or relate to and I think to oftentimes we're getting caught up in these policy discussions and getting mad at folks when they don't agree with us on policy instead of understanding where they sit in how they interpret that. So I'm no less a supporter of equal pay for equal work than I was the day before that rally, but I can understand where people are coming from even if they're logic is flawed and try and tailor the the work we do to helping them. You don't have to ban your principles, but you have to listen you have to predate where they're coming from a pretty robust bait within the Democratic Party about whether the road to win. Inning a national election. Lies in. Doing what you're discussing or maximizing sort of would they would call base vote. Right.

And and but you didn't immediately go to law school when you got out of out of college. I didn't I'll share quick story with you. In fact, I was invited back to be a commencement speaker at the university of Rochester mo-modern, and I shared this story, then my freshman year. I went there to be a doctor like my dad who had such a big impact on my life to play basketball believe it or not short Jewish guy. Like me. Actually, play basketball and taking your word for. And that's what I was going to do. And on one day, my freshman year of college, I showed up to my one of my pre med classes to learn that I had flunked the class, even though I had worked really hard professor said, look, it's clear you studied. I'm just not sure that your brain is wired that way was feeling incredibly depressed. But realizing you know, that I could still be a basketball player.

At least nothing else can happen to me in a brick falls and hits him on the head. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Exactly. I mean, it was I couldn't believe that night. Someone knocked on my door and said, hey, you should run for student government. I'm like student government. Why would ever want to do that? I had zero interested in is not. What I was focused on.

I couldn't run unopposed, and I could win so Iran, I won an actually like just a month or so after I won't boy with all the details, but I organized a student protest about some decisions that the university administration and made in at the end of my freshman year of college got elected student body president and then from there studied political science and went right after college to Capitol Hill, I figured I'd go there for a year and have the experience, and maybe the law school or something and one year turned into nine years on the hill. I was a hill chief of staff and then went to Georgetown law school at night. And that was really I think crystal you or working while I was working on the hill as chief of staff, and it was an incredible experience until one day after walking my boss to the floor of the congress kind of whispered in Zere what the Bill was that? We're going to be voting on that day. I turned around and took my blackberry off my hip holster back. Then we had these big hip holsters and called my wife.

"When you started diving into this issue of abuse of children by priests one of the reasons I got involved in government, and I had somewhat of a circuitous route to get there. We'll get we'll get to that. So yes, one of the reasons I got involved was because I remember vividly watching my dad go and testify for the prosecution in child abuse cases in the community where where we grew up. I remember my dad having a hand in starting the first child advocacy center for abused children in our community, those things affected me and really extrordinary ways. Actually made me want to be a pediatrician like my dad until we're gonna chemistry came. But anyway, those are memories I have that. I drew upon. On that as we were going through this clergy abuse effort, you faith is obviously important in your family. You went to to Jewish schools through throughout and but tell me what that has meant. Also in terms of the things that you have done with your life. How how did it an animate your your life as a kid has animate your life? Now, my faith is critically important to me. I think really for two reasons number one together with my wife and our four kids eight grounds me, and it constantly reminds me about what's real, and what matters in life and your requirement to serve others and second, you know, there's so many wonderful passages. He can pull from any religious texts. But for me, the one I not only think about everyday, but I talk about a lot in public speeches. And what have you is the scripture teaches? Us. No one is required to complete the task. But neither are we free to refrain from it. And that to me is the essence of my faith, which is a requirement to do for others. Maybe not solve the ultimate problem. But to advance the ball to move things forward to help others. I draw on my faith, I speak very openly about my faith, even in communities where being Jewish made not be something that that folks typically recognize or understand, but it is who I am. And so together with my family, my faith, really grounds me and helps keep me focused on. What matters you a concerned? There's been a a precipitous increase in. Antisemitic acts including the horrendous shooting in Pennsylvania late last year. Why? There's a number of reasons for that. I think the president bear some responsibility. Not only through the direct words that he uses, but perhaps more importantly, he allows his words to be misappropriated by others who would want to do harm to someone just based upon what they look like they pray to where they come from who they love that is incredibly dangerous when the leader of your country is allowing those words to be used that way, you combine that with communities being more divided than ever before not understanding one another not understanding what it means to walk in one shoes or sit in their seat. And you know, we have a situation that is really toxic. It's interesting David, you know, as a prosecutor, I've seen a dramatic increase in the number of reported hate crimes and hate incidents in Pennsylvania. We brought on the first ever chief deputy attorney. General for civil rights just to focus on that kind of work. And in fact, I had an opportunity with my fellow attorney general to be in the White House and to talk with the president. And we could raise any issue we wanted. This was the issue. I raised about hate speech. And I often say hate speech, begets hate crimes and talked about our asked him about how we can get our state and federal law enforcement partners to work more closely together on dealing with these issues and the presence response was sort of stunning. He talked about how you know, you gotta be careful 'cause sometimes the reverse can be true.

"The Pennsylvania, diocese world was accused of mishandling several cases of abuse while at the diocese of Pittsburgh for over two decades, and in Pennsylvania this morning, the man who prepared that scathing horrific report, Pennsylvania attorney general Josh Shapiro urge state lawmakers to eliminate the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse prosecutions. He's on the line now from Philadelphia welcome to be with you. Thank you. So am I ask you about your reaction to world's resignation? What went through your mind? When I heard the news today. Well, cardinal world's resignation is a necessary step given what the grand jurors. Uncovered about his role in the systematic cover-up of child sexual abuse. I actually second his comments about the need for greater transparency within the church. I think what's missing here, though, isn't acknowledgment by the Vatican on the extent of the abuse and cover up in Pennsylvania, and then Bishop world's role in it. Now. I'll I'll leave it to the church's the church's internal politics to them and their prisoners. But I do not think that the people of Pennsylvania will accept that anyone proven to be part of this up should face, no real consequences for that criminal conduct. That's exactly what I wanted to address. Because in a letter to cardinal world that the cardinal released today. Pope Francis actually praised him. The letter seems to suggest that the only thing cardinal world is guilty of his managerial mistakes not covering up. Any crimes? What do you think of that characterization by the pope, I think that it is demonstrably false to suggest that then Bishop worl- did not play any meaningful role in the cover up the church's own secret archives show, the active role that Bishop were all played in it. Okay. I want to turn now to your call for changing the current statute of limitations. You you basically agree with four. Nations that the grand jury report articulated, tell me about how you think the law should change in Pennsylvania, we uncovered three hundred and one predator priest. Sadly, I could only charge two of them. And if we lived in another jurisdiction where there is no criminal statute of limitations. I would have charged every single one of them who is living every single one of these victims has been time barred from bringing a civil suit, but with respect to completely eliminating the statute of limitations for criminal cases. It is true that the longer you wait before you prosecute a crime, the heart of the case becomes to prove witnesses pass away memories, fade evidence grows. Stale does any of that concern you as a lawyer, of course? But the burden is always on us. The prosecutors to bring that case, and yes, it is more difficult oftentimes when a number of years goes by, but it doesn't mean that we should be barred from bringing a case, especially when the data clearly shows the children who are abused often. Don't. Come forward right away. And in fact, the average age that a child comes forward to share their truth is when they turn fifty to fifty two and yet the law here in Pennsylvania says that we couldn't bring a criminal case after the age of fifty and so we believe and the data shows that if it's going to take that much time for someone to come forward. We shouldn't be barred from prosecuting what your office report laid bare is how a large institution in. This instance, the Catholic church, but there's so many other examples how a large institution can go to great lengths to cover up sexual abuse. And to protect abusers does revising the statute of limitations get it that would actually increase the accountability. Internally at these institutions will you hit the nail on the head so much of this is about an institution in this case. The Catholic church arguably the most powerful institution in the world constantly and consistently putting its own reputation above. Of the needs of the people. They were there to serve in this case children. I think there's a reckoning going on in this country right now about how we are going to or how much we are willing to hold powerful institutions accountable. And I think you're seeing across this country with all that's going on with the metoo movement, the cavenaugh hearings, and the Cosby trial is is you're seeing more and more people stepping up and being willing to hold powerful institutions accountable and law enforcement plays a unique and critical role in that process.
