Josh Shapiro, as the attorney general of Pennsylvania, has the power, authority and responsibility to shut down this whole voter fraud allegation.
As per the Pennsylvania Election Code, Act of June 3, 1937, P.L. 1333, No. 320, Section 1642, on enforcement: (a) The Attorney General shall have prosecutorial jurisdiction over all violations committed under this act. (c) The district attorney of any county in which a violation occurred has concurrent powers and responsibilities with the Attorney General over such violations. (1642 amended Dec. 9, 2002, P.L. 1246, No. 150)
Having served in law enforcement for over 35 years, 29 in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General as a criminal law special agent, and having investigated election law violations in that capacity, I assure you there is enough “reasonable suspicion” to conduct a conclusive investigation. Why hasn’t Shapiro done that?
Investigate and prove nothing — or something — happened. You can’t just hearsay a response, particularly given the importance of the allegations, the implications and Shapiro’s position as the top lawman in the state.
Not to address this as the attorney general is not doing the job Shapiro was elected to perform. For the sake of the truth, we desperately need Shapiro, as the people’s attorney, to put an end to these allegations. Convene a grand jury. Please.
Why hasn’t Shapiro thought of this? Why hasn’t he done anything to end the suspicions?
