Top Pennsylvania GOP Senator Supports Forensic Election Audit

The Pennsylvania state Senate’s top republican said he supports a “thorough forensic audit of recent elections - including the use of our subpoena powers.” 

President Pro Tempore Jake Corman made the statement in an op-ed Monday, following criticism for removing Sen. Doug Mastriano as lead of the chamber’s election integrity review, Just the News reports. 

Corman delegated the responsibility to Senate Local Government Committee Chairman Cris Dush. 

“It is discouraging to realize that he was only ever interested in politics and showmanship and not actually getting things done,” Corman said about Mastriano last week. 

“If we are going to give Pennsylvanians an election system they can believe in, we need to remove any doubt about whether the system is fair,” Corman said Monday. He said the audit will go “much further” than other reviews. 

“The goal of the Senate’s investigation will not be to conduct a recount, but to find any flaws in the system that could be exploited by bad actors and take action to correct those flaws through legislative changes to our Election Code,” he said. 

“Our goal should be to proceed carefully, thoughtfully and transparently,” he continued. “I am not interested in a process that panders to any one point of view. We need to follow the evidence wherever it leads and get real results to make our election system stronger and more secure.”
