If you’re even a casual user of teh internetz, you have likely been bombarded with ads extolling the virtues of mail-in ballots. Their continual, yet farcical claim is, “They’re safe, and they’re secure!”
Tell that to the citizens of Pennsylvania.
New concerns are cropping up across the region about mail-in ballots and other election issues in our area. And there are late-breaking developments in the federal investigation into mail-in ballots in Luzerne County.
The United States Attorney David Freed just sent a letter to Luzerne County officials with the latest findings of that investigation. Basically he says that election bureau officials did not properly handle mail-in ballots from military personnel and that the problem is a concern as it pertains to having every vote count.

Local talk show host Chris Stigall mentioned this yesterday and made a terrific point. This investigation is only happening because Luzerne County does not have a Soros-appointed DA.
The letter states in part: “The FBI has recovered a number of documents relating to military ballots that had been improperly opened by your elections staff, and had the ballots removed and discarded, or removed and placed separately from the envelope containing confidential voter information and attestation. Specifically, a total of nine (9) military ballots were discovered to have been discarded. Seven (7) of those ballots when discovered by investigators were outside of any envelope. Those ballots were all cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Wait, every discarded ballot was a vote for President Trump? What a co-inky-dink!
Now, I heard this from a few sources, but I’m not certain it’s true. Any tampered or opened mail-in ballot – at least in PA – is obviously null and void. Here’s what I heard Friday: if your ballot is tampered or opened, there is no recourse. So if my vote was opened, I cannot vote in person on Election Day.
That doesn’t seem right to me, but I heard it from a few political junkies – so take it with a grain of salt.
Either way, the safest and most secure voting option is heading to the polls in person. Don’t let these bastards nullify your vote.
