On Tuesday, The Allegheny County Board of Elections in Pittsburgh, PA voted to count 2,349 ballots that were mailed without dates, Fox News is reporting.

The Board of Elections voted 2 to 1 to count those votes. 

Councilman Sam DeMarco voted against the motion, stating that he would side with the law as it is written, which says the ballot mailing envelope must contain the date.

The ballots arrived on or before Election Day and were stamped with a date when they were received, according to Elections employees.

“They applied on time, received their ballots, voted their ballots, returned them on time with their signature, their printed name, their address. The only thing they’re missing is their date,” said county solicitor Andrew Szefi. “They were received timely, and our ballot sorting machine imprints a date received on each envelope as they’re scanned.”

The undated ballots will be further analyzed to confirm they are eligible ballots. So far, more than 2,600 ballots have been deemed ineligible after review.

Szefi explained that envelopes without dates will only be counted once they are throughly reviewed and meet the standards of an eligible ballot. If an undated ballot was a “naked ballot” — not placed within the secrecy envelope — or if the secrecy envelope had markings on it, it wouldn’t be counted.

On Monday, The Trump Campaign filed a lawsuit against Secretary of the Commonwealth, Kathy Boockvar and the boards of election in Allegheny and six other counties. The lawsuit claims equal protection violations, including an illegal, two-tiered voting system that treated voters who sent mail-in ballots differently than those who voted in person. The lawsuit also alleges that in-person voters were required to show identification while mail-in voters were not.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
