Proud to be a philadelphian right now.

I do think we were the beneficiaries of favorable timing. If AZ and GA counted their votes at a reasonable rate, PA would have been irrelevant.

As for the law suits, I've heard that the amount of votes impacted by the "Postmark-gate" is 7000 or so ballots. No where near enough to sway the 50,000 vote advantage for Joey B.

This is done.

Yes indeed. And that's not even counting the remaining mail-ins/provisionals in the heavily-populated Dem counties that aren't part of "Postmark-gate." It's likely that Joe will have much closer to a 100K margin when all is said and done.

I work with a staunch Republican who is pounding the table demanding that this election was stolen and the battleground states were systemically targeted and manipulated into a fraudulent Biden win.

Ugh. this stuff can't end fast enough.

Thankfully it's the reverse for me. The few people I know who voted for Trump don't think he should continue. I would categorize them as the "shy Trump" voter.

I actually have a number of conservatives that hate and loathe President trump. They did vote for him the first time, I think like many who had high hopes of something "different". this time my friend said..."I wanted different, not batcrap crazy"

While I'm sure Philadelphians voted in a significant majority for Biden, what are the odds that that majority got, let's say, a bit of "artificial enhancement" to help counterbalance the overwhelming Republican majority in the rest of the state. Could actors in your Board of Elections, have flipped 20-30,000 votes Biden's way?

The City Commissioner in charge of counting the votes is a Republican.

But in reporting on the election horse race, it's whoever gets past the post first that gets the credit. Had the media called Georgia first, we'd be talking about how that state put Biden over the top, and it was a bunch of mail ballots from Philadelphia that put Biden's lead beyond the point where additional uncounted ballots could erase it. That tipping-point ballot might have come from Allegheny County had not the courts put the count there on hold for a day because of a bunch of ballots that contained errors and had to be reissued.

BTW, that's one of those "irregularities" Pat Toomey was referring to, and I'm sure that the followup canvas of the Philadelphia vote will find some of those too. Those don't rise to the level of fraud, however, or however much the Trumpistas try to wish them there.
I saw a story on this where they interviewed the woman from Allegheny County who was either the official in charge or a spokesperson for the official. She said that Allegheny County contracted a company that printed their ballots incorrectly (she didn't specific what was incorrect, but apparently not the Presidential race) and then had to reissue some number of them. They received about 29,000 of the incorrect ballots in the mail, and those were set aside until the count of the corrected ballots was complete. At that point, they had to cross check the correct ballot to see if the person had returned a correct ballot, and if they did, discard the incorrect one, or if they did not, count the incorrectly printed one. From what she said, it seemed like the issue was specific to Allegheny County, and the interview was conducted before the incorrect ballots were to be counted, so I don't know how many were rejected as duplicate vs accepted.
