HARRISBURGThe Republican Leaders of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and House State Government Committee Chairman Seth Grove (R-York) today sent a letter to Philadelphia City Commissioners Lisa Deely and Omar Sabir making it clear that if the commissioners continue to intentionally violate the plain language of the Pennsylvania Election Code and their oath of office, then they will face impeachment proceedings. The letter follows a May 18, 2021, vote by the Philadelphia City Commissioners to proceed with counting undated no-excuse absentee ballots despite the plain language of Section 1306 of the Pennsylvania Election Code requiring the ballots to be dated and signed. Pennsylvania’s Constitution states impeachment of elected officials is a responsibility of the House of Representatives. If impeached, conviction proceedings would occur in the Pennsylvania Senate.
