Pennsylvania Senate Republicans voted on Wednesday to subpoena the Pennsylvania State Department for personal information and voting histories of millions of voters under the name they launch a review which seems designed to challenge the presidential election of 2020. The Pennsylvania Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee has voted across parties to authorize a high-profile subpoena targeting the Department ofState of Pennsylvania. The request covers a range of voter data, including voters' names, addresses, driver's license numbers and partial Social Security numbers. The demand covers not only the nearly 7 million Pennsylvanians who voted in November 2020, but all of the roughly 9 million registered voters in the state. The summons also covers a wide range of related information elections, such as communications between the State Department and county election officials, information on training for election officers, and a copy of certified election results for all races from the 2020 general election and primary elections of 2021. Sen. State Cris Dush , the Republican at the head of the electoral review, said the information peVoter records were needed to verify voter identity, as there had been allegations that some people who voted did not actually exist. Despite Republican statements to the committee, there was no indication of significant voter fraud in Pennsylvania or any other state. But the vote is the latest an indication of how Republicans in a handful of states across the country have passed so-called audits to question the 2020 presidential election result and appease Former President Donald Trump and his supporters. committee as well as to all suppliers selected to perform the sso-called audit.Dush said that he and his legal team would select the vendors to execute the effort, but they have not yet made a final decision. Dush could not guarantee that the select vendors will not relations with recent presidential candidates. He also couldn't say whether he would rule out companies with ties to Sidney Powell, who was previously a member of Trump's legal team. Dush said the election review would be funded by taxpayers, but when asked if that would run into hundreds of thousands of dollars or potentially millions of dollars, he was unable to provide an estimated cost. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat , criticized the Senate committee vote in a statement Wednesday. Let 's be very clear, this request for information is not is just one more step to undermine democracy, truste in our election and to capitulate eaten at Donald Trump 's conspiracy theories on the 2020 election said Wolf. This is a direct continuation of the same lies that led to the attack on Capitol Hill, and who have done so much to destabilize our political institutions in the ten months since last year's election. Democrats on the Senate committee have said they plan to take legal action to challenge the subpoena. It is not known how the Pennsylvania State Department will react.
