Testimony being sought must be firsthand accounts in which the resident witnessed impropriety or directly experienced it themselves.

The Pennsylvania Senate committee tasked with investigating instances of election malfeasance asked residents this week to submit their testimony for its review.

Intergovernmental Operations Committee Chairman Cris Dush, R-Wellsboro, said residents should only submit their stories if they are willing to sign an affidavit and potentially testify under oath, under penalty of perjury, before the panel during forthcoming hearings.

The testimony must also include firsthand accounts in which the resident witnessed impropriety or directly experienced it themselves. The information will “help lawmakers develop potential improvements to state law to bolster election security.”

Dush took over the committee earlier this month after Senate Republican leaders removed former Chairman Doug Mastriano, R-Gettysburg, following an internal battle over the direction of the probe.

Mastriano said Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Bellefonte, stonewalled the investigation and undermined his efforts to extract information from voting machines in Tioga, York and Philadelphia counties.

Corman said Mastriano acted on his own accord when he sent letters to county commissioners that ultimately prompted the Department of State to threaten to decertify voting equipment should local officials’ comply with the request.

The machines cost millions to replace, commissioners in York and Tioga counties told The Center Square earlier this month.

The Senate leader also denied blocking the investigation or canceling a committee hearing in which members were expected to subpoena the counties for the information.

“If we are going to give Pennsylvanians an election system they can believe in, we need to remove any doubt about whether the system is fair,” Corman said in an Aug. 23 op-ed that reaffirmed his commitment to the forensic audit.

He insisted the Senate’s probe will go “much further” than other state-mandated reviews that have focused more on the accuracy of votes tabulated.

“The goal of the Senate’s investigation will not be to conduct a recount, but to find any flaws in the system that could be exploited by bad actors and take action to correct those flaws through legislative changes to our Election Code,” he said.

Dush said the committee will soon schedule public hearings, create a website that contains updates about the audit and request documents from both counties and the state.

DeSantis dismisses talk of 2024 presidential bid, but continues to campaign across the country

Published

on

Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to dismiss the chatter about a run for high office in 2024.

“I just do my job and we work hard,” the governor said in a recent in-state press event. “I hear all this stuff,nand honestly it’s nonsense.”

He also said “speculation” to the contrary is “purely manufactured.”

The high-profile governor has been appearing across the nation recently including at events in California, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah.

He has, up to this point, steered clear of early primary locals such as Iowa and New Hampshire. But the circuit he has been on includes other potentially viable names for the 2024 Republican primary including former Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton. 

Days from now, DeSantis will again appear with potential contenders at Sunday’s 5th annual Nebraska Steak-Fry hosted by Nebraska GOP Gov. Pete Ricketts. 

The elephant in the room, however, for DeSantis and others, remains the likelihood of a third White House bid from former President Donald Trump.

The former president still polls well ahead of any other GOP politician hoping to run in 2024, and Trump’s fundraising efforts appear to have ramped up late last month as the Biden White House botched the Afghan withdrawal. 

In April, Trump said he would consider asking DeSantis to be his running mate, should he elect to run again. But for the moment, DeSantis says he’s focused on the 2022 election cycle in which he’s vying for a second term as governor, a position for which he is currently campaigning around his state including headlining a number of fundraising dinners and events for local GOP candidates.

Former Biden COVID adviser concedes cloth masks ‘are not very effective’

Published

on

Akey SARS-Cov-2 expert acknowledged this week that a mainstay of the global coronavirus response — the use of cloth masks — does little to stop the spread of the virus.

Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and an adviser on President Joe Biden’s transitional COVID-19 advisory board, made the stunning claim on CNN this week amid escalating worldwide fears and concerns over the “Delta variant” of COVID-19.

“We know today that many of the face cloth coverings that people wear are not very effective in reducing any of the virus movement in or out,” Osterholm said during the interview. 

“We need to talk about better masking,” he said. “We need to talk about N-95 respirators, which would do a lot for both people who are not yet vaccinated or not previously infected.”

Osterholm told Just the News he was unavailable for comment regarding his remarks. 

The apparent admission comes after well over a year of public health officials insisting that cloth masks are among the most vital and lifesaving tools in the fight against SARS-Cov-2. 

Osterholm himself acknowledged last year that the effectiveness of cloth masks was likely to be “limited,” though he himself unequivocally affirmed his support for wearing them in public spaces.

Robert Cook, a professor of epidemiology and medicine at the University of South Florida, admitted that he was “not up to date with the latest, most specific data on cloth masks vs. other types of masks,” but he argued that it “makes common sense to me that someone wearing a cloth mask would block larger respiratory particles and these in turn would block at least some of the smaller viral particles.”

“I would be very surprised if they did ‘little’ to stop the amount of virus in the air around someone,” he continued. “Even if they reduce the number of virus particles by 10%, it could have a significant impact at the community level compared to nothing.”

Other health officials, meanwhile, have been emphatic about the alleged benefits of cloth masking. 

National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins wrote last August that “even if a community universally adopted a crude cloth covering that’s far less than 100 percent protective against the virus, this measure alone could significantly help to reduce deaths.”

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield, meanwhile, argued last July that “cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus.”

A model developed by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, meanwhile, projected last July that wearing cloth masks could save as many as nearly 30,000 lives in less than three months
