For three years now The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on the stolen military ballots during the 2020 election.
But now one organization is fighting back to secure the votes of our military personnel and their families.
And they filed a lawsuit on Tuesday to prevent the left from stealing votes by our military personnel.
On Tuesday the law firm Mohrman, Kaardal and Erickson law firm sued the Pennsylvania Department of State for violating federal election law leading to the dilution of US Military Votes.
Harrisburg, PA – Erick Kaardal announced today that PA Fair Elections filed a complaint against the Pennsylvania Department of State (DoS) alleging violations of federal election laws. The Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) was passed to establish minimum standards for the administration of federal elections including the requirement for verification of identity and eligibility for individuals who seek to vote in a federal election. Many states have verification requirements far beyond the low minimum standard set by HAVA, but no state can legally implement a lesser standard. Unfortunately, the PA Department of State (DoS) has done just that. Through unlawful guidance, the DoS is instructing election officials to violate HAVA and risks the dilution of military votes by allowing ineligible individuals to receive and vote an absentee overseas ballot.
By submitting this complaint, the plaintiffs are seeking to compel the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to protect the rights of the military voters. As the US Supreme Court has stated, the right to vote “can be denied by a debasement or dilution of the weight of a citizen’s vote just as effectively as by wholly prohibiting the free exercise of the franchise.” (Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533, 555 (1964))
“As a combat veteran, I can’t think of a higher priority than protecting the vote of the men and women who serve in our military. Over 75% of the individuals who apply to vote with UOCAVA privileges in PA indicate that they are not military or military family members. All members of the military have valid, verifiable, government-issued identification. Overseas citizens must have verifiable ID as well. It is important to verify the identity and the eligibility of all non-military overseas voters so the ballots of military voters and their families serving our country are not diluted by ineligible overseas voters.” Sean Parnell, Retired US Army Combat Veteran, Captain (Retired), and 2020 Republican nominee for 17th Congressional District in PA.
The Uniformed and Overseas Citizen Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) established the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) as a standard form for use by members of the US military and their family members to both register to vote and to request an absentee ballot. The FPCA can also be used by US citizens who reside outside of the United States but who are not members of the military. This group of non-military UOCAVA eligible voters includes study abroad students, individuals who work outside of the US, and US citizens who reside abroad. The FPCA is a combined voter registration form and absentee ballot application in a single document. Therefore, HAVA’s minimum requirements for voter registration and minimum requirements for voters who vote by mail for the first time apply.
A critical component of HAVA is that the states are required to verify the accuracy of the identification information provided on applications for voter registration. HAVA also requires states to match the applicant’s identification numbers provided against information in official databases prior to voting in a federal election. All members of the military and their eligible family members possess required forms of identification. No persons are even permitted onto a military base without proper, valid, government issued photo ID. Nonmilitary US citizens overseas must possess a passport to travel overseas, or US citizens who have never lived in the United States must possess a birth certificate indicating their citizenship. In 2022, over 75% of all UOCAVA voters in Pennsylvania were non-military.
The relief requested is for an administrative determination, declaration or declaratory judgment:
(1) that Pennsylvania’s Department of State and the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s directives that exempt would-be UOCAVA-eligible voters from first meeting the HAVA identify-verification requirement violate HAVA;
(2) that Pennsylvania’s Department of State and the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s directives must be corrected to a legally-compliant policy that meets the minimum HAVA identity verification requirements for voter applications, i.e., to require voter eligibility and identity verification; and
(3) any other appropriate administrative relief.

Here is our previous reporting on stolen military ballots.
The Gateway Pundit has reported extensively on the 2020 voter fraud scheme involving military ballots in several battleground states.
TGP reported on several instances in three swing states during the 2020 election.
During an Arizona Senate session back in February 2022, the discussion turned to the UOCAVA voters — the voters covered under the Uniform Overseas Civilian Absentee Voting Act. These are the men and women who are serving their country in the military and send in a mail-in vote from where they are stationed outside the country.
The act officially covers:
- members of the United States Uniformed Services and merchant marine;
- their family members; and
- United States citizens residing outside the United States.
During the hearing, Paul Harris, a Maricopa resident and veteran in corporate executive management, spoke to the committee. Harris was a manager during the audit of the Maricopa County audit of the 2020 election ballots.
Paul Harris was tasked with overseeing the UOCAVA ballots during the audit. He described his experience.
Paul Harris: The UOCAVA is the Uniform Overseas Civilian Absentee Voting Act ballot. That ballot is sent out to men and women who work overseas and the people who work overseas to get a chance to work in the election. This is what a ballot looks like that goes out, an 11 1/2 X 19 ballot. When I opened up a box of ballots this is what a ballot looks like that’s a UOCAVA ballot. You know what that is? It’s an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of copy paper.
Paul Harris continued: “Did you all know that our ballots come back like this from our overseas people? Did any of you know thia? It is such a sham that I had people everyday at my table taking pictures of these ballots that were scanned down. It took my team three complete days to count all of the UOCAVA ballots. You know why? Because in 2016 the numbers were apparently 1,600 UOCAVA ballots that came back in the most significant election in our lifetime. In 2020 the numbers were close to 9,600 ballots that came back. And I will tell you as an eye-witness, 95%… all went towards one candidate. And in a state where a candidate won by 10,000 votes that is 8,000 new votes during an election where people were brought home because there was a pandemic… No chain of custody. There’s nothing to identify where this piece of paper came from.
This testimony by Paul Harris is very similar to what we witnessed in Michigan and Georgia.
We have reported on this extensively at The Gateway Pundit.
Democrats obviously organized this method of cheating in several states. We now have testimony in three battleground states of this happening.
But there’s more…
Back in 2020 election worker and witness Kathleen Alby (sp?) testified at the November 2020 Arizona Senate Hyatt hearing for Rudy Giuliani.
She said baskets of “military faxes” in Pima County were converted to actual ballots at stations with just one person.
The cubicles only had one chair, no observers. She said hundreds (probably thousands) of these ballots had no chain of custody. She and other election workers could not get questions answered regarding this shady process.
AZ State Senator: “Were there a lot of those duplicates (military ballots)?”
Ms. Alby: “Yes. Thousands of them. At one point that’s all that they were processing were the faxed ones.”
Ms. Alby later described the thousands of ballots faxed in from overseas or wherever they were coming from.
Ms. Alby: “I complained about the chain of custody of all of these faxes because there were so many, and I questioned that. Because I wasn’t sure, I mean, I could be in Michigan and I could fax something to Pima County. It could be rerouted anywhere, through any fax. And how do I know it didn’t come from Afghanistan? “
Again, this appears to be a highly coordinated tactic used by the left in several battleground states.
We saw it in Michigan. We saw it in Georgia.
Fun Fraud Fact of the Day: “All 900 military ballots in Fulton County [Georgia] were 100% for Joe Biden.”
In what alternate universe does this happen? In 2016, Trump won the military vote 60% to 34%.🧐 pic.twitter.com/Gzc4j0h8YB

We also saw this in Michigan in 2020 where ALL of the Detroit military ballots went to Joe Biden.
If we had a Republican Party that gave a damn about voter fraud, they would not be ignoring this.
