Metcalfe Granted Right-to-Know Appeal, Wolf Still Delays Release of Illegally Voting Foreign Nationa


From the Butler Eagle, March 16, 2018:

State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-12th, sent an open letter to Gov. Tom Wolf Thursday continuing to question the validity of elections in Pennsylvania.

In the letter, Metcalfe asks Wolf to have the Office of Open Records respond to his request for the number of foreign nationals who are illegally registered to vote in the state.

"Were there any illegal foreign nationals voting in the special congressional election between Conor Lamb and Rick Saccone? While the answer may be 'no,' it remains absolutely unacceptable that you refuse to let the public know the answer," he said.

He demanded that Wolf instruct the acting Pennsylvania secretary of state to release the records of illegally registered voters.

On Feb. 2, Metcalfe sent a similar letter in which he wrote that a right-to-know-request he had filed in 2017 and was denied. He filed an appeal to that denial in January.

Metcalfe, who is chairman of the State House Government Committee, referenced a testimony the committee heard in 2016 as well as news reports that indicated foreign nationals had registered to vote and cast votes in Philadelphia between 2006 and 2017.
