Some people who filed an affidavit for Allegheny County in the Pennsylvania presidential recount received a big, fat surprise today: Notification that there will be a hearing, tomorrow, in the Court of Common Pleas.
A two inch stack of papers containing a copy of everyone who filed an affidavit was sent by the Law Offices of Meyer Unkovic & Scott and attorney Ronald L. Hicks, Jr.(a self-described "Pennsylvania business and oil and gas rights trial lawyer)". These are the same folks who represented the Republicans who attempted to squash the recount in the first place.
The hearing will be held, tomorrow, December 2, 2016 at 11:00 am at the City-County Building, 414 Grant Street, Room 707. It will be presided over by the Honorable Joseph M James (notable for having struck down Pittsburgh sick leave and security guard training ordinances).
While many who filed have received the packet, so far, not all have.
I assume the mainstream media will be there...
It's worth noting at this time that this past summer, Steve Bannon (chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Trump and former chief curator of the "alt-right") somehow “knew” precisely which swing states Donald Trump would flip (Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan).
