PA state senator says he’s initiating a “forensic investigation” of 2020 election

Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano, a Republican Trump supporter, is pushing for a “forensic investigation” of the 2020 election.

Mastriano tweeted “A forensic investigation of our election results and processes for the 2020 General Election and the 2021 Primary will go a long way to restore trust in our system.”

He continues in his statement “Today, as Chair of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee, I issued letters to several counties requesting information and materials needed to conduct a forensic investigation of the 2020 General Election and the 2021 Primary.”

“We have asked these counties to respond by July 31st with a plan to comply. The counties represent different geographical regions of Pennsylvania and differing political makeups. Some are Republican while others are Democrat, which means that this will be a balanced investigation,” he added.
