    Pennsylvania lawmakers file lawsuit against Shapiro, Biden over election-related orders – By Pennlive.com Staff (Triblive) / Jan 25, 2024

    A group of conservative Pennsylvania lawmakers have filed suit against President Joe Biden and Gov. Josh Shapiro over their use of executive authority in election matters.

    In the 33-page complaint filed in U.S. Middle District Court, the Pennsylvania Freedom Caucus asks the court to halt activities authorized through executive orders that expand voter registration and outreach.

    They claim the orders are unconstitutional in that they removed guardrails legislators put in place to ensure fair elections and deprive legislators of their civil rights.

    Rep. Dawn Keefer, R-York County, who heads the Pennsylvania Freedom Caucus, said in a statement, “The citizens of Pennsylvania have been victimized by extraordinary overreach of executive officials who have made changes to election laws with no authority to do so.”
