Senator Cris Dush (R-Jefferson) offered the below statement after Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte) placed him in charge of an “election integrity” undertaking:
“The people of Pennsylvania are experiencing a crisis of confidence in our elections, and I take my newfound responsibility to conduct an election integrity investigation very seriously.
“There have been stories that Senate Pro Tempore Corman has moved this investigation to me for the purpose of killing it. The opposite is true. We should have been having hearings and moving toward a more formalized plan to conduct an investigation weeks ago. My team and I are in the process of getting things organized and will work with Senate Leadership to get it done.”
