VPP Outside Counsel Ambassador Norm Eisen’s Statement On U.S. Supreme Court Denying Cert On Two 2020 Election Cases

Published: 2.22.21

In response to the U.S. Supreme Court denying certiorari in the two remaining 2020-election related cases (Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Degraffenreid; Corman v. Pennsylvania Democratic Party), Ambassador Norm Eisen, Outside Counsel to the Voter Protection Program released the following statement:

“The decision by the high Court today to refuse to take up the remaining 2020 election-related cases from Pennsylvania underscores what we know to be true: that election was safe, secure, and accurate. These challenges were brought to undo the will of the voters, and the Court decisions today should remove the unwarranted shadow cast over Pennsylvania’s election administration–and the 2020 election writ-large.”

“The fact that three dissenters saw it differently and would have granted unmerited review is a reminder that our elections remain vulnerable to future interference from many directions. That is why we need decisive and broad Congressional action to safeguard them such as HR 1.”
