Supreme Court turns away PA GOP effort to block extended period for turning in ballots

The Supreme Court on Monday shut down a GOP-led effort to block an extended period for counting ballots in the crucial presidential swing state of Pennsylvania. 

Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the high court's three liberals, resulting in a 4-4 tie. Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh sided with the state GOP.

The court is not at full capacity and was forced to issue a ruling with only eight justices, due to the vacant seat left behind by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which will presumably be filled by President Trump's nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

But give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that their portion is Gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits therefrom, they say: "Why, this is what we were fed with before," for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein spouses purified; and they abide therein (for ever).  (The Cow   25)
