One top Democrat was forced to resign over this major election error

Americans need confidence in the integrity of their elections.

A key state just took a major step on that front.

And that’s because one top Democrat was forced to resign over this major election error.

Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar resigned following a massive error where her office failed to follow proper procedures for a ballot initiative.

The Pennsylvania Department of State is required to advertise any proposed constitutional amendment in two newspapers in every county in the state.

Boockvar’s department did not follow those guidelines.

In announcing her resignation, Pennsylvania’s Democrat Governor Tom Wolf stated that this error did not have anything to do with the administration of the 2020 Presidential Election.

“This change at the Department of State has nothing to do with the administration of the 2020 election, which was fair and accurate,” Wolf declared. “The delay caused by this human error will be heartbreaking for thousands of survivors of childhood sexual assault, advocates and legislators, and I join the Department of State in apologizing to you. I share your anger and frustration that this happened, and I stand with you in your fight for justice.”

For her part, Boockvar explained that her decision to resign was a basic function of accountability for public officials.

“I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished for the people of Pennsylvania,” Boockvar wrote in a statement . “I’ve always believed that accountability and leadership must be a cornerstone of public service. While I only became aware of the mistake last week, and immediately took steps to alert the administration to the error, I accept responsibility on behalf of the department.”

Americans must have faith that election officials and judges will follow the rules come election time and not try to manipulate them for partisan gain.

Boockvar’s resignation was actually a refreshing admission of error at a time when many Americans do not believe they can trust election results.
