Ken Starr Says 'To Count Every Vote May Be a Crime,' Blasts Pennsylvania Governor, Supreme Court

Former U.S. Circuit Judge Kenneth Starr told Fox News host Mark Levin that the Pennsylvania state Supreme Court and Governor Tom Wolf made an "unconstitutional decision," claiming many of the votes counted were "illegal."

Starr, who rose to national prominence in the 1990s prosecuting former President Bill Clinton, told Levin Sunday night that Pennsylvania's three-day extension for mail-in ballots was a "constitutional travesty." Levin and Starr both questioned the integrity of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and the state Supreme Court for allowing an emergency order Friday in which every county had to segregate and secure ballots received after 8 p.m. on Election Day. The order did not prevent election workers from continuing to count the ballots, which Starr claimed were "illegal."

Trump himself urged his supporters to watch Levin's program Sunday night, tweeting about his discussion of the "Mail-in Ballot Hoax!"

Levin, a perpetual hypocrite, has blasted news media outlets for declaring Biden President-elect four days after the election. But four years ago, Levin proclaimed Trump exactly that just hours after polls closed on Election Day.

Congratulations to President-elect Trump. That was a historic victory. Almost all the polls and experts were wrong.

Both the fanatically pro-Trump Life, Liberty & Levin host and Starr baselessly accused Democrats of "fixing the system," with Levin claiming they "want earlier and earlier voting" and "later and later counting." Levin said Supreme Court Justice Alito's order "may be in question under our federal constitution...the state Supreme Court may have disenfranchised voters."

"In fact, to count every vote may be a crime," Starr replied. "It may even be a crime under federal law, it's definitely a crime under state law. He added his hope that the Supreme Court will "do its duty" and reverse Biden's "lawless" victory. But Levin said he's "concerned" that even Chief Justice John Roberts may not take Republicans' side, accusing him of making "some cockamamie distinction between a federal and a state court" during a recent ruling against GOP officials.

"There is more evidence of voter fraud than there was ever evidence of Russian collusion," Levin said on Sean Hannity's Fox News program earlier this week. "So those who keep saying, 'Let's see the evidence,' where the hell were you the last four years?"

Levin made the unfounded claim that the Democratic Party defeated Trump by "flooding the system, create chaos, grab power and then accuse your opponent of misbehavior." A tactic, he claimed, which came straight from Marxist ideology.

Despite the unfounded claims on Fox News Sunday night, election officials in Pennsylvania have consistently rejected Trump's baseless accusations of voter fraud, saying both Republican and Democratic representatives were in every polling location. Starr told a single anecdote about one widow who voted for their late spouse as evidence of voter fraud.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar told CNN Thursday that mail-in ballots which arrived after Election Day are a tiny percentage of the nearly 550,000 which were still being counted at the time. In terms of the late mail-in ballots, she said they are "not making or breaking this one way or another."

Starr reiterated that residents of "flyover states" should believe their votes are in peril if Democrats have their way. The longtime Republican said the Electoral College "reflects the beauty of federalism."

Just prior to his appearance on Levin's show Sunday night, Trump tweeted out a clip of Republican Senator Lindsey Graham dismissing news media calls for Biden as President-elect. "This is a contested election," Graham told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.

According to Graham, the Trump team has allegedly "verified" 15 people who were dead among Pennsylvania early voters. Graham said the Trump-led canvassing investigation of all early voters and absentee ballots in Pennsylvania may uncover 100 people who were dead among voter rolls. Biden currently has more than 43,000 more votes than Trump in Pennsylvania.

Republican Party election representatives have until November 17 to complete county canvasses which may challenge election results. The Electoral College convenes to cast their official votes for president on December 14.
