Republicans in Pennsylvania have asked Democratic Sen.-elect Lindsey Williams to prove she meets the residency requirements to serve in the state Senate, and may try to block her from taking her seat after her election win last month.

The state constitution holds that lawmakers must live in the state for four years. Senate President Pro-Tempore Joe Scarnati, R., has asked Williams to hand over copies of her driver’s licenses, employment history, tax withholdings, home purchase or rental agreements, among other documents to show she meets that requirement, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a letter Thursday, Scarnati said he questions Williams’ “qualification to be sworn in to serve in accordance with the constitutional requirements,” and gave her seven days to provide the documents he deemed necessary.

    The DemoRats will do anything to steal an election. This is why we must protect the courts because it’s always sent to a court to determine the outcome. Obama stacked the Federal Courts. It is thier plan!
