The legitimacy of more than 800,000 names on the voting rolls in three Pennsylvania counties is being questioned in a lawsuit by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.  Ineligible voters are people who have died or who have moved and are living in another county or state.  Inactive voters can still vote, but must have a signed affidavit to vote should they want to head back to the polls.  Judicial Watch’s president, Tom Fitton, says Bucks, Chester and Delaware counties failed to make reasonable efforts to remove ineligible voters from their rolls as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). In January, CBS Pittsburgh reported that because of the threat of a lawsuit from Judicial Watch, Allegheny County removed 69,000 inactive voters. Judicial Watch also filed a lawsuit against North Carolina to force the state to clean its voter rolls, and sent letters to counties in California, Virginia, and Colorado.


Authorities say a German Shepherd was stolen late last month in Mifflin County.  According to Regional Police, the dog named ‘Harley’ was spooked by fireworks and ran from Susan Drive to East Main Street in Belleville.  An unidentified male driving a white SUV retrieved ‘Harley’ and claimed he would take care of the dog.  The man, who had gray hair and glasses, was not the dog’s owner.  ‘Harley’ was last seen wearing a Penn State collar.  Anyone with information should contact the Mifflin County Communications center at 717-248-1900.
