Pennsylvania Spotlight has uncovered emails from the days following the 2020 election between Fulton County Commissioners Randy Bunch and Stuart Ulsh with Senator Judy Ward and Representative Jesse Topper.
The emails from the Fulton County Commissioners cast doubt on the 2020 election, calling it a “rigged election,” cite tweets from former President Donald Trump, and ask for Senator Judy Ward and Representative Jesse Topper to join Senator Doug Mastriano’s quest to overturn the election.
Commissioner Ulsh emailed Commissioner Bunch, Senator Ward, and Representative Topper from his private email account on November 9th, stating, “The people are asking who all is in this fight with Senator Mastriano.” He continued, “It couldn’t hurt the Trump campaign if our state Representatives all got involved. If we don’t stop this election problems next will be worse. If there were 109 house and 27 senate with Senator Mastriano it would be a big help. The people need this. Respect their vote.”
On November 12, 2020, Commissioner Bunch emailed Senator Judy Ward inquiring about the election results. He wrote, “sending this email to see what’s going on with this rigged election.” The email then went on to say, “Just read a tweet that President Trump put out about the Dominos [sic] voting machines. We can’t let this election get stolen if there is anything I can do please let me know!”
Senator Ward, Representative Topper, and the Fulton County Commissioners continue to spread election misinformation to this day. Senator Ward and Representative Topper signed letters asking the Pennsylvania Congressional Delegation and Congressional leaders to overturn the 2020 election. Senator Ward continued to push Trump’s election lies by advocating for Senator Mastriano’s audit with Wake Technology in Fulton County. They’ve all recently appeared together at a press conference hosted by Senator Doug Mastriano.
