    Some snapped pictures, others watched intently as an official recount of 75 Philadelphia voting divisions took place Friday afternoon at the city's massive voting machine warehouse in Nicetown. The recount of 4 percent of the city's 1,686 voting divisions was the result of a recount campaign launched by Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein in various counties and states throughout the country. Philadelphia City Commissioners, who make up the Board of Elections, agreed to recount ballots in 75 divisions in which there were at least three affidavits for each division from voters asking for a recount. They rejected the request...

    Bill Donohue comments on Hillary Clinton’s speech at an African American church in Philadelphia yesterday: Hillary Clinton took her campaign to Mount Airy Church of God in Christ yesterday afternoon. According to one report, “she urged parishioners of a black church in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood to choose ‘hope over fear’ and vote to send her to the White House.” Another story described how she stood “at a wooden lectern in the center of a purple-carpeted altar,” making her pitch to the faithful. There has been no complaint from the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State,...

    The week-long work stoppage that sidelined subways, trolleys, and buses and threatened to complicate a closely contested presidential election ended in the predawn hours Monday as SEPTA and leadership for the Transportation Workers Union Local 234 reached a tentative five-year contract for 4,738 transit personnel. While the agreement needs to be formally approved by SEPTA's board and union members, it means workers will return to their jobs during the day. The city's mass transit system gradually returned to service Monday morning, with full service promised before Tuesday morning's commuters begin their treks to work — just in time for Election...

    Days after searching the Delaware County office of a Democratic grassroots organization for evidence of voter-registration fraud, state police on Thursday raided a second office - this one in Philadelphia. Agents executed the warrant at FieldWorks LLC's office in North Philadelphia after 5 p.m., seeking, among other things, forms that could be used to "construct fraudulent voter registration forms" and "completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms," court documents show. As in the raid in Norwood, the latest warrant said investigators from the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office suspected "tampering with public records...

Where are all these Clinton supporters the national media keep polling and talking about? The answers are really quite simple. They’re in the same place they were during the 2016 Democrat primary race.

Another top strategist on the campaign, Thomas Lindenfeld, already has testified that he took out a $1 million loan from then-Sallie Mae CEO Al Lord at Fattah's encouragement. Because the donation exceeded city campaign-contribution limits, the loan was made to Lindenfeld's Washington political consulting firm and did not appear on the congressman's campaign filings.

That didn’t happen; with 70 percent of the vote...

Archer appears to have made a trip to Saudi Arabia in 2011 for Hajj, the sacred Muslim pilgrimage, and then to Egypt in 2012. Investigators are looking into whether those trips were related to Friday's shooting.
