September 16, 2020 | Media News

Professor Edward Foley, an expert in the area of election law, was recently interviewed by Fox News for an article titled, “President Pelosi? How a contested election brawl could unfold on Capitol Hill.”

“I don’t know what your sixth grade grammar teacher was like, but mine said, ‘Never use the passive voice,’” said Foley. “If you read the 12th Amendment, it uses the passive voice at the critical moment. It says the ‘the votes shall be counted.’ These are the electoral college votes coming from the states. And it doesn’t really specify who it talks about.”
