Some Philadelphia radio personalities are adding to the speculation that there will be excessive voter fraud during the upcoming election, according to left-leaning publication Media Matters.

Fueling the discussion are three rulings by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The decisions extend the deadline for accepting mail ballots, allow voters to submit their ballots through drop boxes, and remove the Green Party’s candidate for president from the ballot.

Trump campaign staffer Mike Roman recently appeared on The Dom Giordano Program on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT and theorized that antifa was planning to destroy Trump ballots at election offices. “They feel even if they get caught the punishment will be minimal, and they’ll be celebrated the rest of their lives as part of the resistance to stop the evil one Trump. So, anything is possible here.”

In 2016, Roman was hired by Donald Trump to provide election protection after Trump insisted that dead people and immigrants are voting in the United States.

Roman also appeared on Chris Stigall’s show on AM 990 The Answer. Stigall told Roman that there should be protections in place on election day at polling locations. “It’s a polling place. If people are casting votes, it’s a polling place. There’s no way to spin it and they’re trying because they don’t want to be seen doing whatever it is they’re doing in there.”

Rich Zeoli of Talk Radio 1210 WPHT there is a “motivation to make sure fake ballots get mailed.”

Talk show host Dan Bongino ripped CBS’ 60 Minutes interview that took place on Sunday evening as “awful” and said it is “getting harder and harder to watch some news outlets flush their reputation down the toilet bowl.” Bongino made the comments during Fox and Friends Monday morning.

“I can’t believe history will not look back on this moment and not look back in horror about what’s going on,” Bongino said. “You have a potential presidential candidate in Joe Biden who could be in the back pocket of one of the nuclear-powered enemies of the United States of America.”

Bongino criticized 60 Minutes host Norah O’Donnell for not asking what he deemed the two most important questions one could ask Biden: Are the emails from the New York Post story real and Is Joe Biden the “big man” that the story referred to?

Bongino called the 60 Minutes interview a “disgrace to journalism.” Sunday’s one-hour special featured interviews with President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, and his running mate Kamala Harris.

“This is an opportunity that I never thought would come when I left the station many years ago,” Hedrick said. “WFMD holds a special place in my heart. I got started in the business here and I have always dreamed of returning but I never thought it would be in this role. WFMD is committed to local issues, local talk, and local content.

Reporter Jane Mayer was on the infamous Zoom call when her colleague Jeffrey Toobin was allegedly masturbating, according to a report.

This is not the first case of sexual misconduct that The New Yorker reporter has been involved with. Two years ago, Mayer reported on the sexual escapades of former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. In 2018, she wrote an article accusing then-Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

The Toobin story was first reported by Vice Monday. The news prompted The New Yorker to suspend Toobin and for CNN, where he is the chief legal analyst, to grant him a leave of absence.

Toobin told Vice that the mistake was “embarrassing” and “stupid” and said that he thought he had muted the Zoom video. He was on the call acting out an election simulation with several high-profile reporters when the incident happened. Toobin was reportedly playing the role of the courts.

Mayer and Toobin have worked together for more than two decades. She joined the New Yorker in 1995 right at the same time as when Toobin was reporting on the OJ Simpson case. Mayer wrote a controversial piece about Democratic Sen. Al Franken who resigned amid accusations that he forcibly kissed someone 11 years earlier.
