Gov. Wolf stalled the release until after the election

More than 11,000 people who were registered to vote in Pennsylvania were found to not be citizens of the United States — and the state's Democratic governor didn't want anyone to know about it.

What's the story?
Two Republican state lawmakers, Reps. Daryl Metcalfe and Garth Everett, released the information Tuesday. Metcalfe had requested this information from the state in February 2018, but the request was appealed by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, and stalled until Dec. 3, after the elections had already wrapped up.

On Dec. 3, the Pennsylvania Department of State sent a letter to Metcalfe, which indicated that a "possible" 11,198 voter registrations existed for people who were identified by the state as non-citizens.

Pennsylvania is considered a crucial state for the 2020 presidential election.

Metcalfe told the Washington Times that he believed "we need to take action and have those people removed immediately from the rolls," adding "[t]hey were never eligible to vote."

While 11,198 non-citizens were registered, this does not mean that they all voted in the 2018 or 2016 elections.
