Got an email from the PA Dems yesterday. Subject line of the email was “CHEATING.” Oh NO! The evil Republican Governor and his minions in the State Legislature are once again floating a proposal to more equitably distribute the electoral college votes! To actually reflect the will of the voters of each Congressional District! EEEEEEVVVVVIIIILLLLL! How dare they try to take away Philly’s power over the rest of the state! CHEATING? The Dems accusing anyone of cheating? Pot meet kettle!
See for yourself!
Friend –They are at it again.Harrisburg Republicans – led by Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi – are once again trying to rig the Electoral College to benefit Republicans by splitting Pennsylvania’s electoral votes.You might remember that Governor Corbett and Pileggi tried to do it in 2011 and now Pileggi is trying to change the law again.Pileggi said his proposal would “more accurately reflect the will of the voters in our state.”Nothing could be farther from the truth.It is nothing more than a partisan power grab aimed at helping Republican candidates win the Presidency. If Pileggi had his way, Barack Obama would have only won 12 of the 20 electoral votes in Pennsylvania.The new attempt is part of a national GOP push to change the way electoral votes are awarded in blue states.(Link to petition removed. Those who want to sign it can go find it on their own lol)Republicans are spending more time trying to help Republican politicians than the people of Pennsylvania.We beat the proposal in 2011 and, together, we will again in 2013.-Jim Burn
