Tell the PA Senate President: You're Not Above the Law

To be delivered to Sen. Joseph Scarnati (PA-25)

Petition Statement

As a Pennsylvanian, I urge you to comply with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court order requesting the current boundaries of our state's municipalities and precincts.

Everyone is required to respond to a court order. It's very troubling that you are willing to risk being in contempt of court to defend Pennsylvania's unconstitutional and gerrymandered district lines.
There are currently 726 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

Our state Senate president wants to keep Pennsylvania’s gerrymandered district lines exactly as they are – even if it means breaking the law.

Pennsylvania’s political districts are so wildly gerrymandered that the state Supreme Court ordered the legislature to throw out the congressional maps and draw new ones before the next election. But Senate President Joe Scarnati has refused. He’s appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. And now he’s defying a Pennsylvania Supreme Court order asking for data on the state’s current district boundaries so that the court can prepare to redraw district lines if the legislature won’t do it.

Senate leaders have rigged the system for long enough. Tell Senator Scarnati that even though he’s the Senate President, he still must follow the law like everyone else. Urge him to stop defending gerrymandered districts.
