FOUR RALLIES SUPPORTING VOTERS' CHOICE TO BE HELD THIS SUNDAY IN SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA
Democratic and Republican operatives filed papers Monday to have every single third-party statewide candidate thrown off the November ballot, as well as a number of local candidates.
In response, four sequential rallies will be held on Sunday, August 15, 2010, at the homes of four of the operatives who filed the papers, including Ernest S. Angelos, Joseph A.Sestak, Patricia A. Weschler, and Walter S. Zimolong. The ralliers will be calling on the four to withdraw their petition challenges and to publicly condemn use of punitive and discriminatory election laws to suppress voter choice.
According to Marakay Rogers, the Libertarian candidate for
Governor and one of the targets of the legal action,
"Pennsylvania voters can see for themselves this year how badly both old parties want to fight against democracy in action. If they're so convinced they're right, why are they afraid of voters hearing other messages?"
Steve Scheetz, Chair of the Montgomery County Libertarian Party, observed,
"The use of the court system to crush any competition is
abhorrent. And in light of Bonusgate, I can't help but wonder how much of the taxpayers' money is being used to fund their challenge."
Jim Babb, a co-organizer of the rally, expressed a similar sentiment.
"If these Republican and Democrat operatives are successful, they will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the democratic process in Pennsylvania is a sham.
The constitutional guarantee of 'free and equal' elections is a joke.
The ruling elites will stop at nothing to preserve their cartel.
They can't freely loot the public treasury if voters can actually choose alternatives.
Keeping voter choices narrowed between Thief A and Thief B assures that the criminals win."
Bob Small of the Delaware County Green Party and
founder of the Pennsylvania Ballot Access Coalition added,
"The signature process is so tangled and so open to exploitation that our legislators should pass the Voters' Choice Act, SB252, to correct it so we can all have freedom of choice at the polls."
