MEDIA ADVISORY: National, State, Local Officials to Call on Corbett to Denounce Election-Rigging at Press Events in Philadelphia and Harrisburg

Top Pennsylvania elected officials, including U.S. Rep. Robert Brady, state Treasurer Rob McCord, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale and state Sen. Anthony Williams, Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla, along with J. Whyatt Mondesire, Philadelphia President of the NAACP, will hold two press events next week calling on Gov. Tom Corbett to denounce his party’s plan to rig Pennsylvania’s electoral vote.

Brady, Williams, Squilla and Mondesire will speak at a press event in Philadelphia on Monday, June 3. McCord and DePasquale will hold a press event in Harrisburg on Tuesday, June 4.

Gov. Corbett has evaded questions about a plan proposed by state Sen. Dominic Pileggi that would dilute Pennsylvania’s influence in Presidential elections. In April, People For the American Way delivered over 100,000 petitions urging the governor to reject the plan.
