Shake Up in Pennsylvania Government After Botched Constitutional Amendment
We already know that the people running the government in Pennsylvania are completely incompetent tools.
There’s Governor Tom Wolf who has been one of the biggest tyrants during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Then there is “Rachel” Levine aka Richard who is a transgender individual who is was Secretary of Health in Pennsylvania and has now been appointed to a role in the Biden administration for health.
How can this person even the head of an organization about health when he suffers from mental health issues himself?
Then there is the Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar. As it turns out, she just resigned on Monday after failing to comply with Pennsylvania state election law. Hmm…who would have imagined that?
The Department of State failed to advertise a proposed constitutional amendment that would extend retroactively the timeline for victims to file civil actions against their abusers. Because of the error, the process to amend the constitution must now start from the beginning, unless the General Assembly pursues this initiative through the bill process.
Gov. Wolf said about the matter,
“This change at the Department of State has nothing to do with the administration of the 2020 election, which was fair and accurate. The delay caused by this human error will be heartbreaking for thousands of survivors of childhood sexual assault, advocates and legislators, and I join the Department of State in apologizing to you. I share your anger and frustration that this happened, and I stand with you in your fight for justice.”
Just to give you a better picture of how what the problem is, the Department of State was constitutionally required to advertise the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment in two newspapers in every county, in each of the three months before the next general election when members of the General Assembly are elected. That advertising did not occur before the 2020 general election.
So basically, they didn’t advertise in the paper properly in order for people to have a good understanding of what was being voted upon.
