DNC Launches Rendell Robocalls Over Pileggi Plan

The DNC has launched robocalls against 10 GOP state Senators featuring former Gov. Ed Rendell. He urges listeners to call their state Senator to oppose a plan to change the way Pa. allocates its presidential vote.

“They’re trying to change the rules to rig the game for the Republicans because they lost fair and square in 2012. [Name of Senator] can stop this bill. The Republican Party is scheming to rig the next election because they can’t win on the issues,” Rendell says.

The plan introduced by Sen. Dominic Pileggi (D-Delaware) would allocate Pennsylvania’s electoral college votes proportionally instead of the current winner-take-all system.

PoliticsPA reported Saturday on the push by the DNC and other liberal groups to preempt the bill – which isn’t likely to become law in any case. Rendell, a former DNC Chairman, wrote an op-ed for the DNC last week.

PoliticsPA is seeking details on the size and scope of the calls, which were not yet released by the DNC. The calls were first reported by Tom Fitzgerald.

Sens. Pat Browne, Mike Brubaker, Jake Corman, Edwin Erickson, Stewart Greenleaf, Chuck McIlhinnery, Dominic Pileggi, Lloyd Smucker, Tommy Tomlinson and Donald White are the targets; they represent a mix of safe GOP seats and potential 2014 Democratic targets.

Here’s a copy of the call going out on Erickson and the one targeting Tomlinson.

  1. Should not the title of this be Ed Rendell Backs His Own Pocket Book.

    WE THE PEOPLE need to send Ed and all local officials that have anything to do with Poisoning are ground and water a message stop worrying get to love Jail.


    Hydraulic Fracturing a Danger to us All.

    Why would anyone think we have water to waste.

    Some one forgot to tell all about all the poison chemicals that this ungodly Lisa Jackson gave a green light to put in are ground and water.
    And help the Industry, so to they will never have to disclose all the poison chemicals they have used.

    Only the wicked in mind Leaders in this Nation and around the world would let anyone Pipe Pollution into the ground to get gas in return from the Ground. Most all scientist have know this for many years that this will end safe drinking water for all that are in the area of where they are fracturing, in which Millions of Gallons of Dangerous Poison Chemically Treated Water are forced underground to break up rock and free gas. We need regulations from GODLY People that will stop 10,000+ wells a year drilled using hydraulic fracturing to free and make the Dangerous Poison Chemicals underground into gas. The primarily affect will be unsafe drinking water and many will become sick. THE HEALTH OF MANY WILL DETERIORATE because of A Few Wicked Greedy Leaders. Those who have made these decisions do not know Jesus Christ. Soon He will say i know you not. They belong in jail soon it will be hell for them. What sick in mind would let or want anyone to put Dangerous Poison Chemicals underground or into the ground anywhere.

    The wicked are trying to sell and tell all if it is not near your home or land it is safe. This is the biggest ling of horse manure. Do they think most of We The People are that dumb or that most Americans lack any intelligence at all. What ever is put on or in the ground makes it way to our underground Aquifers, Rivers, Lakes and the Oceans. Every Scientist on Earth knows this and most all that have made it to eighth grade in school.

    So why would any Leader with a good healthy mind ever say or want this?

    Vote any wicked that has anything to do with this out of office they work for WE THE PEOPLE. Then need to go to jail. Soon it will be not jail but Hell. Revelation 11:18

    Wicked Leaders telling their friends as long as you can cover it up and it will not get back to me it is ok with me. Are you sure we will not go to jail for making money by Polluting the ground and water. Of course not we make the laws to fit our needs not the health and welfare of others or as they used to say We The People. Its now the Wicked Leaders and rich Rule. Till our Lord GOD comes!

    Solar Energy the way to go.
    Many States Are and are Banning Fracking.

    Archimedes and Albert Einstein
    These two are at the top of the list of the World’s Greatest Scientists,
    Viewed by Scientist around the World.

    Sad that for the last 25 years or so of every teacher asked no matter what
    Grade k through 16. At least 80% of them did not know Archimedes. Even sadder 90%
    of them could not tell you what one of the most Brilliant Scientist to ever
    live on Earth. Won the Nobel Prize for.

    It was for the work Albert Einstein did to show the World it could get
    Free Energy, Electric from the SUN. (THE PHOTOVOLTAIC EFFECT).
    There is enough Energy from our SUN to power all are needs and more.

  2. Can some partisan Democrat explain to me why all the Democrats were in favor of this after Bush v. Gore and are now opposed? It is a common sense bill and should be national law quite frankly. How can you argue the vote count shouldn’t equal the actual vote count?

  • Will Doug Mastriano Run For U.S. Senate?

    • No. Not Enough Support From Mainstream GOP. (91%)
    • Yes. Let Doug Be Doug. (9%)

    Total Voters: 892
