Thomas W. Corbett, the neo-fascist Governor of Pennsylvania,
is positioned to appoint people to vacancies in the State
Department of Environmental Protection.
Corbett, as the Republican candidate for Governor of
Pennsylvania in 2010, took millions of dollars in campaign
contributions from oil and gas interests.
Obviously, Thomas W. Corbett has a conflict of interest
wider than Pennsylvania itself, which ought to preclude
his involvement in appointing any further appointees
to positions in the Department of Environmental
Protection, or any other position having to do with
State government oversight of any matters having
to do with the agriculture, fisheries, forests, geology
or soils of the State, as well as the environment.
.
We, the undersigned, call upon the State Supreme
Court to grant any citizens' injunction which shall
preclude any further appointment powers of Governor
Corbett in these above areas of oversight; and we
call upon the State Supreme Court to approve alternative
appointment arrangements for any such vacancies which
have occurred or shall occur in any State office as described
above, for the duration of the effective governorship of the
above named individual, Thomas W. Corbett.
Furthermore, we petition the Court to make alternative
arrangements for the appointment of any and all such
officials to fill such vacancies, via the State Supreme
Court itself appointing a committee which shall have the
power to recommend to the State legislature, such
appointments as would otherwise be made by the
Governor, absent of any such aforementioned
conflict of interest so blatant as to raise the question
of judicial injunction as in this case.
We further recommend that the individuals to be
appointed to this committee may include, as
appointment by the State Supreme Court to the
position of Committee Chairman and officers,
Joanne Fiorito, William Henry, Maria Payan and
Rebecca Power; activists on citizens' Marcellus
Shale groups; as well as Elizabeth Grieco and
Erin Agnew; and may include out-of-state experts
such as Dr. Anthony Ingraffea of Cornell University,
and Sean Ono Lennon and Angela Monti-Fox, of New York.
.
In this way, the consequences of conflict of interest
in this context may be scrupulously avoided for
the benefit of the greater good for the greater number.
.

      This is an attempt to collect a debt - a debt which our
      honorable Courts owe to the people of the United States -
      a debt which is long overdue - the obligation to pay their
      respects to our Constitution in Pennsylvania. Yes, the
      courts have made some token payments on this debt,
      but the time has come to pay in full, now; and this is a
      demand note to RESTORE the Constitution and the
      Rule of Law in the USA - not just in Pennsylvania, but
      in all 50 States, and in all US Territories including
      Guantanamo. We want the President to quit fooling
      around with political cronies, stop with the photo ops,
      and get down to business - and we will be looking over
      the shoulder of all courts, legislators and executives
      as they sign on the dotted line - or we will declare
      them DELINQUENT, and haul them out of power.
      This petition is an historic challenge to corruption,
      and the first major challenge to Executive Privilege
      since US v. Nixon in 1974.
      We intend to win that challenge.

      There is one thing I would like to add to this petition -
      one important detail. If possible, the petition to the
      Pennsylvania State Supreme Court to require an
      alternate procedure for appointing further officials to
      current and future vacancies in the State Department
      of Environmental Protection could be written to allow
      those committee members appointed by the Court
      in order to appoint State DEP officials as though
      the Committee has gubernatorial powers,
      to each select one additional committee member
      themselves; so that the committee to appoint
      qualified individuals to the State DEP would be half
      appointed by the State Supreme Court, and half
      appointed by itself. In that way, the committee would
      be more likely to be completely independent of
      special influence and less likely to be fraught with
      the conflict of interest we have seen during the
      past two years and four months of this
      gubernatorial administration in Harrisburg.

      Why? Because we have a ringside seat for what's happening with fracking in northern PA and we know it's all because Gov. Corbett basically is on the payroll with gas/fracking interests.
