This petition had 42 supporters
Governor Roy Cooper: The unconstitutionally seated state legislature, immune to the will of the people, has stripped your office of power in a display of grotesque partisanship.
The people chose you. If the legislative districts were drawn fairly we would have chosen a different legislature. Use your constitutionally protected power of Clemency to empower the People.
Declare that you will use the power of the governor's office to pardon anyone charged and convicted for constitutionally protected non-violent protest.
Article III Sec. 5: "Clemency. The Governor may grant reprieves, commutations, and pardons, after conviction, for all offenses (except in cases of impeachment), upon such conditions as he may think proper, subject to regulations prescribed by law relative to the manner of applying for pardons. The terms reprieves, commutations, and pardons shall not include paroles." #PardonDemocracy
