Protect First Amendment Rights in Arizona - Remove Pearce from Leadership

This petition had 551 supporters

In a room full of corporate CEOs, Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce threatened to lock up public sector workers in desert tent cities if they chose to excercise their First Amendment rights (like workers did in Wisconsin). 

At a Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Senate President Russell Pearce explained what he'd do if workers decided to protest like they did in Wisconsin:

“I’ve spoken with the sheriff, and he has some nice buses that hold a lot of people. We’ve also got some tents with a view.”

Sen. Pearce’s comments were originally reported in the Yellow Sheet Report on May 10th. “In all seriousness, I find it deeply chilling that an elected official finds it funny to discuss jailing a group of people expressing their First Amendment rights,” said  Rebekah Friend. “Suggesting a police crackdown before a rally has even occurred is just more of the same intimidation, threats and innuendo we’ve come to expect from Senator Pearce and his crony Arpaio.”  

Enough is enough. It's time to dethrone "King" Russell Pearce from his seat as Senate President. Join us in calling on the Arizona Senate to remove him from his leadership position - effective immediately.
