Target: Loretta Lynch, United States Attorney General
Goal: Stop Republicans from stripping Democratic governor-elect of his power.
Republicans in North Carolina have launched a coup in an attempt to remove governor-elect Roy Cooper from power. They have plans to overhaul the Supreme Court and the judicial system to work entirely in their favor, which will involve racially biased practices and forcing unconstitutional laws. Republicans will also have total control of the election boards, which they used to gut early voting and shut down polling places in minority neighborhoods.
This coup is a biased, immature movement set in motion by extremely sore losers. We cannot allow the Republicans to completely destroy democracy in North Carolina, especially at the cost of minorities. The fact that this coincides with Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election makes this matter especially urgent.
We must protect the democracy of North Carolina at all costs. We must not let the GOP overhaul the Supreme Court and the judicial system just so they can push down the minority groups and have their biased ways take over the state. Sign this petition to help stop this power-grab in its tracks.
Dear Attorney General Lynch,
Republicans in North Carolina are attempting a power-grab from governor-elect Roy Cooper, a Democrat. They intend to take any power he will hold and use it to their own ends in order to overhaul the Supreme Court and the judicial system to their liking. This is an extreme show of bias and selfishness that coincides too strongly with Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election.
You cannot allow this to happen. You must stop these power-grubbing Republicans in their tracks before they can even attempt to meddle with Cooper and his position. This kind of power-grab does nothing but promote unfair racial bias and set the justice system back at least 50 years. Do not let these sore losers ruin a man before he even steps up to his new position.
