Right To Know Requests Filed By PA Republican Party

HARRISBURG – The Republican Party of Pennsylvania filed Right to Know requests with the Governor’s Office and the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts to determine the level of collusion, if any, between the Wolf Administration, Democrat state Supreme Court Justices, their privately retained experts, and/or any collusion between the Governor’s Office and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee and its associated political action committee. The party says it was recently reported that the National Democratic Redistricting Committee PAC donated $250,000 to Tom Wolf’s reelection campaign just days after federal courts refused to issue stay requests in ongoing redistricting litigation. PA GOP Chairman Val DiGiorgio said, “In a flagrant disregard for the rule of law, Democrat Justices on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court plunged the Commonwealth into a constitutional crisis by ignoring the separation of powers, constitutionally-delegated authority, and even their own order by issuing a judicially-mandered Congressional map that does nothing but allow Democrats to have an unfair advantage in the coming mid-term election.” He added, “The Court developed their map without any transparency, leaving more questions than answers. So we are using the proper, legally prescribed channels to find out what public documents might exist to determine what level of collusion, if any, existed between the Justices, the Wolf Administration, their privately retained experts, and/or the National Democratic Redistricting Committee that led to the unconstitutional development and implementation of this map.”
