Every Executive Needs a Copywriter
Look, it doesn't take a genius to figure out why Republicans are trying to pull this trick in Pennsylvania: They haven't carried our state in a presidential election since 1988. They haven't been able to beat us, so now they're trying to rig the game.
This isn't the first time we've seen Pennsylvania Republicans try to rig the election in their favor. In 2012, they tried to change the rules by passing burdensome voter ID laws that would have had the effect of disenfranchising thousands of Pennsylvanians. We fought those laws in the courts, and won.
Now let's join together again and make sure this latest scheme doesn't fly.

Before Writing to Average Folks Know This
- 50% of adults cannot read a book written at an eighth grade level
- 45 million are functionally illiterate and read below a fifth grade level
- "Short words. Short sentences. Short paragraphs." —Andrew J. Byrne
- "Tests have shown that a sentence of eight words is very easy to read; of 11 words, easy; of 14 words, fairly easy; of 17 words, standard; of 21 words, fairly difficult; of 25 words, difficult; of 29 or more words, very difficult; so this sentence with 54 words, counting numbers, is ranked impossible." —Scott Huch
What's Going on Here?
Ed Rendell has three goals: 1) infuriate voters; 2) scare hell out of us; 3) get action.
