When The Land Of Lebanon County Threatened Rebellion The Petty Little Tyrant Punished

Lebanon County revolts against Gov. Wolf as no other county in Pennsylvania has done…

Wolf ignores all his edicts to lead a BLM protest against the police.

Lebanon County was the last county out of 67 to go “Green” as a result of disobeying PA Gov. Tom Wolf’s unilateral edicts. They did not disobey by hosting and leading a BLM parade against the police as Wolf did, they simply declared that following all CDC guidelines struggling businesses, as a result of Wolf’s edicts, would be permitted to reopen. Wolf then withheld $13M in federal funding from Lebanon County as an additional punishment.

Lebanon County sued and a deal was struck, part of which was that Lebanon County would be required to spend “$2.8 million [of the federal funds on a] campaign to promote the use of mask-wearing“. That’s $2,800,000 that didn’t go to small businesses devastated by Wolf’s mysterious, secret and arbitrary business waivers.

Pennsylvanians will get their chance to take back power from a governor who has overstepped his bounds. Except there’s one big problem: Wolf’s administration crafts the language for ballot measures, and he has put his thumb on the scale to confuse voters and keep his hold on power. Indeed, the wording of the ballot questions would make a typical voter think the legislature was stripping the governor of the ability to respond to a crisis and giving itself unilateral power.

The deceptive language has sparked reaction across the state. Berwood Yost, director of the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College, has said the ballot question wording does not enable voters to make an informed decision: “The most basic rules of question construction are commonsensical: form a question that is easy to understand, uses everyday language, uses words with clear and specific meanings, and is as short as possible.” Yost says the questions use “loaded terminology” and lack clarifying context.
