NEWS RELEASE: Federal Lawsuit filed against Tom Corbett and House Majority Leader Rep. Michael Turzai as Defendants in Voter ID scheme

News Release

Dateline: Harrisburg Pennsylvania, September 27, 2012

A group of registered voters comprised of registered Democrats, Republicans and Independents filed suit today in federal district court naming Tom Corbett and House Majority Leader Rep. Michael Turzai as defendants.

The suit alleges that Corbett and Turzai conspired with Republican operatives across the country to violate the rights of registered voters who seek to elect Barack Obama. The suit further alleges that Turzai publicly admitted that the goal and purpose of the two named defendants was to deny the rights of the poor, the elderly, and blacks using state power to skewer the election in Romney’s favor.

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit charged that their federal constitutional rights to work together and cooperate in an effort to elect Obama is being violated by Corbett and Turzai who are using the power of the state to unlawfully interfere with their First Amendment rights.

The lawsuit also raises concerns about creating a national registry of citizens that can be abused by national and state governments akin to allowing the government to spy on people and determine their political beliefs and affiliations.

A brief introduction regarding the Centralia Pennsylvania Federal Lawsuit

The gravamen of this complaint is an attempt by some American citizens, and a Pennsylvania borough, to redress egregious violations of their rights by a group of private persons, with the connivance of state officials and entities. These defendants covet billions of dollars worth of extremely valuable anthracite coal which lies beneath the surface of the Borough of Centralia.

These persons and entities, by and through political connections and the manipulation of governmental agencies and entities, are, among other things, illegally taking the property of the plaintiffs through the unlawful use of government police power.

The original government pretense, if indeed it was ever legitimate, has long since expired. In short the purported “Centralia Mine Fire” which allegedly threatened the Borough of Centralia no longer provides, or never did provide, a viable explanation for the application of government power (exercise of eminent domain) and the taking of these American citizens’ property.

Plaintiffs allege that their rights are being violated by abusive government officials and entities, in concert with private persons, and that they have been exploited by the defendants to accomplish their unlawful ends.

The persistent efforts of this private/government enterprise have resulted in a massive and continuing fraud reflective of both civil and criminal RICO violations.

Perhaps the most succinct characterization of this process is expressed in the wisdom of the Hon. Scott Naus of the Court of Common Pleas of Columbia County when he obviously questioned, through the choice of his words, the basis for the suspicious rush to judgment by individuals and government entities who were purportedly seeking to respond to the dangers of a fire that has never materialized as a threat to Centralia.

The fire has never been investigated. No court has ever held a hearing to determine whether the fire is, or ever was, a threat to the Borough or these plaintiffs. Despite pervasive conflicts in the “evidence” of the alleged “threat” posed by the fires, and the additional evidence of questionable political rationales, the fire that has never reached, and will never reach, Centralia has been allowed to act as an engine of private aggrandizement resulting in the unlawful denigration of citizens’ rights.
