I mean really … from Philly.com
Gov. Rendell was among at least 30 governors to receive a letter this week from an extremist antigovernment group demanding that he resign or face being “removed from office,” according to officials in the Philadelphia office of the FBI.
Rendell received the letter within the last 48 hours and immediately turned it over to federal authorities, FBI Special Agent J.J. Klaver said.
Klaver said the letter was from a so-called sovereign citizens group that is “advocating a plan to remove all state governors from office.”
“These are individuals who reject all forms of government authority, and they believe they are emancipated from all the responsibilities associated with being U.S. citizens, such as paying taxes and obeying laws,” Klaver said.
People are going to crazy town and this incredibly screwed up version of states' rights logic feeds right into the paranoia. To be fair, these folks hate all government since they actually targeted states, but I have this gut feeling the 30 Governors might have something in common. Well, sure they do — they are Governors.
I know this is a federal matter and the PA AG can't do much, but he can rethink his assinine political pandering on the public dime and the precedent it sets.
