PETITION TO ROMNEY:
To: Mitt Romney, Republican presidential nominee:
Whereas, you are now officially the leader of the Republican Party;
Whereas, Karl Rove is a high-profile political consultant and leader of a superpac supporting your candidacy for the presidency;
Whereas, Rove has disgraced himself by “joking” about the murder of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and candidate for the U.S. Senate;
Whereas, Rove’s continued active participation and leadership in the party’s effort to regain control of the U.S. Senate, elect you as president and bolster Republican control of the House is both demoralizing and distracting for your campaign and the crucial elections across the country for the U.S. Congress:
SIGN THE PETITION
We, the undersigned, urge you to take decisive action to denounce Karl Rove’s statement to a group of major Republican donors and urge him to step aside from all political activities and public appearances for the duration of the campaign.
