In response to the PA House passage of HR 240, PFT President Jerry Jordan issued the following statement:
PHILADELPHIA—"In a desperate maneuver in their waning days of power, the Pennsylvania House Republicans tripled down on their desire to circumvent the will of Philadelphians by voting to move forward with the impeachment of District Attorney Larry Krasner.
"This stunt was full of dangerous, coded rhetoric that does nothing to address the actual issues facing Philadelphians, but instead plainly lays out quite a bit about the character of the representatives who chose to spew such vile rhetoric about our beloved city, its residents, and its elected officials.
"Today's charade, a desperate attempt by the House Republicans to cling to the last bastions of power was an overreach at best, and it will negatively impact something fundamental to our very existence: democracy."
