The chaos unfolding in the House of Representatives as Republicans try to elect a new Speaker is truly alarming, but the most frightening part is how many members of the “Sedition Caucus” are vying for the title. We cannot afford for a January 6th insurrectionist to be second-in-line for the presidency.
We also know there’s no way an insurrectionist House Speaker would support our cannabis legalization and expungement agenda. Even worse, an insurrectionist as Speaker would not only stall our advocacy efforts but could also jeopardize the democratic values we hold dear.
We’re joining forces with Patriotic Millionaires to demand the House reject ANY candidate with insurrectionist ties for the Speaker role. And with votes going on all week, we need to make sure Congress hears our voices immediately. Add your name to our joint petition now >>
MAGA extremists continue to push the Republican party further to the right, and an insurrectionist House Speaker could help them overturn democratic elections. Think about when Speaker Nancy Pelosi validated the 2020 election results in the House. It’s crystal clear that a Speaker with ties to the “Sedition Caucus” would not uphold the same standards.
The stakes are high, not just for cannabis legalization, but for the broader systemic changes BOWL PAC stands for—including the fundamental right to bodily autonomy. A Speaker like Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, or Jim Jordan with extreme views could hinder much-needed progress on these fronts.
Thank you for taking action in this critical time.
