Here we go again. Jeff City politicians & lobbyists think they know better than Missouri voters. Join the fight to protect #FairMaps today! → https://bit.ly/2VUlrqE #MOLeg @CleanMissouri

Missouri voters rejected gerrymandering by a 2:1 margin, but some politicians in Jeff City STILL think they know better. Let’s remind #MOLeg who they work for → https://bit.ly/2VUlrqE

Fair maps are the law in Missouri. Call on your legislators to focus on bigger priorities than overturning the will of the people → https://bit.ly/2VUlrqE @CleanMissouri #MOLeg

Some politicians and lobbyists think they know better than 1,469,093 Missourians. Tell #MOLeg keep their hands OFF fair maps and tackle real priorities → https://bit.ly/2VUlrqE @CleanMissouri

Here’s what LAWMAKERS are saying about SJR38 and Clean Missouri/Amendment 1

“The drafters of SJR38 got too cute by half,” said attorney Mark E. Moreland, President-Elect of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. “Buried in the final pages of SJR38, they essentially admit that their intent is to produce gerrymandered maps — by limiting citizens’ ability to challenge unfair maps in court, and by placing new limits in the constitution on what judges can do to fix rigged maps, even if they find a map to be illegal.”

Outrageous even by Jeff City Standards – Kansas City Star

This will go down in flames! – Springfield News-Leader

Gerrymandering isn’t going to fix itself – the time is NOW to let your legislators know you won’t stand for this unfair, unreasonable undoing of fair maps!
