HARRISBURG – After aiding House Democrats in an attempted illegal takeover of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives by recognizing a non-existent Democrat majority, Rep. Dawn Keefer (R-York/Cumberland) circulated a co-sponsorship memo
for a resolution that would remove House Chief Clerk Brooke Wheeler for cause.
“By aiding Rep. McClinton in an attempted illegal and unprecedented takeover of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives when the plain numbers show Republicans hold a 101-99 House majority following the death of Tony DeLuca and resignations of Summer Lee and Austin Davis, House Chief Clerk Brooke Wheeler—the House Democrats’ hand-picked Clerk—must be removed from her office for abetting and recognizing this attempt at an illegitimate power grab,” said Keefer.
“Constitutional officers hold dispassionate, non-partisan positions of public trust and confidence. By aiding House Democrats in their illegal behavior and picking sides, Chief Clerk Wheeler has broken that trust and destroyed that confidence. She is no longer fit to serve in her position, and I will be introducing this resolution seeking her removal,” Keefer concluded.
