Mike Panetta: Call the Speaker.

Mike Panetta is the DC Shadow Representive (not to be confused with Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton) and while I’m not sure adding an amendment is a “rare parliamentary procedure”, it does strike me that his point is fairly clear: Let’s get a vote held on the DC Voting Rights Act!

In specific, Shadow Rep Panetta would like you to call Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer to get them to get working on the DC Voting Rights Act. Specifically:

Can you please take a minute and make two phone calls to help with this effort? I need you to call both Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. Both have been champions on this issue and we need to thank them for their leadership in this fight. They also need to hear from people that this bill needs to brought back to the House floor this week before the upcoming recess.

Their phone numbers are below:

Speaker Pelosi: (202) 225-0100

Majority Leader Hoyer: (202) 225-3130

Please make the following points on your phone call:

* You are calling in regards to the DC Voting Rights Act
* You are very appreciative of their leadership on this issue
* You are urging the House leadership to bring the bill back to a floor vote this week.

Give ’em a call. It’s time for the District to get some representation. And no, we don’t mean the morons who claim they’re your reps. Better yet, come out to the DC Voting Rights Happy Hour and drink the vote.
