Millheim, PA – Robert Zeigler, Democratic Candidate for PA State Senate in the 34th District, opposes the actions of Senator Jake Corman and his investigations

“Why does Jake want your private information? Why does he want it to go to a third part? This investigative committee is a farce and nothing but an attempt to remain unchallenged and in power. The fact that Jake is leading the way to subpoena information from voting records such as driver license numbers, the last four digits of social security numbers, and a record of who people voted for is an incredible violation of privacy. The Majority Leader, Senator Ward, stated that this is ‘intrusive and overreaching’. I don’t understand how Jake, who claims to care about rights and privacy, can justify using taxpayer money on frivolous lawsuits are fine with releasing information to a third party,” Zeigler states.

Zeigler bases his campaign on accountability, responsibility, and transparency. He also states, “The lack of true transparency regarding as to why Jake wants to get access to and release private information of voters via the courts is extremely irresponsible. This is not what our government should be doing. Jake is someone who speaks about less government interference, but his actions are the opposite, including support for preemption, invading privacy, and continuing to abuse the court system for political gain.”

Zeigler is supportive of the legal actions against Jake and his move to issue subpoenas. The most pressing concern regarding voters’ privacy is the lack of planning from committee leadership to address how the sensitive information they want to gather will be stored, used, or who has accessibility to is beyond alarming. Make your voices heard and write to your State Senator about how you want your privacy protected and not given freely to a third-party entity.
