Calling for the Removal/Resignation of sitting U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi

Calling for the Removal/Resignation of sitting U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi

Sign the petition and share. Tell Cindy Hyde-Smith to resign and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant to demand her immediate removal/resignation, as well as the withdrawal of her candidacy for U.S. Senator for the state of Mississippi. We need government representation that protects and respects all Mississippi lives.

Why is this important?

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith's comments on November 2nd, 2018, regarding her willingness to sit “on the front row” at a “public hanging” if invited are not only deeply offensive, they provide further evidence of her blatant disregard for her oath to uphold the Constitution. Senator Hyde-Smith’s failure to stand up to the injustice of hanging deaths in the past and her approval of such violence presently, should bar her from serving as a U.S. Senator or in any government position in the state of Mississippi. She has refused to acknowledge the insensitive and deeply offensive nature of her remarks. A leader who cannot thoughtfully reflect on her actions and their potential harm is unfit to lead.

How it will be delivered

Petitions will be delivered to the offices of sitting U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.


Reasons for signing

  • She is an embarassment to the Senate and the Stae of Mississippi. Making America great should not mean returning to lynching, and racial hate. These things are neither moral not are they entertaining.
  • Stopping the bill to fund voter protection from the Russians verifies their support from a foreign nation to elect Trump.
  • Trump is a demagogue. He uses racist feelings in order to gain political power. He doesn't really care he thinks that people in the South are stupid and that he can manipulate them with his racist ideas.
