Rubashkin Petition Over 40,000 and in Second Place as Deadline Looms


rubashkin[Link below.] As first publicized here on, there  is a petition to President Barack Obama asking him to investigate the Rubashkin case, following the recent brazen denial of appeal by the 8th Circuit Court.

Although the petition reached the requisite signatures within hours and has now exceeded 40,000 signatures, and even though it is currently the second highest signed petition in the nation, more signatures are needed to show the White House that this is something that people are taking very seriously. The petition will close this coming Shabbos, on October 22.

As first reported here on Matzav.comthe White House changed its policy for the “We the People” petitions, requiring 25,000 signatures to garner an official response from the White House policy team, up from the 5,000 signatures required initially when the site was unveiled at the end of September. The Rubashkin petition, which commenced prior to this change, was not subject to this new minimum level, although, as mentioned, it has far surpassed that plateau.

Take a moment to sign the petition and pass it along. Click here.

  1. I think that everyone should sign but considering that of the top ten petitions five of them have to do with legalization of Marijuana and other drugs I doubt this list will be given any real credence
