Schwarzenegger targets gerrymandering for termination, pushes for Clean Missouri support

  

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The man known for his iconic portrayal of the Terminator is now looking to “terminate gerrymandering.”

In a series of tweets posted on Thursday, former California Governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a video and link to a Crowdpac.com fundraiser, with the goal of fighting for redistricting campaigns in four states:

  • Michigan – Voters Not Politicians
  • Missouri – Clean Missouri
  • Colorado – Fair Maps Colorado
  • Utah – Better Boundaries

In a letter published on the Crowdpac webpage, the actor says he is on a crusade to raise money for four different state initiatives “to take the power from the politicians and give it back to the people.”

“I’m going to fly one lucky supporter to Budapest to hang out with me on the set of Terminator so you can literally terminate gerrymandering with me, as the Terminator.
Chip into our campaign now,” he writes. “Do it because you want to protect our democracy and terminate the 200-year-old scam state-by-state. Do it to let the politicians know who is in charge. Or just do it to come have a fantastic time with me.”
