A post was shared over a hundred times on Facebook -- including by me -- alerting people to contact PA Rep. Dom Costa (D-21) and tell him to not cosponsor HB14 (Sanctuary Campuses). That bill seeks to punish any Pennsylvania institution of higher education which protects undocumented students by suspending payment of state-appropriated funds.
Costa tweeted the following shortly after midnight:
UPDATE: We should probably keep an eye open for future typos bearing Costa's name seeing as how, less than a year ago, he cosponsored a bill (HB1894) to help put an end to the "alien invasion" in Pennsylvania. You know, just in case he -- or any other elected official in a blue district -- doesn't get the message that Democrats are in no mood to let something like this slide anymore.Thank you all for your concerns but I have wrongly been listed online as a cosponsor of HB14 and have requested to be removed as a cosponsor— Dom Costa (@RepDomCosta) January 31, 2017
