The White House promises to answer petitions on the White House website once there are 100,000 signatures. Sgt Tahmooressi’s petition hit 100,000 on May 31st (we broke the news on ON THE RECORD at 7pm since it hit the 100,000 mark during our hour) but STILL NO WORD FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.
So my note to Washington Post? don’t hold your breath waiting for the Michael Brown petition to be answered any time soon. That petition stuff on the White House website is just a gimmick.
