White House to Review Online Secession Petitions - ABC News: "As a practice, the White House says it will review and respond to petitions that obtain more than 25,000 signatures. Three secession petitions, from Texas, Louisiana and Florida, have passed that threshold. Texas leads all petitions, with 82,799 online signatures, which the White House confirms through email.
And the White House said it would follow this procedure now."
