Via The Roundup,Ted Costa, millionaire ballot measure pusher, says he's starting to doubt his redistricting reform initiative will qualify in time for a fall special election.
Apparently, there's been an abnormal amount of invalid signatures on the petitions gathered so far - a lot of dublicates that he attributes to confusion over the plethora of proposals out there.
As the Roundup guys snarked - we're also sure it has nothing to do with the rabid, $2 a person signature gatherers out there.
We love redistricting reform - but we hate Ted Costa. And this proposal still misses the point when it contains language that would force a mid-decade redistricting (one based on six year old, very inaccurate census data).
Help this initiative go down: if you see signature gatherers hunting for this proposal, don't sign. And tell your friends not to sign either. It's flawed. It can be revised and still make the ballot. It's a really, really bad way to allow policy-by-threat.
