when you have to lie to make your point, you don’t have a point to make:
State lawmakers are vowing to probe allegations of fraudulent tactics used by a California company to gather signatures for a ballot initiative to outlaw same-sex marriages.
The Joint Committee on Election Laws will hold an Oct. 18 hearing to investigate charges that signature-gatherers hired by National Petition Management deceived some people into signing the anti-gay marriage petition.
“Out-of-state groups have hijacked the initiative petition process by paying signature-gatherers by the signature and using blatantly deceptive tactics to mislead voters,’’ said Sen. Edward M. Augustus Jr. (D-Worcester), who has sponsored a bill banning such practices.
All this to make sure Bill and Ted can’t wed. Are we this infantile a nation?
Ok, don’t answer that. It’s too early in the morning.
