The parasites came out of the woodwork today. Defend Michigan, a conglomerate of organizations of which you would be hard pressed to find many without their hand in taxpayer pockets, have filed challenges to the over 501,000 signatures submitted to the Secretary of States Office by SOS Michigan. They have hired Elections Attorney John Pirish to argue that there are problems with the language and the signatures. Defend Michigan's Spokesman Rodger Martin says they are "quite shocking".
A little less drama and more accuracy would be more to our liking. We are always suspect of someone opposed to something who is shocked by it's existence. What they are deadly afraid of is giving you the opportunity to vote. Heaven forbid that they and elected officials should be held accountable for the money they receive from the taxpayers or that elected officials should have to ask for money if they require more than allotted.
SOS Spokesperson Scott Tillman has it right when he says they don't want the people to vote or to put the people in charge. SOS does not cut the budget it simply limits future increases to the rate of inflation and population growth.
