The Oklahoma law that requires petition gatherers for ballot initiatives to be state residents is being challenged in court. I hope that it is struck down.
But in the meantime, those campaigns are given pretty clearcut rules to follow. The residency requirement isn’t the half of the problems they face, as the Ballot Access effort now underway makes clear.
TABOR was and is lousy legislation; there are already term limits on all elected officials: elections. But the irony is that because of a lot of obfuscation on this issue, term limits is very popular in conservative areas, and if the TABOR folks had followed the law, they probably could have got the damn thing through.
