    Thank you WFST! I’ve said this process was corrupt for weeks now.

    Seems like a pretty solid complaint. I can’t fathom a legitimate defense against any of those claims.

    The Secretary of State is relying on an Attorney General’s 2006 analysis which concluded that the petitions had to have the declaration printed in order to be valid, but there’s no requirement that it be signed.

    Only a politician could have come up with that.

    The SOS is correct in relying on the AG’s analysis, but I think that just about any judge would recognize that the legislature’s intent in requiring that the declaration be included on the form was that it be signed in the space required.

    Well, it is a valid complaint and by the looks of it, quite well presented. As I said earlier, this whole thing almost equates to letting people vote and then telling them they have to be registered before the results are announced.

    I wanted to believe that the process was not rigged, but now I am wondering whether it was rigged; otherwise I am left to believe that the people running this process were so stupid and lacked common sense to the point being ridiculous.

    If you want to change a LAW you have to FOLLOW THE LAW!

    I hope this lawsuit does the trick and tips the referendum into the shredder, but we need to be prepared for the worst. Washington Families Standing Together (WAFST.org) is working hard to preserve the domestic partnership law. DONATE so they can continue! SIGN UP for a phone bank shift! WRITE a letter to the editor! ASK your employer or organization to join or endorse the WAFST coalition.

    And remember, Ref. 71 voters will be asked to accept or reject the domestic partnership law. Vote ACCEPT on Ref 71 to preserve the domestic partnership law.

    Does anyone know if Larry Stickney is a mormon?
