AZ Republic calls No on 107 campaign out for inaccurate accusation about getting 107 on the ballot
nicely dissected a falsehood the No on 107 campaign is spreading, that legislators wrongly used their positions to put the initiative on the ballot. Well duh, that's how most Arizona initiatives get on the ballot, through the legislature referring them! There is nothing unethical, nor wrong, about Senator Russell Pearce and State Representative Steve Montenegro referring 107 to the ballot. The other way to get an initiative on the ballot is to collect 230,000 signatures. The No on 107 campaign is trying to imply that it was unethical to use the legislative route instead of collecting signatures. Seriously.
