Today, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals released its opinion on why it acted last week to allow release of the names of those who signed petitions for Referendum 71. Thanks to the Secretary of State’s office for the heads up.
Here’s the decision.
Meanwhile, I want to add info to my earlier blog post about the Family PAC.
Turns out this group is an another appendage of the Lynnwood-based Family Policy Institute of Washington.
That group dumped $200,000 into the Vote Reject on R-71 committee. This latest move makes you wonder why their deep-pocket donors didn’t step up sooner.
There may still be other ways to funnel it in. Focus on the Family, the Colorado-based group led by the Rev. James Dobson, is doing its own independent spending in this contest. They’re up over $100,000 with mailers and radio ads.
