Update: A very angry commenter corrected my spelling mistake from cretons to cretins. Thank you!
Frank Chopp (D -Seattle) is the Speaker of the House in the Washington State legislature, and he is a lefty, lefty, lefty. Today we are calling on him to kill the anti-initiative bills that seem suspiciously popular with our state's Democrats... which is weird, because I learned in my public school education that Democrats are the party of the people, so why would they be trying to steal the people's voice away? Weird.
You can reach Frank Chopp at 360-786-7920 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Specifically we are asking him to kill House Bill 2614 & House Bill 2613.
On a side note, check out what the unions are saying about citizen led initiatives, and how to stop them. (Why would they do this? Because most of the unions need taxes to be raised in order to keep funding their lavish benefits - that most of the private sector goes without, but pays for anyway.)
"If you see a signature gatherer, we suggest you ask signature gatherers if they are being paid, find out their names and take their pictures (alone). 'We would like to identify as many as possible." -- Washington State Council of County and City Employees (AFSCME - AFL-CIO)
"Keep an eye out. The best way to beat this is at the signature gathering stage. Please let us know if you see those paid signature hunters in your area and let them know in no uncertain terms what their job will do to your job! Every signature we stop is one more Eyman has to pay for." -- Washington State Council of County and City Employees (AFSCME - AFL-CIO)
"If you see a signature gatherer, call us. We want to do all we can to stop them." -- Washington State Council of County and City Employees (AFSCME - AFL-CIO)
How about this, if you are gathering signatures for a petition and one of these thug-alicious cretins tries to intimidate you, immediately call the police and try to take a picture or video of the person intimidating you.
DO NOT LET THEM INTIMIDATE YOU. They are no better than the mafia, and so deserve to be dealt with accordingly - call the police and stand your ground.
