The “Citizen’s” Redistricting Commission, which rendered redistricting lines that assure one party super-majority control of the California Legislature for the next decade, (didn’t Mao Tse Tung also do that in China?) filed a petition (paid for by us taxpayers) with Attorney General Kamala Harris today arguing small points about wording of documents related to the approved referendum and signature circulation to quality it. In the petition, the “Citizen’s” Commission calls on the Democratic Attorney General from San Francisco to interfere with the signature gathering time frames and stop current collection efforts until the highly technical wording issues are resolved, thus putting the rest of us at a huge disadvantage and cutting against Proposition 11’s intent to give a referendum challenge a half-way decent chance of qualifying before the June election.

It seems we are going to become a one-party state no matter what.

I think you need to read the several letters posted on the commissions web site. The commission thinks the title and summery of the redistricting referendum are misleading and will result in failure of the referendum if sufficient signatures are gathered. Apparently the Attorney General disagrees with the commission and is allowing the referendum to go forward. We shall see which lawyer is correct once the signatures are gathered and the referendum goes forward – if it does.
