Fellow Michiganders, it's time to evict a stray......

A Washtenaw County elections panel approved language this morning for a recall petition aimed at Gov. Rick Snyder.

The three-member panel voted 2-1 to approve the petition, clearing the way for the group Michigan Citizens United to begin to collect signatures. They would need the signatures of 807,000 registered voters collected within a 90-day period to force an election.

Snyder is being targeted for promoting a series of initiatives that, in the language of the petition, take authority and funds from local government and school districts, gives emergency financial managers the power to invalidate legal and binding contracts, and sought tax increases upon retirees and lower income families (and) large new tax cuts for corporations and businesses. ............(more)

3. Possible sabotage are already occuring
http://firericksnyder.org /
WARNING:

The first instances of possible sabotage are already occuring in the form of posting false petitions online. On Friday April 29th annarbor.com posted a download-able .pdf of a scanned recall petition. Please be aware that NO online petitions are valid. NO petitions will be made available for download. If you sign one of these false petitions your name can also be removed from the genuine petition. The genuine petitions will have a union stamp on them and will be printed on both the front and back sides. More details on this identifying mark later. In the mean time, NO petitions are available until it is noted on this site.

4. Even more sabotage is possible
I expect wingers with clipboards to wander around collecting signatures that will end up in the shredder. Anyone who signs one will decline to sign a real petition later, because they don't want to sign twice.

Any good defense against this sort of tampering?

I hope we can get rid of this "one tough nerd", as he proclaimed himself.
