Well, the Troofers got the football yanked away from them again:
The voices of SEVENTY THOUSAND Americans who believe in democracy and believe that government exists to serve the people – and not the other way around – have been GAGGED by ONE so-called “PUBLIC SERVANT” – The New York City Clerk – who denied the petition and the voice of the people.
In the comments, there is some discussion that the problem was too few valid signatures; how many of those SEVENTY THOUSAND were named D. Duck or M. Mouse?
In a way, I'm disappointed in this outcome; it would have been much more amusing for the Troofers to get the initiative on the ballot, pass it, and then discover that they couldn't raise the $50 million budget.
