Yet Another Glorious Failure for the Troofers
And you won't hear about it anywhere else other than here and at JREF. Remember the thrilling NYC-CAN effort last year, that turned out to be NYC-CANT? Well, they decided to duplicate their failure in New Hampshire, where apparently it only takes a handful of signatures to get a measure voted on, and a voice vote at that will get it on the ballot. How'd they do?
A petition article on several town warrants instructs the state’s congressional delegation to pursue a “new and independent investigation” into the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Here’s how it fared in local towns:
u Chesterfield: Failed
u Harrisville: Failed
u Marlborough: Failed
u Nelson: Passed over
u Richmond: Passed
u Swanzey: Failed
One out of six!
Meanwhile, NYC-CANT is still urging funds for their NYC efforts:
Starting on Monday, March 15, 2010, NYC CAN will ask thousands of concerned citizens in New York and across the country to begin calling and faxing three city council members each day. All 51 council members will be contacted over the course of 17 business days.
Each morning, NYC CAN will send out an action alert with the contact info for three city council members’ offices. In our action alerts we will include a set of suggested talking points to use when you call or fax the council members.
Boris, send them some money! I can assure you it will not be used for Luke's tuition.
