The Continuing Saga of the NYC Ballot Initiative

It's moved to a new site, apparently to hide the direct connection with Les Jamieson. They're still stuck on 31,000 signatures, which is where they were last August when they gave up hitting the 2008 ballot. They've still got the idiotic $10 million per year budget which they claim will come from private sources, which of course means that the hilarity will continue even if they were to somehow get the measure on the ballot and get it passed. I got a hunch that Ed Asner isn't parting with any of his own funds.
