VoteOnMarriage.org, the people behind the anti-equality constitutional amendment, has a new radio ad airing. It claims
“The People of MA have spoken, with 170,000 signatures seeking a vote on marriage”…
These people who besmirch the name “Christian” cannot stop lying blatant lies. The Secretary of State certified 123,356 signatures. VOM even admitted this in their 12/20/05 press release.
Math moment: The difference between 170,000 signatures collected and/or faked and 123,356 certified = *DELIBERATE, DOCUMENTED* FRAUD*. The fraud was so appalling that there is a call to revamp the initiative process. I personally witnessed fraudulent signature gathering at the Everett Target. Update: I concede that some of these signatures were surely rejected due to error, petition sabotage and/or tomfoolery.
By saying 170,000 represents “the People of MA hav[ing] spoken”, VOM:
1. Erroneously implies that the signers represent ALL the people of MA
2. Makes the legit signers complicit in the fraud and fakery. If I had signed that petition deliberately, I’d be hoppin mad at that slander. Don’t guilt me by association!
LISTEN! for the ad, and let us know where you hear it and who else was advertising that hour!
