CBS Denver is out with another report covering the environmentalists’ efforts of placing two anti-fracking initiatives on the November ballot. According to their analysis, it appears that the enviros will fall short:
Former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler said it would be unheard-of if the enviros are successful in getting the anti-fracking initiatives on the ballot:
“For them to be able to do that would require a level of sophistication — a level of up front work to make sure their signatures were absolutely correct to begin with — that has never occurred in Colorado for a ballot initiative,” Gessler said.
It is beginning to look like their push was just a publicity stunt. From the delivering of empty petition boxes to the unrealistic goal of banning energy development in 90 percent of the state, no wonder there is a growing bipartisan opposition to the measures.
