Intiative to end eminent domain abuse may fall short.

The Missouri Secretary of State told Missouri Citizens for Property Rights that they had failed to turn in enough signatures for one of the six required congressional districts. The signatures are needed to place amendments to the Missouri constitution on the November ballot that would end eminent domain abuse for private profit in Missouri. Ron Calzone is going to challenge the ruling since he believes enough signatures were turned in. I wonder if pressure can be brought on the Secretary of State to recount the signatures.

But what a nightmare! After all that hard work by people like Darla Maloney and the Calzones, to just miss. My wife was in charge of collecting 20,000 signatures for St. Louis City for another amendment to the Missouri constitution. This sort of situation is the one she feared most.
