    Is Mooney really that proud of getting 3 questions on the ballot, considering they all failed and it is ridiculously easy to get a law referred in Maryland.

    SEC. 3. (a) The referendum petition against an Act or part of an Act passed by the General Assembly, shall be sufficient if signed by three percent of the qualified voters of the State of Maryland, calculated upon the whole number of votes cast for Governor at the last preceding Gubernatorial election, of whom not more than half are residents of Baltimore City, or of any one County.
    In 2012, that was about 54K signatures. Out of a state with 5.8 million residents. It's not exactly hard.
