    they can pass the buck upwards, and then we add conspiracy.

    Don't be so far above politics that you can't help clear the snakes down on the ground. (P.S.: my opinions are mine, not my employer's.)

      I am guessing here on the basis of other guesses.
      IANAL here.

      1. It has been presumed that the student signature takers were recruited from Young Repub. Clubs. Which means some of them have political ambitions or at least campaign staff ones. The kind of people who do not want a misdemeanor on their record.
      1. Is it possible that all it takes is  for one person to say I was instructed to X if the police ask or if challenged for there to be a conspiracy charge?

      Whoops, and I just suggested that we not strategize in public.

      But curiosity and hope that rule of law at the state level has led me into temptation.

      The blog made me do it defense.

      I guess I need some perfecting.

      is virtually identical to my experience in Rancho Santa Margarita... right down to the order of the petitions, the non-mentioning of the other ballot proposals... "little John" is out front of the Target store tonight trying to get himself a few more signatures... I spent an hour harrassing him, so my "cover" is blown... but I'm sure somebody can get him to repeat his mistakes and catch it on video...

      oh! that would be sweet! and I'm sure he'd flip like a pancake to save himself.
