On January 21, a federal lawsuit was filed against the new Florida ban on paying initiative circulators on a per-signature basis. Florida Right to Pray Together v Lee, n.d., 4:22cv-33. The case is assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle, a Clinton appointee. Here is the Complaint. The case also challenges the new law requiring that the names and addresses of paid petitioners be printed on the initiative petition sheets, and the new law requiring paid circulators to register with the Secretary of State before they can work.
What State has the most UN-con election stuff ???
Maybe the state would be pleased to accept per-signature filing fees instead.
I am glad to read this. I hope the pro-petition circulator side wins. Pay per hour does not really work well in petition signature gathering.
