The Grand Junction Sentinel is reporting on the decision by the Mesa County Commissioners support the Independence Institute in its quest to enforce TABOR:
County commissioners, by a vote of 2 to 1, approved joining a lawsuit last week to stop the freeze. Acquafresca does not favor joining the suit, which is being spearheaded by the Libertarian Independence Institute, based in Golden.
“Frankly, this lawsuit, it doesn’t look like a great case,” he said. “The Independence Institute doesn’t care what a great case it is. Their job is just to rattle the Democrats.”
And a mighty fine job they do! If Democrats would simply follow the Constitution, there wouldn’t be a need for an Independence Institute.
