New claims put the actual signature count at roughly 78,000.
My phone & social media accts were noisey throughout last night. Paul Tay, a local Tulsa politician; was one early casualty of the reckless defamations, yesterday. Isaac Caviness denounced him but provided no actual evidence. I reached out to Mr. Tay yesterday afternoon and he told me he also had no real knowledge of anything substantive. Others later informed us that Tay (a candidate for Tulsa City Council) was planning a flag-burning rally. Tay is a populist perennial candidate in Tulsa. In the early morning hours Tay left me a message that he intends to take over the SQ797 movement.
Caviness offered his resignation to the remaining board of Green The Vote. Josh Luellen was one board member who refused to accept the resignation and said continuity is needed and " I believe in you, Isaac". To many of the cannabis medicine activists this is actually some good political news. This frees the state of a really bad proposed constitutional amendment. SQ797 would have instituted a constitutional tax of 20% on what many principled libertarians believe is an essential freedom.
