Wiener's attack on initiative rights: The Video


Click on this link to the SFGTV video of last week's rules committee meeting where Supervisor Wiener introduced his ballot proposal to water down our initiative rights. Then click on agenda item #6. What's odd about Wiener's presentation is that he doesn't provide a single concrete example of the problem his proposal is supposed to address. Instead, he simply calls it an "overdue good government measure." He also claims that he hears a lot of complaints from his constituents that there are too many measures on the city's ballot. Bullshit. Like Supervisor Kim's refusal to take the Pledge of Allegiance, Wiener's proposal only makes one wonder about his judgment.
