Frank Antenori a failure – Medicaid expansion opponents may not even file petitions


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

There are a number of words one can use in word association with Frank Antenori, but I'm going with "failure." Once again, Frank Antenori has failed to deliver on one of angry threats.

The Arizona Capitol Times (subscription required) reports Medicaid expansion foes short of sigs to block law:

Opponents of a new law expanding Medicaid
in Arizona say they’re still short of the signatures needed to block
the law and may not file petitions backing a referendum by Wednesday’s

A group of conservative Republicans has been circulating petitions to
temporarily block the law and put the referendum on the November 2014
ballot. Organizer Christine Bauserman said as of Monday evening they had
only about 81,000 signatures.

Supporters need 86,405 valid signatures and need a cushion to account
for invalid signatures. They’re aiming for 92,000, and Bauserman says
if they don’t get the extra signatures by Wednesday’s deadline she
likely won’t file the petitions.

Will the political media please stop fawning over Frank Antenori now? It's becoming embarrassing for you.
