Denver Post says vote “Yes” on 49

Did I wake up in bizarro-world?

Allowing state-collected funds to be channeled to such partisan ends is offensive enough. But the ethical stench from that practice is multiplied tenfold by a loophole in the 2002 Colorado campaign finance law known as Amendment 27. That measure allows labor unions to contribute up to $4,000 to candidates to the legislature.

Awesome.

There is absolutely no need for the government to act as a collection agency for labor unions.

Someone pinch me.  THe Post?

    Not.

    Mr. Ewegen liked it.

    The Denver Chamber of Commerce also endorsed Amendment 49 … this surprised the heck out of me. I thought this Chamber was the Union bagman …

    Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    The Post got this right, but just wait until the next edition.  They won’t disappoint.

    Dean “the Unionbuster” Singleton and his whipping boy Dan Haley are at it again. We all saw this coming.
