OK: Justices Rule TABOR Signatures Gathered Illegally, Measure Off the Ballot

A unanimous order by Oklahoma's Supreme Court has knocked that state's proposed TABOR measure off the ballot. TABORs -- strict spending caps based on Colorado's disastrous Taxpayer's Bill of Rights -- have been advanced by the far-right in a number of states this year using a variety of shady tactics exposed by Progressive States and our allies across the country. This move is a significant victory. It indicates that the anti-government forces knowingly broke the law in Oklahoma. Other TABOR measures in other states also face court challenges. This ruling may be a sign of good things to come.
