Pro-affirmative action group to sue Secretary of State

A group that launched a failed attempt to protect affirmative action programs in Colorado will sue Secretary of State Mike Coffman today for throwing away up to 5,300 valid signatures that would have bolstered the initiative’s chances to make it onto the ballot.

The measure, called Initiative 82, sought to preserve affirmative action programs in the face of Amendment 46, a controversial ballot proposal which, if passed, will destroy them.

Colorado University law professor Melissa Hart, who is also spearheading the Vote No on Amendment 46 campaign, claims that the Secretary of State’s Office tossed out signatures that belonged to registered active voters, including the signature of Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey’s son, according to 9News.

  1. MLK struggled for equal opportunity and the right to be judged by one’s character and abilities, not the color of one’s skin.

    Affirmative action is the antithesis of everything MLK struggled for.
