Eyman loses another

Posted by David Postman at 3:27 PM

King County Superior Court Judge Mary Roberts has struck down Tim Eyman's 2001 property tax initiative because the ballot title was misleading. AP has the story:

"The voters were incorrectly led to believe they were voting to amend I-722," Roberts said. "The voters were misled as to the nature and content of the law to be amended, and the effect of the amendment upon it. The (state) constitution forbids this."
