Eyman Pushes Deadline for Anti-Gay Rights Measure

Posted by David Postman at 3:49 PM

UPDATE: Tim Eyman just announced that the signature-gathering effort fell short. There will be no public vote on whether to repeal the gay rights bill.

Tim Eyman was supposed to turn in his petitions for Referendum 65 today at 4 p.m. But he's been calling reporters in the past few minutes to say the petitions won't arrive until close to 5 p.m. And 5 p.m. is the deadline. He's cutting it close. His partner Mike Fagan just flew into Sea-Tac with more petitions.

Wondering what happens if, say, bad traffic keeps them from meeting the deadline? It has happened before.
