Dirty Trick???

Crooks and Liars says It is not every day that something from a blog post ends up in the CBS Evening News, but then again using children with cancer to try and steal the White House is pretty egregious. A diarist at Daily Kos noticed that the dirty tricksters, who are advancing an initiative that would switch 20 of California’s electoral college votes to the Republicans were using children’s cancer as a bait-and-switch to get people to sign the initiative and place it on the ballot.

It sounds to me that the signature gathers are just trying to get several petitions signed at the same time. Why is that a dirty trick? And if 20/55's of the state really support the Republicans, why is it not a dirty trick for the Dems to get their electorial votes? And all that would happen, if the Republicans get enough signatures, is that the subject would then be put on the ballot. The Dems must be pretty worried that the voters would pass it. Maybe the name of the blog, Crooks and Liars, says it all.
