I was at the big Democratic rally outside the Kodak Theater in LA, and a woman came up to me and asked me to sign a petition for more money for schools. Can’t argue with that, I thought. Signed it. She then turned the page, and said, “now, here’s one to keep marriage between a man and a woman.” I said, “No, sorry.” She went off on her way.
Later, I saw her from a distance, flipping through her clipboard and writing something down on the other petition. Hold on, I thought- IS SHE TAKING INFORMATION FROM THE ONE PETITION AND PUTTING IT ON THE OTHER? DID I JUST SIGN A PETITION TO DENY MYSELF THE RIGHT TO MARRY? I went after her, but she disappeared into the crowd. Did a little research afterwards, and it turns out these people get paid PER SIGNATURE. So I might have, and probably a few others too. Is there any way to find out who has signed these things, the way you can in Massachusetts?
