The group whose initiative petitions on eminent domain and on restricting the growth of government spending have been rejected by the Secretary of State’s office could file a legal challenge in the next few days. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan ruled, last week, that the signatures would not even be considered because Missourian in Charge – the organizing group – did not file the signature pages by county and did not number the pages sequentially, which is required. So, the petitions were rejected. Missourians in Charge President Patrick Touhey says the legal strategy is being planned. Touhey says Carnahan is rejecting the signatures for what he calls a “clerical error” and a “bureaucratic technicality.” He says a legal challenge will be filed either late this week or early next week. The group has until Monday to file its challenge.
