It’s hard to believe, but another initiative from initiative
peddler slut, Tim Eyman, has been struck down by the state Supreme Court:
Local voters can’t ban red-light cameras by initiative, the state Supreme Court said Thursday in a ruling that dampens efforts around the state to banish the cameras.
The court ruled that the Legislature gave “exclusive power” to local city and county councils to decide whether to use the cameras.
This brings up the question, why is Tim Eyman dabbling in pedestrian, local issues like red light cameras?
The battle against the intersection cameras is organized and cheered by Tim Eyman, who over the past decade has made a career of pushing anti-tax initiative campaigns. Red-light cameras are a new cause for him, and one he believes has widespread appeal beyond party affiliation.
“Appeal beyond party affiliation”? Huh…it sounds to me like money is drying up for Eyman—his wealthy right-wing Johns have grown weary of dumping boat-loads of money into his efforts only to experience failure at the ballot or have his initiatives overturned by the courts.
Eyman is forced to take it to the streets and sell himself on the local street corners. You know…in the red light districts.
