For weeks Gene Pierce, Carlo Loparo and the rest of the anti-Strickland, 40-watt club members over at have been promising to deliver at least 350K signatures to get their anti-slots-at-racetracks plan on the ballot.

Their stated goal of 350K is already far fewer signatures than they will actually need once the signatures are validated (normally around 50% actually pass the validation process). And it turns out they could even hit that.

Even with the help of Craig’s List and Arno Political consultants, they only delivered 325K signatures.

Sorry, boys. It’s not looking so good for your evil revenge plan now.
