"Focus On The Family Withdraws ‘License To Discriminate’ Amendment"

Despite succeeding in initial efforts to qualify for the ballot, Focus on the Family has withdrawn its “license to discriminate” amendment from consideration in Colorado’s constitution. According to Focus’ senior vice president Tom Minnery, there’s a “tangled thicket” of regulations related to signature collection due to unsettled litigation challenging the initiative process. Focus is concerned that it could be sued for fraud if petition signers falsify information, but Minnery says the group will attempt another ballot measure in 2014. (HT: RightWingWatch.)
