A Sacramento Superior Court judge has thrown the governor’s redistricting plan off the ballot, according to this breaking AP report:
SACRAMENTO Ã¢â‚¬” A Superior Court judge on Thursday kicked Gov. Arnold SchwarzeneggerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s redistricting measure off the special election ballot, ruling that supporters violated CaliforniaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s constitution by using two versions of the initiative in the qualifying process.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The differences are not simply typographical errors,Ã¢â‚¬Â Judge Gail Ohanesian said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not merely about the format of the measure. They are not simply technical. Instead they go to the substantive terms of the measure.Ã¢â‚¬Â
