Oklahoma medical marijuana petition. Are the Signatures in Danger? Incompetency issues? Seriously!
Observers for signature counting were interviewed w/basic questions. But Sapp responses demonstrated that she lacked basic knowledge of what would disqualify signatures in the count by secretary of state. She even had difficulty in catching several hints that would had prompted her to change her inaccurate responses. When she mentioned that the secretary of state in addition to counting all signatures would also look at each signature to make sure they are registered voters, that was when it became obvious that Sapp was clueless as to what to observe in a signature count. Sapp did not know that all signatures are presumed valid until challenged.
SOS representative on opposite side of the noisy crowded office, interrupted the interview to correct Sapp in that the SOS does not verify signatures, nor does it do voter registration verification; but that SOS just does a physical count. After SOS representative realized that the person who would be observing them demonstrated a lack of basic knowledge to detect any error in the signature count, she explained the rights for protestors against sufficient signature numbers counted by SOS; but omitted any mention of the rights of protesters (marijuana supporters) against INSUFFICIENT signature numbers counted by SOS.
