Sacramento Group Vows To Fight On After Hansen Revelation
Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork's (STOP) leaders have "vowed to come back fighting" in the wake of it being revealed that Chris Hansen is the "secret source of money" for a campaign against a new NBA Kings arena in Sacramento. STOP "insists it is a homegrown effort, aimed at giving voters a voice." Group officials said that they are "revamping their effort." STOP "believes it has well over half of the 22,000 signatures necessary" to place the arena issue on the June ballot. It has until December to complete its drive (SACRAMENTO BEE, 8/20).
