    CBS Denver ^ | August 30, 2016 1:29 PM
    DENVER (CBS4) – The state attorney general’s office is investigating possible fraud in connection with another ballot initiative. A measure to raise the minimum wage in Colorado to $12 an hour by the year 2020 made the ballot this year, but opponents question whether it should have. The concern comes after a new revelation about potentially forged signatures on one of the petitions. This is the second fraud investigation into a ballot initiative process so far this year, and the situation has raised serious questions about Colorado’s petition process.

    When it comes to common sense, it might be safe to say that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn missed a memo or two. Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a Change.org petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:
  • WH responds to petition to label Black Lives Matter a "terror" group

    After days of violence and heightened racial tensions in the U.S., the White House responded this week to an online petition asking the federal government to formally label the Black Lives Matter movement as a "terror group." "Terrorism is defined as 'the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims,'" read the "We The People" petition, created July 6 on the White House website. "This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations." Black Lives Matter, the petition said, "earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even...

    As you may have heard, earlier this month a petition was filed with the White House’s “We the People” platform requesting that Black Lives Matter be recognized as a terrorist organization.

    A response to your petition on Black Lives Matter Thanks for participating on the We the People platform. You recently signed a petition asking the Administration to "Formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization." In the wake of the tragic recent events in Dallas, Falcon Heights, and Baton Rouge, the President brought together law enforcement officials, civil rights leaders, activists, faith leaders, academics, and state and local elected officials this week to encourage frank conversations about the steps we can take together to build trust and ensure justice for all Americans. As part of these conversations, the...

Instead, we were informed that due to our “unprofessional” behavior, we were being let go from our internships. We were told to hand in our ID badges and to gather our things and leave the property ASAP. We were shocked. The proposal was written professionally like examples I have learned about in school, and our arguments were thought out and well-reasoned. We weren’t even given a chance to discuss it. The worst part is that just before...

    The Democratic presidential primary process may be ending next Tuesday, but the fight among Bernie Sanders supporters to rid the party of superdelegates and install new leadership at the Democratic National Committee is not. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard encouraged her followers on Saturday to sign a petition ending the Democratic Party’s use of superdelegates. “Whether you are a Bernie Sanders supporter or a Hillary Clinton supporter, we should all agree that unelected party officials and lobbyists should not have a say in who the presidential nominee of our party is,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “That should be left...

The brazen billionaire's plan to make America off limits to a specific religious group has drawn the ire and condemnation of politicians on both sides of the aisle, even as the "gaffe proof" GOP frontrunner looks likely to garner even more support from his base as large swaths of the voting public have been whipped into a xenophobic frenzy following the attacks in Paris and last week's massacre in California.

    Years ago, the Tokarski family gathered with friends around a kitchen table in an old Indiana farmhouse. They were discussing the looming construction of Interstate 69 and how they could possibly stop it. The group suspected a project of such magnitude, an interstate route stretching across the southern half of Indiana, would cause severe environmental 
damage. “We really had the project almost at a standstill until Mitch Daniels came into office,” said Thomas Tokarski, now the president of Citizens for Appropriate Rural Roads. “We still have huge amounts of support from the people in Indiana.” Since that farmhouse meeting, Tokarski...

    Academia is hell. In the latest higher-education fad, students want "trigger warnings," according to The New York Times. It appears that some students are so fragile that they want university staff to protect them from big bad ideas. Students around the country say they want "explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans." An Oberlin College draft -- now "under revision" -- for trigger warnings suggested faculty "be aware of racism,...

    An invitation to Michelle Obama to speak at the Topeka Unified School District 501 graduation ceremony by the district has some parents and students crying foul. The First Lady's appearance caused the district to combine all five schools' graduation ceremonies into one mega-ceremony, and may force limitations on the number of tickets that can be distributed to friends and families. A petition drive has been started to request that the district reconsider their plans about the combined ceremony, or have Michelle Obama speak at a separate event from the graduation.

Dice makes the satirical case that the government shutdown not only cut back on funding for national parks, but has also cut back on funding for the police state. Signature after signature, Americans willingly sign their name to a petition to implement...
