  1. Any absentee voters already voted on the ballots and sent them back to the regime to be counted ???

    The Sacramento _Bee_ report says the plaintiffs are claiming the ballot proposal is basically a fraud concocted by PG&E — and that, in fact, “Pacific Gas and Electric Corp. Chairman Peter A. Darbee essentially admitted at a March 1 stockholders’ meeting that Proposition 16 is designed to choke off competition.”
