    Dishonest and unbecoming of community leaders who know Sen Newman is being used by Republican interests to break the state senate Democratic supermajority. Paid petitioners are out telling voters the recall is a gas tax repeal. $1 per signature may be worth it to those folks, but what about informed individuals who choose to engage in false and misleading recall of the very person who is fighting to stop re-appropriation of our tax dollars. This recall is estimated to cost us all millions and will NOT repeal the gas tax.
