New filing for referendum on Arizona immigration law

A new referendum drive is under way to put Arizona’s new immigration law on hold pending a public vote in November.

The drive was launched by a Tempe man, Larry Gist (“jist”), who is running unopposed for the Green Party nomination for governor.

But Gist did not immediately return calls for comment on the paperwork filed late Monday, and a Green Party spokesman said Tuesday that party officials don’t know Gist and have no involvement in the referendum drive.

To qualify for the ballot, the referendum campaign needs to file nearly 77,000 signatures by July 28.

Two other ballot campaigns, one for an initiative and another for a referendum, already are under way. It’s not clear if either will collect enough signatures.
