“I stepped into a void and tried to move the issue forward. Next time we do this, it’ll be a people-powered initiative.”
— Rep. Jared Polis after facing an angry group of constituents in Boulder, Colo. The constituents were furious he cut a deal to hold off on anti-fracking ballot initiatives he had helped bankroll and which had more than 200,000 signatures to put on the November ballot, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.
