'Green the Vote' Accused of ' White Lies'

petition_0.jpg

The chief signature-counter for ‘Green the Vote’ says the organization is giving misleading information. Dody Sullivan says signature numbers were inflated to keep supporters excited about an Oklahoma vote to legalize recreational marijuana.

She says leaders in the organization told her to inflate the numbers. Sullivan says they are far short of the needed number. Organizers will need over 130,000 certified signatures to call a vote. Sullivan says the number collected is closer to 78,000.

The petitions must be turned in by tomorrow. Sullivan says she has resigned in protest from the 'Green the Vote' board.
