I don't think it was "fraudulent".  I think the Commission was 
directly involved with the organization and planning of the rally, 
and somehow they got the idea that they couldn't be involved 
(possibly that a couple of us on oregon-l said as much) and they 
decided to cancel the whole thing in a panic before lawmakers started 
asking the same questions.

That said, we rallied anyway.  It was a smaller group, and honestly 
the legislators weren't listening no matter how large the group was.

At this point I'm of the opinion that we should continue to do all 
that we can, and make sure to save quotes from the guilty for use 
when they run for re-election.

Rep. Sara Gelser and Sen. Margret Carter are not on my happy list.
