Monday, April 7th, 2014 at 5:19 pm in ballot measures.
Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper has put another $1.2 million into his “Six Californias” proposed ballot measure to split the Golden State half a dozen ways, an idea so far out there that some have wondered whether it’s a publicity stunt, a subtle satire on the initiative process, or a mid-life crisis.
Draper had put an initial $750,000 into his effort early last month, so his running total so far is $1.95 million; no other donor has given the campaign significant money. Draper has until July 18 to submit signatures from at least 807,615 registered voters in order to qualify the measure for November’s ballot.
