Yes is No and No is Yes

… or at least that’s what Democrats in the Oregon state legislature tried to say. This is six months old (HT: The Agitator), but it’s too good not to post.

Consider the wording in the bill:

“A measure referred to the people by referendum petition may not be adopted unless it receives an affirmative majority of the total votes cast on the measure rejecting the measure. For purposes of this subsection, a measure is considered adopted if it is rejected by the people.”

Did you read it carefully? Yep. No is yes and yes is no. Well, they got caught, so they didn’t actually do it, or so I understand.
