Inside sources have reported that Ward Connerly’s anti-affirmative action petition was being circulated yesterday on the 200 block of South Main Street.

Ward Connerly’s anti-affirmative action outfit, the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, tried to gather signatures for the 2004 ballot to place a question that would outlaw race-based affirmative action. The MCRI discontinued their effort in 2004 after a lengthy legal battle and a lack of morale.
