Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Group Looking To Change Redistricting Comes Up Short
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says supporters of a constitutional amendment to change the way Ohio draws its legislative districts have fallen short of the number of valid signatures needed to get the issue on November’s ballot. Husted says the group Voters First Ohio has fallen about 131,000 signatures short.
The secretary of state also says the group failed to get the required number of signatures from 44 counties. Husted says the group met the legal requirement for only 34 counties.
The group has ten additional days to collect the signatures to make up the difference.
The group is looking to change the Ohio constitution to take the power to draw legislative districts away from state lawmakers. The amendment would create a 12-member citizens commission to draw legislative lines.
