Moore's website still claims Shaw family has enough signatures

Mayoral candidate Walter Moore has remained silent about the bizarre path of Jamiel's Law since the City Clerk judged that it failed by an enormous margin to qualify for City's March ballot. But as of last night, Moore's website unrepentantly maintained that Jamiel's Law had acquired 76,000 signatures.

In 2008, Moore also wrote Jamiel’s Law, and by December 5, 2008, over 76,000 people had signed petitions to put it on the ballot.

The City Clerk maintains the proponents of Jamiel's Law only submitted 18,000 signatures, falling over 50,000 short of the proponent's claims. Michael Higby, who has availed his blog MayorSam to the Shaw family throughout the past six months to promote Jamiel's Law, said last night that both the Shaw family and the City Clerk should answer further questions about the discrepancy.

Moore is the author of Jamiel's Law, which would revoke Special Order 40, a police order that aspires to prevent the use of racial profiling against criminal suspects.
