Maryland ACLU Questions Petitions Seeking Overturn Of DREAM Act In State

The state chapter of the ACLU is questioning the legality of online petitions opponents are using to get the law before voters via a referendum next year.

The group says the website MDPetitions.com enables a user who knows someone's name, zip code and birthdate to submit a signature on that person's behalf without their knowledge. The elections board says it is consulting with Attorney General Doug Gansler's office. The board has already validated more than 41,000 of the 56,000 signatures opponents of the new law must submit by June 30 to get it on the ballot next year.

If opponents reach this month's deadline, the implementation of the law will also be delayed, which is another of their goals.
