Have the Anti-Petition Forces Hired Mercenaries to Work Polling Stations?

That's what an old rock-and-roll memorabilia-selling Friend of Unfair Park alleges over at his blog:

I gathered signatures yesterday at one of the early voting poll locations. You should know that the opposition has hired "blockers" -- many of whom were brought in from outside the Dallas area and/or state -- to dissuade people from signing our petitions. These are professionals who have been stationed at every polling location. They are getting paid $200/day (I found this out from "my" blocker).

Um, memo to Bible Girl: I'll be needing to take some time off this week, as I've found a better-paying gig than this one. --Robert Wilonsky
