Scared of the voters?

Art Hackney is so upset about the Oil Giveaway Referendum that he’s decided to hire people to harass the volunteers gathering signatures. 

Doesn’t he realize that the signature gathering process is about putting a critical decision in the hands of Alaskan voters? If Hackney really values open and democratic debate, what better forum than a statewide referendum? In other words… what is he scared of?
