Amendment 47, 54 opponents decry out-of-state money in contest; accept same

Face the State has the scoop:
Protect Colorado’s Future, a union front group fighting this November's Right To Work initiative, titled Amendment 47, is hypocritically pointing the finger at "out-of-state" interests the group alleges are trying to “divide Coloradans.”

“When you have these out-of-state, or narrow corporate interests trying to divide Coloradans, it's bad for all Colorado," said Jess Knox, the group’s spokesman in an interview with Channel 7 last week.

PCF opposes Amendments 47, 49 and 54—all considered anti-union—while it supports Amendments 53 and 55.

It’s no secret that out-of-state money is flooding Colorado from both sides. In the unions’ case, the out-of state money is coming from the pockets of hard-working union workers across the country, who most likely are unknowingly funding a ballot fight in Colorado they probably don't care about.
