Rimsza would have realized this if he'd conducted a minimum of research (in the Republic's case, it would be called "reporting"). Instead of announcing his intentions to ban paid petition gathering, he should have denounced the practice, and announced plans for a public information campaign to get voters not to sign petitions circulated by non-volunteers. Paid petition circulators in Arizona are required to tell you they're being paid if you ask. Also, they're easy to identify because they usually have several petitions and don't know diddly about the referendums and initiatives they're asking you to help put on the ballot.
