Paul Jacob updates the case against the "Oklahoma 3"
Paul Jacob, citizen leader and Senior Advisor with the Sam Adams Foundation, discusses what's happened since his criminal indictment in October 2007. OK Attorney General Drew Edmondson accuses Paul and two others of breaking a state law regarding petition signature gathering, but Paul and the others followed the law as it had been interpreted previously by the OK Supreme Court. Now Edmondson wants to imprison the OK 3 for up to 10 years. For more information, visit http://www.freepauljacob.com and http://www.samadamsalliance.org

A mash-up video, about the Oklahoma AG's attack on "The Oklahoma 3".
The Oklahoma 3, does not deserve to be the target of political retaliation from politicians who want to limit the political choices available to all Oklahomans.
This is an issue that transcends the political spectrum. Every one of us has a dog in this race." All of us may, in good time and for pressing issues, decide in the future to exercise our right to petition for redress of grievance via the initiative petition process. Any limitation on that right is therefore a direct attack on all of us.
