Robin Carnahan and ballot language

Political parties are not my normal sources of information as they tend to be a bit one sided, but this is an issue that has been bothering me for a couple of years. I have seen some of the ballot summaries that have come out of the Missouri Secretary of State's office and a few have been badly biased. Whether one agrees with those issues or not, to make the process fair the summaries must be fair. Injecting politics into what should largely be a non-political office and a non-political step in the initiative process is a major problem.

  1. I've seen the side by side texts for one of these and it was an appalling abuse of power, entirely antithetical to non-partisan position she holds, and entirely contrary to supporting fair elections in Missouri.

    Do you have any idea where one might look to find side by side original and Carnahan-modified versions in these cases?
