Bid to put 9/11 probe on ballot lacks sufficient signatures

By Amber Jamieson and Yoav Gonen New York Post

New York City has plenty of conspiracy theorists, but apparently not enough of them are registered voters.

A group pushing to get a city investigation into the collapse of 7 World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, suffered a setback Tuesday when the City Clerk’s Office refused to accept 37,688 of the group’s 65,000 referendum petition signatures.

That left the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now short of the minimum 30,000 signatures needed to put the issue on the November ballot.

Many of those backing the referendum are 9/11 conspiracy theorists.

“Instead of wasting New Yorkers’ time and hard- earned taxpayer dollars humoring conspiracy theorists with wild fantasies, the City Council will continue to focus on passing sound legislation,” said City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
