Interview with David J. Vann
QUESTION 7
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT IF WE CAN KIND OF MOVE FORWARD JUST A LITTLE BIT NOW. WE'VE GOT THE UH, THE PETITION OUT HERE, SO I THINK WHAT WE NEED TO DO, BECAUSE… [overlap] YOU'RE GIVING ME ALMOST MORE DETAIL THAN I CAN REALLY WORK INTO THE STORY.

David J. Vann:

Okay, but again, Sid Smeyer was a very significant figure. In that, he took my idea as a young lawyer, we put it into a petition, we made the petition with snap-out carbons that we had a whole campaign organized the minute we got the petition. And, we got 12,000 names almost in a single day and, had virtually a political revolution on our hands.
