edits to Proposition 6

I saw your edits to Proposition 6 and think that it was important to not remove the primary argument by opponents, which, from their website is related to budgetary concerns.

I also believe that the fact that Nicholas, the funder solely responsible for this initiative being on the ballot was indicted is a central one and should be placed prominently. If you research this initiative's history, you will find that it had not raised sufficient funds to gather signatures and was not going to make the ballot. It only made the ballot because of Nicholas' last minute decision to donate $1 million. Thus, his role in placing the initiative on the ballot and his indictment is one that voters should be aware of. I put this back in the article with clear references.
