BLOCKED!

KHTK 1140’s Mark Kriedler via twitter is reporting that the group led by Rob Stutzman has the necessary signatures to block the City of Anaheim from issuing $75 million in bonds that were going to pay for $25 million in renovations to the Honda center as well as $50 million to the Maloof family to help with relocation fees.

Mark Kreidler: Friend @RobStutzman confirms they’re well past the needed sigs to force public vote on bonds in Anaheim. Collecting extras now b/c of DQs.

This might not be the end all for Anaheim, as Ducks owner Henry Samueli could still loan the Maloofs the money directly, but this definitely gums up the plan in place.  While the folks in Sacramento are all dressed in purple today to support the Sacramento Kings, there are a lot of red faces in Anaheim.
