Court battle over Colorado tax initiative

Proponents of three anti-tax measures on the November ballot are telling a judge they can't identify the source of the initiatives.

Five proponents who are accused of failing to report campaign donations said Monday they got the ballot language and instructions from a mysterious "Mr. X," who sent them unsigned e-mails.

One of the proponents, Michelle Northrup, told the judge she believes "Mr. X" is anti-tax crusader Douglas Bruce, because she panicked and he called her and told her he was sending further instructions.

The proposals would limit the ability of local and state governments to borrow and spend money.

Opponents say that would cripple state and local governments.
