Don't you just love how their so smug, just already knowing that the sheeple will pass it!
I was in one congregation that voted down a money grab once, back in the 70's. They took the vote two more times, failed rack time! They even had a different eldub talk for twenty minutes before the last vote!
The next Thursday, we had a thirty minute part about following theocratic order. After that flogging, it passed by one vote, with several, not voting at all!
