Group Seeks Amazon Boycott Over Sales Tax Fight

A coalition of nonprofit groups is calling on people to boycott Amazon and cancel their accounts until the online retailer gives in to California and starts collecting sales tax. Bwahahahahahahahahah! Like that's going to happen!

The nonprofits along with several state lawmakers Monday called on Amazon to "stop cheating California" by trying to repeal the law through a ballot referendum. Amazon's opponents announced a Web campaign intended to organize opposition efforts and explain how customers can close their accounts.
