Among Sacramento wonks the conventional wisdom long held that attorney Molly Munger’s Proposition 38 could kill Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30.
Both call for new taxes. Both are to benefit schools. Both are complicated.
That, goes the theory, will generate enough doubt and confusion to lead voters to reject both.
The latest polls reinforce earlier findings that Proposition 30 is a cliffhanger and that Proposition 38 will lose, despite the nearly $28 million that the deep-pocketed Munger, a longtime civil rights activist, has pumped into it. That’s not surprising. Munger proposes to tax you and me.
