It is what supporters of Proposition 30, Gov. Brown’s education funding initiative, suspected and feared would happen. In a new 30-second TV ad that circulated today, the rival campaign of Proposition 38 takes pot shots at Prop 30.
Prop 38 funder Molly Munger promised Sunday that the campaign would be “compare and contrast” ads to tell the truth about false statements in Prop 30’s TV ads. With its new ad, Prop 38 has now contributed misleading claims of its own, signaling a potentially costly escalation of a battle for voters’ attention that would probably best be waged promoting a common cause – raising more money for schools – instead of sniping over differences.
