This article conveniently omits another slate mailer that was sent to all registered Republicans last week titled "Voting Guide for Republicans" urging a No on Proposition 23. While this looked official, it was another scam by the job killers who think we are all going to miraculously find green jobs. Of course, since The Reporter officially endorsed No on 23, perhaps this wasn't a convenient omission at all.

It turns out that Solano County is one of 9 California Counties who also used incorrect ballot language on Proposition 23, originally written by none other than Jerry Brown's office and ordered by a court to change this language, saying it was "false, misleading and prejudicial."

Of course Solano County is up there with the crooks. They will claim reduction in staff overworked and under paid employees. ROLMAO

The crafty and misleading mailers and TV ads are for the those that do not know and do not understand what is going on in their state and country. Or, in other words the lazy and dumb voters. The only useful information is who is supporting these ballot measures and candidates. This can also be misleading as with the Prop 23 ads.
