11/5/05 - Black Politicians Say Mailer Distorts Support

"It's almost as if there was a deliberate attempt to confuse voters," said Assemblyman Mark Ridley-Thomas, a Los Angeles Democrat who was featured in the mailer but opposes Proposition 78. "They are being very, very naughty. And they deserve to be spanked by voters."

Proposition 79 is endorsed by major health, senior and consumer advocates. Not the drug industry. And not trial lawyers.
