Sacramento Yes on 37 sent out a dramatically headlined press release claiming the FBI was looking into the No on 37 campaign.
Guess what: It’s not true. The US State’s Attorney’s Office, Eastern District, issued the following statement today: “Neither the FBI nor this office has a pending investigation related to this matter.” Read the U.S. Department of Justice Department statement here
Yes on 37 can’t win on the facts, they can’t win on the science. It looks like they’re, to be kind, stretching the truth.
Desperate times call for desperate measures it seems.
About Prop. 37
Proposition 37 would ban the sale of tens of thousands of perfectly-safe, common grocery products only in California unless they are specially repackaged, relabeled or remade with higher cost ingredients. Prop 37 is a deceptive, deeply flawed food labeling scheme that would add more government bureaucracy and taxpayer costs, create new frivolous lawsuits, and increase food costs by billions — without providing any health or safety benefits. That’s why Prop 37 is opposed by a broad coalition of family farmers, scientists, doctors, business, labor, taxpayers and consumers.
