Americans for Job Security, a conservative, pro-business national group, is the true source of the $11 million last-minute infusion of campaign cash into a California political committee that supports an antiunion ballot measure and opposes Gov. Jerry Brown's tax proposition, state campaign finance regulators announced early Monday.
But the hard-fought disclosure, which comes just one day before the election, creates more questions than it answers, because under federal law, Americans for Job Security does not have to reveal its donors.

It's too hard to stifle political dissent if you don't know who they are.

As tomorrow is election day, it is a little late for their smear job.

Oh my! a conservative, pro-business group against stifling tax increase & an end to union paycheck deduction scheme!!
Sorry Brown, your Prop 30 going down in flames..little less confident about Prop 32 but there’s hope! Even few of my lib, union relatives are voting YES on Prop 32.

I suspect California just might be in play for the presidential election as well...

by null and void
(Day 1385 of the Obama hostage crisis - Barack Hussein Obama an enemy BOTH foreign AND domestic)
Who cares? As long as Prop 30 burns in hell.
Thanks for the funding to defeat this assinine measure.

The Rats running KCRA.COM have worked themselves up in a dither over this. I think it is past time to pull some broadcast licenses.

The nitwits at KFBK-AM as well. Wouldn’t surprise me to learn that 50% of their ad revenues come from labor unions.

Same here in the Frisco area. The TV stations were in a lather last night. I do not listen to the local news but I do like to hear the weather report (not politicized-YET) so I have the TV on but muted. They were running pictures of those wascally Koch Brothers and also a big anti-32 poster.
I am going out to vote soon. Remember there are very important state assembly and senate seats in play if you live in the right district. Even if you don't you can vote on the Propositions. A simple rule--YES on 32 and 33, NO on everything else.
