Tell San Francisco city leaders: Investigate deceptive Prop D campaign

    1. Sponsored by

      San Franciscans United for Pension and Health Reform

Tea Party billionaires are spending millions to battle unions all over the country.

The same billionaires who funded anti-union campaigns in Wisconsin and Ohio have taken their fight to San Francisco, bankrolling Jeff Adachi’s “pension reform” measure, Prop D. 

Now, a powerful new video shows that San Francisco voters were lied to by Prop D operatives who were caught on tape lying about what the measure would do. 

Take action now: tell San Francisco Ethics Commission Executive Director John St. Croix to investigate Jeff Adachi’s deceptive Prop D campaign for lying to the voters of San Francisco.

    2. Are Adachi + Tea Party-backed Gov. Walker clones? Watch. Decide

      In a new video, "Parrot" footage of San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi reveals that Adachi and Tea Party-backed Governor Scott Walker are using strikingly similar rhetoric.

      "Parrot" was launched after Adachi's Walker ties were revealed by the San Francisco Chronicle.

    3. SF Examiner on Prop D Tea Party Ties

      The San Francisco Examiner has a story up about a new ad Yes on C, No on D just launched --

      Yes on C, No on D spokesman Nathan Ballard said that “whether he knows it or not, Jeff Adachi is being used” by these “anti-labor billionaires” and he is a “tool” of a “concerted effort” to “crush labor unions.”

      Ballard said that venture capitalist Michael Moritz is one of the largest contributors to Adachi’s pension measure and has also contributed to Republicans in Ohio and Wisconsin who led anti-union efforts.

    4. SF Chronicle reports on Change.org campaign momentum

      The Chronicle just posted an article about our Change.org campaign asking the Ethics Commission to investigate how the deceptive Prop. D got on the ballot.

      "At issue is the hidden camera investigation by the Prop. C team conducted over the summer that showed signature gatherers working to qualify Prop. D for the ballot saying the measure would prevent nighttime parking meter charges or ensure city workers had better retirement benefits. Actually, it would make changes to the city’s skyrocketing pension system, mostly through requiring city employees to pay more of their salaries into a pension fund."
