Brown Accuses Prop. 30 Foes of Illegal Money Laundering
On Saturday, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) accused the Small Business Action Committee PAC -- which opposes Proposition 30, the November ballot tax hike measure he developed with supporters of the "Millionaires Tax" -- of illegal money laundering. Brown's remarks came after an Arizona-based group contributed $11 million to the SBAC PAC to help defeat the measure. An SBAC PAC spokesperson said Brown's comments do not have merit, calling them a "politically motivated attack."
