Los Angeles, CA. In this part two of the Full Disclosure cable and Internet TV program, Craig Holman of the Center for Governmental Studies exposed phony sample ballots sent out by California Congresswoman Maxine Waters which were prepared by a “for profit” slate card mailing operator, in an attempt to deceive voters. UCLA Law Professor Dan Lowenstein countered, saying that oppressive campaign laws were trying to discredit the mailings. He scoffed that if imitating an Official Sample Ballot is a problem, then it should be made illegal.

If you take away the deceptiveness of a slate card, you take away the effectiveness of a slate card” said Senator Dick Mountjoy (ret). Mountjoy cited the deceptive mailers targeting senior citizens in his Southern California district. He said the slate cards mailings used his image and name to falsely imply that he had endorsed the candidates. In fact the candidates had paid for the false endorsements. Click here for transcript of quote.
