Amendments 60-61, Prop 101 backers fight "nonsense" with baffling cartoons seen here

The folks behind Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101, the three tax-slashing ballot proposals that a wide array of opponents are fighting with a multi-million-dollar ad blitz, are pretty upset with the media. So upset that campaign coordinator Natalie Menten fired off a letter to "media members" blasting them for buying into the "utter nonsense" of the opponents, who predict losses of thousands of jobs if the measures pass. Luckily, Menten also sent along some peculiar cartoons to set the record straight.
