Prop. 38’s Molly Munger. Proposition 38 campaign pushes taxes, blasts Sacramento.The Proposition 38 campaign released its first statewide television advertisement Monday, aiming to gain ground in the polls by playing to voters’ distrust of Sacramento politicians.

The 30-second spot could also ratchet up the tension as Gov. Jerry Brown pushes his own tax initiative, Proposition 30. Although the advertisement doesn’t mention Brown or his campaign, it obliquely refers to politicians who “say unless we send more tax dollars to Sacramento, they’ll cut education again.”
