Bad news for Jerry Brown. Molly Munger is about to go negative on his tax hike ballot measure.

The millionaire civil rights attorney, who has spent an estimated $28 million of her personal fortune on her own school funding measure (Prop 38), announced on NBC4’s “News Conference” program that she plans on running “compare and contrast” television commercials that will depict her tax hike measure as the one that will help K-12 education, and not the governor’s Proposition 30.
