David Paul Brown for Prop 89

David Paul Brown, writing in the Paradise Post, gives a shout out to Proposition 89:

Three groups (among many) that I mostly agree with are supporting 89.

They're Common Cause, Public Campaign and The League of Women Voters.

Let's allow a candidate's ideas to garner our votes, immaterial of their wallet's largess.

They've done it in Maine and Arizona with good results and satisfied voters. The "fat cats" may not like it but isn't that the point? Yes on 89.

Of course the "fat cats" don't like Proposition 89, they are doing quite well in the current system (cough, Fabian Nunez, cough). It is precisely because clean elections return power to the people that special interests are opposed.
