Brown Unveils Two New TV Ads Dispelling Whitman's Latest Lies

Brown For Governor Campaign

SACRAMENTO - Following another onslaught of lies, misinformation and deception by Meg Whitman, Attorney General Jerry Brown today unveiled two new television ads to set the record straight on his history of job creation and tax reduction as California's governor.

"Early on, Meg Whitman's army of highly paid consultants and handlers made the decision the only way they can win is to put her opponents through the wood chipper, truth be damned," said Brown Campaign Manager Steve Glazer. "We won't be pushed around."

The ads, which will run statewide, use animation to highlight the most recent in a series of distortions the Whitman campaign has made about Jerry Brown's record. The ads also present the facts - that when Brown was governor, he cut taxes by $4 billion and California created 1.9 million new jobs.

Whitman began advertising in the general election three days after the primary, with close to two-thirds of them negative ads attacking Brown.

Poizner on Whitman

Brown For Governor Campaign

"Meg Whitman may find it easy to change with the political winds, but I guess Steve Poizner doesn't," said Brown spokesman Sterling Clifford.
