Stop Charles Munger Jr. from Buying California's Election

The Courage Campaign is helping to expose Big Money interests that are behind two important ballot intiatives that California voters will face. They report that, "Millionaires, right-wing nuts, and trust-fund babies like Charles Munger Jr. are trying to buy California's election by spending millions in manipulative ads to protect their wealth and force $6 billion in further cuts to our schools and universities this January." So far Munger Jr. has kicked in $35 million dollars in an effort to defeat Prop 30 -- a proposition essential to protecting education. And these rich special interests are trying to pass Prop 32 in an attempt to crush unions.

Take a look at the Courage Campaign's video exposing Munger Jr.
