Gas Tax Advocates Lack Confidence in Convictions

Advocates of Proposition 87, a November ballot measure which would impose a huge new tax on oil produced in California, obviously don't believe that their plan has much chance of succeeding.

They are so insecure that they bought up several "No on 87" web addresses so that when citizens searching for that phrase click on a "No" website, they are then redirected to a "Yes on 87" site. The cyber shenanigans have led to legal action.

A real "No on 87" site is here.

So much for good old-fashioned campaign work; the "Yes" campaign obviously feels they can win only by engaging in deception and trickery. Hopefully this bodes well for Proposition 87's defeat at the polls.
