Oakland:  In a recent review of campaign ads, the Sacramento Bee has determined that radio ads produced by the “No on 37” campaign are misleading.

Specifically, the Bee singled out four claims repeatedly being made by the $35 million “No on 37” campaign that have been proven false.

False Claim 1:  “Prop. 37 bans thousands of common food products.”
Sacbee Fact Check:  “Those foods could still be sold.”

False Claim 2:  “Prop. 37 would cost Californians millions more in bureaucracy.”
Sacbee Fact Check:  “…exaggerates estimates from the non-partisan Legislative Analysts Office.”

False Claim 3:  “(Prop. 37 would) increase food costs by hundreds of dollars per year.
Sacbee Fact Check:  “That was the conclusion of a study paid for by the No on 37 campaign…No independent studies have confirmed those estimates.”

False Claim 4:  Prop. 37 was “written by trial lawyers for trial lawyers.”
SacBee Fact Check:  “There is no evidence the measure was inspired or funded by the Trial Lawyer Lobby.”

Celebrities For the Win: Yes on 37!

Kudos to conscientious celebrities rushing forward to support our right to know what's in our food. They are using their star power to show support for Proposition 37 with words, videos and social media messages.  Celebrities For The Win!

photo-gwyneth-paltrow-588x441.jpgGwyneth Paltrow: "Voting YES on California's Proposition 37 will require all genetically modified foods to be labeled, something that's currently not done in the US but is done in more than 50 other countries. This means you'll have a choice between buying an ear of corn that's been genetically modified and one that's not. It's just a label! And it's just freedom of information, after all."

The LA band Maroon 5, longtime proponents of Prop 37, tweeted this note of support.

@Maroon5: "On Election Day we’ll support the right to know with a  vote to ."

Singing legend Barbra Streisand expressed her belief of our right to know in this tweet.

@BarbraStreisand: "Everyone has right to know what they’re eating! Join  in labeling GMO foods. Please RT. Barbra."

Actor Charlie Sheen showed us some love. You know what that means...Winning!

@charliesheen: "Say NO to GMO!! Why are we eating genetically modified food? Why are the bees vanishing? You have a right to know..! CA VOTE YES ON PROP 37!"

@charliesheen:  "CA VOTERS you have a right to know what you're eating! Whether you support the use of GMO's or not... YOU deserve to KNOW YES on prop 37 RT"
