Washington DC -- Today, the California Right to Know Yes on 37 campaign sent letters to the U.S. Department of Justice requesting a criminal investigation of the No on 37 campaign for possible fraudulent misuse of the official seal of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 

“The Justice Department should investigate this fraudulent dirty trick perpetrated by the No on 37 campaign,” said Gary Ruskin, campaign manager of California Right to Know Yes on 37.  “They are running a campaign of lies, deceit and trickery, and some of it may be criminal.”

Orange Jumpsuits for the No on 37 Campaign?

It's just not right. That's why we reported their latest dirty trick to the US Department of Justice. The pesticide-industry campaign has already been caught misrepresenting Stanford University (three times), misleading voters in the state voter guide (says the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics), and bombarding the airwaves with misleading ads (according to newspaper fact checkers).

But their latest trick is more serious than all of that...
