Palo Alto: Stanford University is investigating the continued misuse of the university’s name to push a political agenda to oppose Proposition 37. Today, new evidence was presented to Stanford documenting how the No on 37 campaign has repeatedly misrepresented the affiliation of their lead spokesperson, Dr. Henry Miller, in campaign ads, in violation of Stanford University policy.

Oakland -- As proof positive of the No on 37 campaign's lack of credibility, the anti-consumer campaign was caught for the second time in a week misrepresenting Stanford University. As the Los Angeles Times reported Oct. 5, Stanford forced the anti-consumer campaign to yank its first ad off the air and reshoot it, because it violated university policy by using the university to imply endorsement of a political position.
The ad falsely identified Henry Miller as a doctor at Stanford, when he is actually a researcher at the Hoover Institute. Five days later, an anti-Proposition 37 mailer arrived in the homes of millions of California voters, falsely identifying Henry Miller once again as a doctor at Stanford University.
