SACRAMENTO — Under pressure from some of her own supporters, Proposition 38 proponent Molly Munger said Monday she would take down a television advertisement critical of a tax plan backed by Gov. Jerry Brown on the same ballot.
"The ad that's been controversial is not going to be on the air, beginning tomorrow," Munger told a Sacramento television station Monday.
The decision came after a week of sparring by the two campaigns.
Munger complained that the ads for Brown's Proposition 30 were misleading, while the governor's allies said Munger was sabotaging both measures with a negative campaign.
Some of Munger's strongest supporters, including the California PTA and state Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, urged that her Yes on 38 campaign remove the ad.
