  •  Who paid for it? (none)
    Is there any indication of who paid for this flyer, or a return address? I wouldn't be at all surprised if the drug companies put together a fake Democratic party flyer in the hopes of confusing voters.
    •  Doesn'r really say who paid for it (none)
      It just says "prepared" by "Democratic Voters Choice".....and Not an Offical Politcal Party Organization....

      But it has "The Democratic Party" printed on it as "a return" address of shorts....

      •  Ethics complaint (none)
        You're looking at a flyer which was apparently distributed widely around San Diego:
        Some Democrats and City Council candidate Lorena Gonzalez are objecting to a political mailer that was sent to San Diego residents in recent days.

        In some versions of the piece, the brochure appears to be from the Democratic Party, although the fine print shows that the real backer is a group called "Democratic Voters Choice."

        There is apparently at least one outstanding ethics complaint about the flyer, and there is a real 527 called "Democratic Voters Choice", but I don't know if they're actually involved in sending the flyer, who their actual donors are, or what they're actually doing.
    •  OK...in the really tiny print... (none)
      "Not paid for or authorized by candidates and ballot measures not marked by an *."

      And...the ballot's are ALL marked by an *

      •  double negation (none)
        That would mean it's paid for or authorized by all candidates/ballot measures on the ballot ;-)
