Zombies attack California voters

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Pitted against well-heeled political donors like Charles Munger Jr., who alone donated $23 million to support Proposition 32, how can middle-class voters have a voice in politics?
It seems to cost an arm and a leg to be a political player these days.
So workers decided to counter cash with comedy. “Boo on 32,” a political satire starring the walking dead, is released just in time for Halloween and showing on computer screens everywhere.
The short film plays on the notion that a ballot measure to block middle-class voters from the political process has been attempted twice before (Proposition 226 in 1998 and Proposition 75 in 2005). It was killed by voters each time, but it just won’t…stay…dead.
Now Proposition 32 is a “zombie bill” resurrected from the political graveyard to silence the voices of middle-class voters, for-ev-er.
Watch this example of how middle-class families are reaching out and informing voters about political issues this election. Enter the zombie zone, if you dare. http://www.seiu521.org/pledge
