Corporate personhood doesn’t belong on ballot

Money in politics is a large issue, and the rise of so-called super-PACs is a troublesome trend. Whether you agree or disagree with the U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling that corporations have the right to spend in elections, the ballot in San Francisco is not the place to take a stand.

Proposition G is a policy statement with no teeth about an issue that is not even local. Policy statements on local issues can be significant, but this fight needs to be fought in Washington, D.C.

It doesn’t matter how you vote, because the Beltway won’t be listening.
