Supporters of Prop. 56, a Nov list magnitude that would travel a cost of cigarettes by $2 a pack, are accusing their opponents of defilement a law and intentionally treacherous voters.
“This a blatant defilement of California choosing law,” pronounced Andy Stroud, an profession representing a “Yes on 56” campaign.
The debate surrounds a website that seemed to be for a “Yes” debate though was unequivocally for a “No” campaign.
For voters, a website was easy to find. They could simply form “YesOnProposition56.org,” and they would be redirected to a hostile campaign.
“The mistreat here is that they are tricking voters,” American Cancer Society orator Tim Gibbs said.
At 11 a.m. Monday, a American Cancer Society, a organisation ancillary Prop. 56, filed a cease-and-desist sequence opposite Redwood Pacific Public Affairs, a Sacramento organisation that purchased a website.
“It’s called cybersquatting,” Stroud explained. “It happens a lot in domestic campaigns.”
In a multi-million-dollar fight over cigarettes, Prop. 56 supporters were endangered that electorate competence be confused by a website.
“So, they are re-directing web trade from ‘Yes on 56’ to ‘No on 56,’” Stroud said. “We contend that’s a defilement of California law and sovereign law as well.”
The “Yes on 56” debate also filed a grave censure with a California Attorney General’s Office and a California Secretary of State.
“The bottom line is that this bootleg function needs to stop,” Gibbs said.
A orator for a “No on 56” debate pronounced a use of a website was an “inadvertent error.” By 12:30 p.m. Monday, a argumentative website was out of service.
Redwood Pacific orator Rick Claussen expelled a matter saying: “I was not wakeful that it was holding place and it should never have happened. we apologize for it.This is not a approach we do business.”
In a statement, Claussen offering to spin over 4 opposite websites it had purchased with identical “Yes on 56” names and reserved them to Prop. 56 supporters but cost.
But a conflict over Prop. 56, that also includes aloft taxes for e-cigarettes, has now turn even some-more intense.
“The consumer is being misled,” Stroud said. “It’s really dishonesty on consumers as voters.”
