Gov. Schwarzenegger has kicked off his ad campaign in support of Props. 74-77. One ad features the governor alone, looking into the camera and explaining that "big government labor unions" have blocked his efforts to reform California government.
The other has four citizens explaining briefly why they think the measures he is supporting are good for the state. Schwarzenegger does not appear. You can see the ads here.

Of all the tidbits the governor dribbled out in his rapid-fire series of interviews Tuesday, the most intriguing was this one, where he told Capitol Weekly that he would support limits on corporate contributions to campaigns without shareholder approval.
That idea is being floated in response to Proposition 75, the measure to require public employee unions to get consent from their members every year to deduct political money from their paychecks.
Wouldn't the real parallel be corporate deductions from employee paychecks for political purposes?
