At 3 p.m. today, Californians for Retirement Security will launch a new website designed to put pension reformers on the defensive. DontScapegoatUs.com fixes its criticisms squarely on eight figures (with Photoshopped horns, above) who are leading the battle to change public pensions, including Dan Pellissier, president of California Pension Reform; Marcia Fritz, executive director of the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility; and an "anonymous out-of-state billionaire" (represented on the website with an avatar that looks like Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner) who is reportedly backing pension change efforts.
The site delves into the backgrounds and connections of the pro-pension-change players, cites various pension facts and quotes from news stories that support the pension status quo.
The State Worker got a sneak preview of the website, which won't be launched until 3 p.m.
DontScapegoatUs.com's Twitter hash tag will be #demongoats.
