Prop. 27 vs. Prop. 20

Oct. 18, 2010 -- The fate of California's redistricting laws will be determined at the ballot box this year by the winner of two opposing initiatives. Prop. 27 is supported by Democratic campaign committees, unions and a well-heeled entertainment mogul named Haim Saban. The opposition to Prop. 27 and support of Prop. 20 is being funded almost entirely by two individuals: Charles T. Munger Jr., a self-employed physicist who has contributed over $11 million to the campaign group "Yes on 20, No on 27." and an additional million from Munger's wife Charlotte A. Lowell, an attorney.
