State Attorney General Kamala Harris has a reputation for politically slanting summaries of ballot initiatives. The latest involves the pension reform initiative recently approved for circulation. Proponents suggest her summary makes it read as if current pension holders will be affected, which isn't the intent of the initiative.

The Sacramento Bee's Dan Walters points out her efforts to mislead voters could backfire should the initiative pass despite her deception:

Wouldn't that be something?

Cut benefits and wages. Send jobs overseas to Communist countries. Incarcerate more prisoners than the rest of the world combined.
