Fraud Bill Goes Down, Lawmakers “Wanted”

Sponsored by:

Consumer advocates are blaming two Democratic lawmakers for the failure of a bill that would enact a three strikes ban on corporations that commit three felonies in a 10-year period.

The advocates have placed a fake “wanted” poster of the two lawmakers on a web page, accusing them of being soft on corporate crime. Their ire was sparked by the failure of Senators Debra Bowen of Marina del Rey and Jackie Speier of Daly City to vote for a bill that went down to defeat yesterday in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
