Actress Kathy Griffin takes down Big Tobacco's misleading ad opposing Prop 56

October 31, 2016

As part of their ongoing deceptive campaign opposing California Proposition 59, they ran an ad in which a "white lady gardening" who bore a remarkable resemblance to actress Kathy Griffin urged women to vote against Prop 56. As the ad urged, Griffin "followed the money" and found that Big Tobacco paid for the ad.
She then posted her own ad on YouTube correcting the record.
I've been telling the Yes on 56 campaign that the best response to Philip Morris and Reynolds' disinformation campaign was humor.  Griffin proves it.  The campaign should get her permission and put the video on TV.
