Fake ‘progressive’ mailers urge yes on Uber/Lyft’s Prop. 22

The Most Revolutionary Act

Political mailers masquerading as progressive voter guides and endorsing Proposition 22, the initiative backed by Uber and Lyft, are showing up in Southern California voters’ mailboxes.

The fine print on one mailer says it was prepared by the “Feel the Bern, Progressive Voter Guide,” which is not an actual organization. Neither are the “Council of Concerned Women Voters Guide” nor the “Our Voice, Latino Voter Guide,” whose mailers make the same endorsements as Feel the Bern.

Mailed political fliers typically identify the organization that paid for the literature. But that information was conspicuously absent from Feel the Bern and the other two mailers.

The mass mailings have the same Long Beach mailing address, which is the office of Gould and Orellana LLC. Gould and Orellana calls itself the “Political Reporting Experts.” SFGATE tried to contact the firm, but no one answered the phone and the voicemail boxes were full.
