Howard Jarvis turns on Assemblyman Adams

The latest adjustments to the California budget look like something out of a slasher movie - blood spilling everywhere. But that hasn't slowed anti-tax advocates from pursuing their mission of punishment for the handful of Republican legislators who dared endorse tax increases in the last round of budgeting. Now, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has "formally" endorsed the recall effort of Assemblyman Anthony Adams, R-Claremont, for "brazenly [violating] his pledge to his constituents not to raise their taxes."

From the Jarvis Political Action Committee's press release:
HJTA-PAC President Jon Coupal said the PAC's action is based both on principle and on the practical. "Voters have every right to toss out politicians who lie in order to gain office and who demonstrate they have no intention of defending the interests of those who elected them," said Coupal. "Blocking further damaging tax increases requires we have lawmakers the taxpayers can trust, and Adams has proven he cannot be trusted."
