Lynn Compton continues to make the false claim that the county Board of Supervisors voted to “gut Proposition 13” and raise sales taxes. They didn’t, and they can’t.
Only the voters can change Proposition 13, and only the voters can raise their own sales taxes.
Compton either doesn’t understand tax laws or the powers (authority) of the county supervisors. Or both.
We can understand her lack of knowledge about supervisory duties, but as a former law student, she should know the law. Why then does she repeat these false claims? We can only speculate that winning is more important to her than being correct.
