California's 26th District (CA - 26)
Updated: Aug 18, 2014
Jeff Gorell is not who he seems – he’s a lobbyist who sides with corporate special interests over women and middle class families.
- All voters should know that Gorell would allow insurance companies to charge women more than men for the same coverage and deny coverage for critical women’s health services including birth control and cancer screenings. He refused to support equal pay for equal work for women. And Gorell refused to support the Violence Against Women Act that protects victims of domestic violence, rape and sexual assault.
- Spanish-speaking Latinos should know that Julia Brownley is a strong voice for families. She is a leading advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and is fighting for equal pay for working women. Jeff Gorell doesn’t care about our communities and families. He refused to support the Violence Against Women Act that protects victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and refused to support equal pay for women. He was a close adviser to former Governor Pete Wilson, has repeatedly voted against immigrants’ rights in the Assembly, and supported Arizona’s anti-immigrant law requiring police to detain people on the street for questioning and demand identification.
