New ad by ‘Jerry, Inc’ mocks Whitman’s settlements

After several weeks of dark time, “Jerry Brown, Inc.” (otherwise known as California Working Families for Jerry Brown for Governor 2010) will soon be back on air.

Titled “Shoved,” it will begin airing a new TV spot (albeit cable rather than network) starting Monday, part of some last, parting shots against GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. No decision has been made on how long it will run, though the labor-backed group is working on another that should take “Jerry Brown, Inc.,” (the Whitman camp’s endearment) into Labor Day, when Brown will finally take the reins of his TV advertising campaign.

This 30-second ad makes light of a few of Whitman’s indiscretions, which she made go away with convenient settlements.
