Steve Lopez: Hammering Whitman on her failure to vote could be a winner for Brown

September 6, 2010 |  9:34 am

TalkBackLopez_187x105One of Jerry Brown's better lines at a Labor Day labor rally Monday morning was a jab at GOP rival Meg Whitman.

The Democratic candidate said he is not scripted and is not an advertisement; he is a lifelong resident of California.

And, he added, "Not only have I lived here, I've voted here all my life."

Brown will no doubt hammer Whitman on that point over and over during the two-month sprint to Election Day.

Does it matter, dear readers, that a candidate who didn't bother to vote through much of her adult life has already spent more than $100 million trying to convince you to vote for her?

Let us know your thoughts.
