Suspicious motives

I've seen a lot of ads telling me to vote "no" on propositions 86 and 87 -- the tobacco tax and the tax on oil companies. These ads tell us about all the people and groups that are against these propositions.

I find it curious that they fail to mention that the largest company against the tobacco tax is R. J. Reynolds Tobacco and the biggest contributor against the oil tax is Chevron Oil. Makes you a little suspicious about their motives.
