Trojan horse initiative
The allegation that a particular ballot measure is a "Trojan Horse" initiative is a subjective judgment, since it involves reaching conclusions about the true motivations of the sponsors of an initiative.
- West Hollywood Billboard Taxes and Regulation, Measure WH-A (March 2011). Measure A would tax billboard revenue, and it would also make it easier to erect Tall Wall billboards.
- California Proposition 98 (2008). Supporters promoted it as protecting the public against eminent domain abuse, not mentioning that it would have repealed rent control.
- California Proposition 99 (2008) Supporters promoted it as protecting the public against eminent domain abuse, not mentioning that it had minimal protections against eminent domain abuse.
- California Proposition 93 (2008) Supporters promoted it as a pro-term limits initiative, without noting that it would have extended the amount of time state legislators can stay in office.
