6:37 pm
campaigns. and voting. >> reporter: dubbed the initiative for fair elections, a ballot measure would bar lobbiests and landlords with ten units or more and contractors and developers with business from contributing money to their political campaign. critics of the measure say it is at best misguided and at worse, a naked power grab. >> it's a power grab plain and simple. it is quite dishonest and i think it may not pass muster if it gets challenged into the supreme court. >> reporter: the ballot measure is backed squarely by unions and organized labor who would not be subject to its restrictions. but who say it is necessary to limit the influence of money in politics. >> it is time for san jose to stop that practice. and not allow those people to continue to buy their way into the political process. >> reporter: though they don't agree on much, the two sides acknowledged the ballot measure
6:38 pm
would not address independent expenditures. >> in the end, this will stack the deck in favor of one side of the argument. >> this is a step in the right direction. but it is not the cure-all. >> reporter: the backer haves six months to collect signatures to get it on the 2020 ballot. in san jose, devin fehely, kpix5. other news, richmond's police chief may be gone for good. just two days after the police union took an overwhelming vote of no confidence in its leader, a city official confirms chief allen brown is "out of the office for the foreseeable future." many union members want the city to fire brown or ask him to quit. in the meantime, assistant chief bisa french is in charge and when we asked for a reaction last night, she described her appointment to acting chief as "indefinite."
