MonsantoCalifornia could have been the first state in the nation to mandate the labeling of genetically engineered foods. We would have joined more than  60 countries  where consumers have the right to know if their food has been genetically modified.

But the prospect of Proposition 37 terrified the junk food and pesticide companies that want to keep us in the dark about what we eat.

The "No on 37" campaign  spent $46 million  burying the state's voters in an avalanche of misleading ads and outright falsehoods. Their efforts defeated the proposition, 53 percent to 47 percent.

But Monsanto and their peeps didn't just spend $46 million promoting their opinion. They also lied and got away with it. Check out these examples:
