Today's Loser: The Families and Ed Levy

Afternoon Jolt already came up with today's winner—the Seattle Police Officer's Guild, for that condo they've got in Maui.

Here's the loser: The city's proposed $231 million families and education levy, which helps the Seattle Public School system.

Given that State Auditor Brian Sonntag called the current financial mismanagement scandal at Seattle Public Schools "one of the most egregious cases he has seen in 18 years on the job" (according to the Seattle Times damning report), voters may be chilly to the idea of helping the system out financially.
