Kardashian Can Pay More, CA Tax Proponents Say

A coalition of groups supporting a proposed ballot initiative asking Californians to boost taxes on the rich is targeting one of the state's most famous millionaires, reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

The Courage Campaign's online video says Kardashian made $12 million in 2010 but paid just 1 percentage point more in California income taxes than someone making $47,000.

The video urges Kardashian to support the tax increase, saying "we all need to pay our fair share."

The Courage Campaign and California Federation of Teachers are backing a proposed initiative that would raise tax rates for those who make more than $1 million annually to help fund schools and other programs.

A Kardashian spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
