Kim Kardashian probably wishes the Courage Campaign wasn't keeping up with her finances.

The group, which is pushing for a proposed November ballot initiative that would raise the tax percentages by 3-5 percent on California's millionaires, have debuted a new video centered around the ubiquitous reality TV mogul, and it doesn't paint her in the best light.

In the video on their website, Kardashian is seen flaunting her wealth, even shown bragging: "Being on TV has changed my life, because you get lots of free stuff."

The group tries to illustrate the disparity by pointing out in the video that Kardashian paid 10.3 percent tax on the $12 million she made in 2010, compared to the 9.3 percent those with a middle class income of $47,000 paid out.

"That's not OK," the group says, "especially when budget cuts are decimating schools and critical programs for children, the elderly, and the disabled."

Supporters of the initiative say it would give the Golden State a $6 billion boost to funnel towards the aforementioned causes.

The ad concludes, proclaiming, "Not everyone was born a Kardashian, but we all need to pay our fair share."

The Kardashian rep did not respond to the AP's request for a comment regarding the political ad.
