Explosive Scraps and Thoughts by Chris Apollo Lynn

Prop 8 Supporters Denied Special Protection, Must Disclose Donations

leave a comment »

prop8_logo_reviseProp 8 supporters wanted a judge to overturn the mandatory public disclosure of political donations because it led to harassment and unfair treatment of supporters.  Funny, I would say that taking away marriage rights might also be considered harassment.

Prop 8 supporters have also suggested that the courts can’t overturn the will of the people.  Interestingly enough, the disclosure requirement was adopted by California voters.  Hypocritical anyone?

Thankfully, a U.S. District Judge refused to provide special protection for the Prop 8 supporters.
