Supporters of the state's Proposition 8 recently tried to over turn the Political Reform Act. They now think that donations to political campaigns should be kept secret. People against the proposition stopped giving their business and their money to restaurants, for example, whose owners gave money in support of the proposition. Well, come on, now! Supporters of the proposition also claimed to have been harassed and threatened by opponents of the proposition. Okay, maybe that's going too far but, give me a break, didn't they threaten the well being of gays and lesbians?
After a one hour hearing in his Sacramento courtroom, U.S. District Judge Morrison England wasn't impressed by the Prop 8 supporters whining. He summed up the matter neatly in his ruling against the proponents, saying: "If there ever needs to be sunshine on a particular issue, it's a ballot measure."
