Bigoted Prop 8 Supporters Getting Ugly (ok, uglier)
This is sure to win them new friends:
A threatening letter has sparked a new controversy here in San Diego surrounding the gay marriage debate. Donors who gave money to the No on Prop 8 campaign say they received blackmail letters demanding money, and the Yes on 8 campaign now says the letters were sent by their employees.
The letter from Yes on 8 came by certified mail, demanding at least $10,000. Jim Abbot knows exactly why he’s being targeted – his business gave $10,000 to a group called Equality California, which supports No on Prop 9.
Jim says nearly 25 percent of his staff is gay.
“We wanted to support their freedom to marry,” he said.
The letter says if Jim doesn’t give an equal donation to Yes on 8, the name of his company will be published. It reads in part, “It is only fair for Proposition 8 supporters to know which companies and organizations oppose traditional marriage.”
As is stuff like screaming and grabbing cameras from people taking video of you.
