With regard to the earlier story on Hollywood’s involvement in the Proposition 8 fight: “Jonathan Lewis, entrepreneur and political activist and scion of the Cleveland-based insurance fortune, is pledging to chip in $500,000 to defeat Proposition 8 if the entertainment industry does the same… His matching offer comes after Brad Pitt, and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, each chipped in $100,000 for the No on 8 campaign, after a flurry of stories showing that backers of Yes on 8 have out raised their counterparts. Curiously, at the time, little money to defeat the measure had come from the entertainment business, but the pace of fund-raising appears to be picking up. David Geffen recently donated another $50,000, adding to the $50,000 he already has given.” [Wilshire and Washington]
