California Senator Barbara Boxer today sent a letter to supporters urging them to vote “no” on Proposition 8: “Prop 8 will eliminate rights. Those are the facts. But that’s not what you’ll see on TV from the supporters of Prop 8. The Yes on 8 campaign is spending tens of millions of dollars to distort the facts and hide the true purpose of this divisive initiative… I know from experience that to beat the smear machine, you need grassroots supporters to help fight back. The No on 8 campaign has a statewide grassroots effort underway with house parties, phone banks and rallies across the state to spread the word about this unfair initiative.” [Oxdown Gazette]
