NYTimes Editorial Board Endorses Prop. 8 Mormon-Financing Investigation

The New York Times voiced its support for an investigation by The California Fair Political Practices Commission into whether or not the Mormon Church illegally contributed funds to the Prop. 8 campaign, saying “Churches, which risk their tax-exempt status if they endorse candidates, have more leeway in referendum campaigns. Still, when they enter the political fray, they have the same obligation to follow the rules that nonreligious groups do.” [NYT]
