Marty Wisckoll has this post about the press conference today held by the Yes on 8 side. Our own Chris Prervatt was there and shot some video; he’ll file a more detailed report later.
Frank Schubert, director of the Prop. 8 campaign to ban gay marriage in the state, made an interesting statement at the press conference:
Schubert acknowledged the rights of Prop. 8 foes to protest and file lawsuits, and then said, “â€œWhat they donâ€™t have the right to do is harrass and intimidate people,â€ he said. â€œThey donâ€™t have a right to blacklist and boycott our supporters.â€
I agree with the first part; harrassment and intimidation are not tools to use (follow your own advice Frank-my No on 8 sign was destroyed on my lawn on election day).Â But No on 8 supporters absolutely do have a right to boycott their supporters and blacklist their people.Â I won’t set foot in El Pollo Loco or Corner Bakery again.
Time for Frank to recognize that there’s plenty of harrassment on both sides of the aisle.Â
