Prop. 8 supporters persecuted for donations

Charlie Butts and Marty Cooper - OneNewsNow

Proposition 8 supporters continue to face harassment from same-sex "marriage" proponents...

The Washington Times reports attorney Charles LiMandri received hateful emails and phone calls after he gave $10,000 in support of traditional marriage. He says was called a homophobe, a bigot, and a Nazi. Even when he tried to explain that he was simply hoping to preserve traditional marriage, his opponents would not listen. So LiMandri collected the emails and filed a lawsuit on behalf of Prop. 8 supporters.

"We feel that the laws that require disclosure of contributors to a ballot initiative are being abused here because the opposition is basically targeting people to get this type of abuse, in some cases even getting their businesses boycotted and in some cases getting death threats," he notes.
