Meg Whitman Promises $100 million to Support Anti-Gay Marriage Prop 8

Equality California just announced that Yes on Prop. 8 supporter Meg Whitman has just wrote a $20 million check to her campaign to become the next Governor of California. She has also said she will spend more than $100 million of her own money to buy herself the job.

But unlike our current Republican governor who has refused to defend Prop. 8 in federal court and who has signed dozens of LGBT rights bills, Whitman has advocated for eliminating our right to marry. If elected, she would likely defend Prop. 8 in court with taxpayer dollars, not to mention what she could do with the stroke of a pen to pro-LGBT bills that pass the legislature.

While it is unlikely we could match her dollar for dollar, we can fight her anti-equality efforts on the ground.

Every dollar you give to Equality California will go directly to help elect 100% pro-equality candidates and stop candidates like Meg Whitman. With the recent election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts — with the financial support of anti-LGBT groups like the National Organization for Marriage — our opponents have renewed vigor to win as many seats as they can across the country to prevent us from ever achieving equality.
