Checkout time: 'Grand' hotel loses a few more

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 18-31Yet another organization has pulled its conference from San Diego's Manchester Grand Hyatt because, at least in part, of owner Doug Manchester's decision to donate 125,000 to Proposition 8. This time it's the San Diego County Employees Retirement Association who have decided to hold their pension board's annual October conference elsewhere:

Makes sense. After all, if you're a group for whom social security is a big focus, you absolutely would be concerned with standing against one of the most anti-social, security-depriving referenda to ever grace the California landscape!

Great... now it is hitting him in the b***, e.g. wallet!! and he is wringing his hands and backpedaling. Won't even admit his orignal bigotry. Just claims that CIVIL MARRIAGE EQUALITY will the remove the tax exempt status of Catholic schools????!!! Oh, really.
He's almost as unbelievable as Obama, not understanding the law.

So far EQ CA has done exactly ZERO JOB.... in educating the public about what PROP 8 would do. Why haven't educational ads run in papers? Why haven't they had it written up as a "letter to the editor' and then let all their member send it out to their local papers?
UMMMM... guess you can tell I am getting a little disheartened with all their begging and not getting anything in return.

LOrion, have you seen any issues ads in the print or broadcast media from the Pro-H8 groups? They may be waiting until September or at least a closer time frame to the election.

According to Frank Schubert, 'Yes on 8' campaign manager, the mobilization of LDS (Mormon) volunteers could save his campaign up to $26 million in costs related to micro-targeting persuadable voters.

So much for campaign finance rules.
