Tell Whitman & Cooley: Don't Defend Prop. 8

This petition had 126 supporters

It's incredibly rare for the state not to defend an existing law in court, but that is exactly what happened in the federal case against Prop. 8. Governor Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown could have put the state's high-powered lawyers and resources behind Prop. 8 by defending it in court. Instead, they chose to keep the state out of the case.

Join Equality California in calling on Meg Whitman and Steve Cooley to state on the record that they will refuse to defend Prop. 8 in court, if elected. Let them know that, if they choose to stand on the side of bigotry, they can expect us to oppose them vehemently with our votes and our checkbooks.

Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris have pledged not to defend Prop. 8 going forward if elected governor and attorney general.

Demand that Meg Whitman and Steve Cooley do the same - Tell them: don't defend Prop. 8 and don't spend taxpayer dollars to do it.
