Good. Liberals only believe in stuff like free speech and open democracy when it supports their immoral agenda. Anti-Prop 8 mobs have threatened and intimidated traditional marriage supporters for awhile now and had the mainstream press has said little about it. Maybe the courts can show these self-righteous bigots that boycotting businesses is one thing, but a line is crossed when you use violence and harassment to scare people whose views disagrees with yours.
After giving $10,000 to California's Proposition 8 campaign last year, Charles LiMandri began receiving some unexpected correspondence.
"I got about two dozen e-mails and hate phone calls," said Mr. LiMandri, who lives in San Diego. "They were calling me Nazi, homophobe, bigot. I tried to engage people once or twice - I said that Proposition 8 had nothing to do with being bigoted, it was about preserving marriage - but people don't want to engage on the issue."
As a lawyer, however, Mr. LiMandri knew what to do with the e-mails.
"I collected them and turned them in to the lawsuit," he said.
Those e-mails are now among hundreds of exhibits in a landmark case challenging California's campaign-finance reporting rules, which require the release of the names, addresses and employers of those who contribute $100 or more to ballot-measure committees.
The lawsuit argues that those who contribute to traditional-marriage initiatives should be exempt from having their names disclosed, citing the widespread harassment and intimidation of donors to the Proposition 8 campaign.
