Prop. 8 campaign can't hide donors' names
Proposition 8 proponents' complaint that a California campaign-finance disclosure law has led to harassment of same-sex marriage opponents failed to sway a federal judge, who refused Thursday to throw out the law or shield donors' names.

"If there ever needs to be sunshine on a particular issue, it's a ballot measure," U.S. District Judge Morrison England said after a one-hour hearing in his Sacramento courtroom.
Also, the page has a link: Look up Prop 8 donors. The search name function doesn't seem to work, but you can search by zip code.

well, that's interesting.

there are 7 donors from my zip code, from $25 to $200.

that feels kinda good.

and 66 donors against Prop. 8, from $25 to $1125.

It won't do the zip code search for my area, so I have to do the whole city.

133 records for Cambridge, though with multiple contributions by the same person that doesn't mean 133 people. (There's also a -$100 one offsetting the same person's $100. Not sure WTF is up with that.)

Three of those 133 are contributions in support of 8, from two people. The other 130? Opposition. Hooray for Cambridge.

re: Yay.
Vermont: no support. 28 (really, 26) contributed in opposition. Go Vermont!

I should say I live in Oakland, CA, so the number of donors is going to be much greater in California in general.


that said, it's still very cool that Cambridge and Vermont came through with the stats they did.

19 supporting contributions and 113 opposing in my town, but one of the supports is for a really large amt of money (I won't be doing business with that realtor). They don't have my contribution or the OH's so I guess their records aren't complete.
