Those Who Do and Those Who Don’t - By Mark R. Kerr

As previously reported in an editorial in this publication (issue 1269), a review (and publication of businesses and individuals) of the campaign finance reports for the proponents ( of Proposition 102 - the proposed and now state constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman, had commenced, joining economic boycott efforts that were had begun in Florida and California, where two other amendments were on their general election ballots.

Proponents of these measures decried this move to list those who believe that all citizens of these states and this country don’t deserve equal rights under the law and constitution, adding that what if they published a list of those who gave money to fight these measures for which this reporter says to go for it and lets show those who do and those who don’t support “equal justice under the law.” So with that, continuing on from the editorial in the previous edition of this publication, more individuals and businesses who gave contributions, monetary, in kind or otherwise or who conducted transactions with the proponents of Proposition 102 in Arizona because LGBT consumers have the right to refuse service as well.
