Money continues to roll into both sides of Proposition 8 in California. For the most part, the No on 8 side has been bankrolled by Hollywood’s “elite” with $25,000 a plate dinners and Spielberg / Pitt Six Digit contributions.
The Yes on 8 side has been mostly funded by individuals, which means that the average Californian, and some from the Other 49, have dug deep to give.
(It means a lot more to give $1,000 when you only make $45,000 a year compared to actors, singers and movie moguls who spend $15,000 in an afternoon shopping.
One of Prop 8’s supporters has just stepped forward to match dollar for dollar up to a million dollars. It looks like the playing field might level just a bit.
