“The Supreme Court did the right thing today by confirming that California State transparency laws are applicable to everyone who engages in the political process,” said Rick Zbur executive director for Equality California. “Transparency allows the public to know who is bankrolling campaigns that have far reaching implications on every citizen.”

“This particular case demonstrates the strategy of LGBT equality opponents – they want to run campaigns in secret to avoid responsibility at any cost. And proponents of Proposition 8 were advocating for special treatment to allow them to skirt state transparency laws which is simply unacceptable.”
