Prop 8 and Prop C: States Rights and Political Consequences

Hosted by  • 

Two years ago, 52% of California voters banned same-sex marriage, a ruling upheld by the State Supreme Court.  But yesterday, a federal judge in San Francisco ruled that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. It could be a political landmark, too, if some voters see it as another federal intrusion like the overturning of Arizona’s immigration law and the requirements of healthcare reform.
