NO on Prop 8 Campaign Slams Dishonest Mailer Targeting African-American Voters

Mailer Misrepresents Sen. Obama Who is Opposed to Proposition 8; Misleading African-American Voters is Clearly the Goal of Deceptive Prop 8 Campaign

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The NO on Prop 8 campaign today condemned an official Proposition 8 mailer clearly targeted to African-American voters that completely misrepresents and lies about Sen. Barack Obama's position on Proposition 8.

"It is despicable that the Yes on 8 campaign would send out a last minute mailer to the African-American community in a clear attempt to mislead voters about Senator Barack Obama's position on Proposition 8," said District Attorney Harris. "The leadership of this campaign should issue an immediate retraction and apology for this transparent attempt to deceive the public."

The Obama letter reads in part:

"As the Democratic nominee for President, I am proud to join with and support the LGBT community in an effort to set our nation on a course that recognizes LGBT Americans with full equality under the law...And that is why I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states. For too long, issues of LGBT rights have been exploited by those seeking to divide us. It's time to move beyond polarization and live up to our founding promise of
