Sacramento Bee Applauds Jerry Brown's Prop. 8 Position

The Sacramento Bee has penned this editorial, praising Jerry Brown's brief urging the California Supreme Court to invalidate Proposition 8. The basis: an analogy to Reitman v. Mulkey, the litigation invalidating Proposition14 (passed in 1964). There, too, the Attorney General refused to defend a discriminatory initiative that was invalidated by the California Supreme Court (and the the U.S. Supreme Court).
