California First Lady Maria Shriver revealed today in an interview on KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that she will vote against Proposition 8, which would eliminate marriage equality. Her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, previously announced he would oppose the measure but has been silent on it recently.
LOS ANGELES -- California's first lady says she is voting against a ballot initiative that would prohibit same-sex couples from getting married in California.
Maria Shriver said in an interview with KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that she is voting no on Proposition 8.
Shriver said, "I believe in people's right to choose a partner that they love, and that's a decision that I have come to, and I have felt that way for a long time."
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger also opposes Prop. 8.
I wonder if the state's first couple has donated money to the NO campaign? And I wonder if the governor, who promised the Log Cabin Republicans last spring that he would "be there" to defeat the measure, will take any time from further destruction to the state's budget to speak out this final week against hate?
