Thank you Ellen!

Now, I'm not saying that it was my letter that led Ellen to produce the following PSA, but I did post my letter two days ago...just saying.

This video was released with the following press release.


Ellen Urges Californians to Vote NO on Prop. 8

Campaign Applauds Ellen's Move

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, LOS ANGELES – The NO on Prop 8 campaign, Equality for All, today thanked Ellen DeGeneres for releasing a video message urging Californians to vote no on Proposition 8. Ellen released the public service announcement to confront the false and misleading scare tactics being used by the proponents of Prop 8.

Ellen's message says, "Hi, I'm Ellen DeGeneres. I got to do something this year I never thought I'd ever be able to do: I got married. It was the happiest day of my life. There are people out there raising millions of dollars to try and take that right away from me. You've seen their ads on TV. They're twisting the truth, and they're trying to scare you. I believe in fairness. I believe in compassion. I believe in equality for all people. Proposition 8 does not. Please, please, vote NO on Prop. 8."

"Ellen DeGeneres is someone Californians know and respect," said Patrick Guerriero, Campaign Director. "Her voice has a tremendous ability to elevate this conversation above the scare tactics and help people understand what's at stake for the people they know and care about."

"Fair-minded Californians agree that we should not eliminate the fundamental rights of our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers and our family members," said Guerriero. "Like Ellen, fair-minded Californians are going to vote no on Prop 8."

The campaign released information to debunk the lies of proposition supporters late last week. Ellen says the proposition proponents are "twisting the truth and trying to scare you," and the Equality for All campaign agrees.
