I am a resident of the state of California over 18 years of age, and my statements herein are based on personal knowledge. 2. I supported the passage of Proposition 8. 3. I am a member of the support Proposition 8. 4. In support of Proposition 8, I spoke to many individuals about Proposition 8, and was successful in having some people who intended to vote "no" on Proposition 8 change their votes to "yes" on Proposition 8. 5. In support of Proposition 8, I also placed a "Yes on 8" sign on my front lawn. I live on the main street of a private country club. 6. My neighbor, who is an attorney, stopped me about the sign. He told me that I was a "bigot" and an "enabler." My neighbor was angry and belligerent when he stopped me to speak to me about Proposition 8. 7. Many of the members of the country club have made rude comments to me about my sign. The openly gay members of the country club have changed their attitudes toward me. They used to greet me warmly; now, they give me looks of disdain and do not greet me as I pass. 8. After Proposition 8 passed in the November 2008 election, a well-known Hollywood person put a "No on 8" sign on my lawn. After I took the "No on 8" sign down, this person put up another "No on 8" sign. I continued taking down the "No on 8" signs that this person put up, and this person continued to take them down for approximately two weeks after the election. I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.
