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. In support of Proposition 8, I donated several hundred dollars to several groups who supported Proposition 8, including National Organization for Marriage California - Yes on 8, Sponsored by National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family, Alliance Defense Fund, and several other less familiar organizations. 4. In support of Proposition 8, I placed bumper stickers on my cars and sent emails supporting Proposition 8. 5. In support of Proposition 8, I also placed yard signs in my front yard, which is on a residential street. I usually had two or three signs in the yard at a time. 6. In the days leading up to the election, these signs were removed or destroyed three or four times. Sometimes, the signs were taken or destroyed during the day; other times, the signs were taken or destroyed at night. 7. On one occasion when my signs were taken, my neighbor (an off-duty police officer) got in his car and began to follow the car that had taken the signs. While following the car, he called 911 and alerted the local police department about the situation. When he caught up with them, the mother and teenagers who were in the car had dozens of "Yes on 8" signs in the car. I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.
