"This resolution adds nothing to the debate about the validity of Proposition 8. It is simply designed to get press coverage for the legislators involved. The California Supreme Court, at our request, has already decided to hear the challenges to Proposition 8. We are confident that Prop. 8 will be upheld, as many legal scholars have recently commented. The Court is not swayed by meaningless legislative resolutions that have no bearing on the outcome of the court challenges."
-- Andrew Pugno, General Counsel of Yes on 8/Protect Marriage.com, in response to this week's resolutions in both houses of the California legislature to condemn Prop 8 as an usurpation of their branch of government. Mr. Pugno's statement was e-mailed to Bilerico Project.
