Florida's Marriage Amendment Under Fire

Ad Feedback

Supporters of Florida's initiative to define marriage as the union between one man and one woman are facing heat from opponents over campaign donations.

Florida Red and Blue, an independent group against traditional marriage protection, claims the pro-marriage group Yes2Marriage.org broke election rules by not revealing where donation money came from.

They are asking that Yes2Marriage.org (formerly known as Florida4Marriage.com) be forced to name its donors and pull any TV ads paid for with the anonymous donation funds.

Yes2Marriage.org is the driving force behind the state's "Amendment 2" and defended anonymous donations amounting to about $350,000 in court Monday.

The Liberty Counsel, which represented Yes2Marriage.org, called the suit "desperate."

Liberty attorneys said it "shows [opponents] are in panic" over passage of Amendment 2. They are calling for sanctions against Florida Red and Blue for their "frivolous lawsuit."

A recent Mason-Dixon's poll of 625 likely voters showed 55 percent supporting Amendment 2, while 35 percent opposed. Constitutional amendments require 60 percent approval for passage.
