PROMINENT MORMONS WERE REIMBURSED FOR PROP 8
In what seems to be an endless line of embarrassments for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it is now coming to light that several prominent Mormon figures were actually reimbursed for their efforts and participation on the Yes On 8 campaign.
Below is a list of several of them, brought to my attention by my good friend Reed Cowen (many thanks to him for this). The full list can be seen at http://cal-access.sos.ca.gov/Campaign/Committees/Detail.aspx?id=1302592&session=2007&view=expenditures and I highly recommend that everyone views the list to see who they recognize.
Lawrence Research (Gary Lawrence, Mormon pollster and Meridian contributor): $528,877.35
Eagle Foundation (a Mormon PAC set up by Bart Marcois and David Parker): $135,912.76
Glen Greener (former Salt Lake City Police Commissioner, Meridian contributor, and now a GOP operative and sometime Cali property developer): $50,236.42
Sonja Brown (Protectmarriage.com communications director): $41,844.00
Zion Multimedia Corp.: $2,000.00
Rob Wirthlin: $768.18
So what does this all mean for the LDS church? Well it’s still unclear, and the list of those who were reimbursed may be getting longer as more is unearthed. But until then, you can count on more and more outcries against this “loving and tolerant” religion.
