Prop 8 & Video clips

Sean Penn was at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, where his portrayal of gay icon Harvey Milk won the Best Actor Awar.  He was asked about the passage of Proposition 8.

"The Proposition 8 thing was a fiasco in California. Mormon movement should be ashamed of itself, the black constituency that supported Prop 8 should be ashamed of itself." Penn was less certain of whether or not a pre-election day release of Milk would have helped beat Prop 8.

Video of the interview here.

This has been hitting the news - a video by the American News Project raising questions about the church's disclosure of financial investment in the proposition-8 campaign, particularly along the lines of educational aids, call centers, web sites, satellite feeds, etc.
