GOP chairman in San Diego County blasts Prop. 8 ruling

August 4, 2010 |  5:49 pm

The chairman of the Republican Party in San Diego County said Wednesday that the ruling striking down the voter-approved ban on gay marriage as unconstitutional is an example of an activist judge "legislating from the bench."

Tony Krvaric said the local party "affirms its unwavering support for traditional marriage" and looks forward to the U.S. Supreme Court affirming Proposition 8.

On the other side, Dr. Delores A. Jacobs, chief executive of the San Diego Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transsexual Community Center, called the ruling "a great day for every American who believes that the U.S. Constitution guarantees us all equal treatment and due process."
