$1.00 a Day: Help FDL Cover the Prop 8 Trial and Beyond
Beginning this month, a Federal Court in San Francisco will review the California Supreme Court decision to uphold the infamous Proposition 8. This trial will be one of the most important civil rights cases in a generation, in which Bush/Gore 2000 adversaries David Boies and Ted Olson team up to defeat California's Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriages. We don't want to miss it.
FDL has grown a lot since we covered the Scooter Libby trial in 2006, and we now have an incredible group of full time writers and reporters like Jon Walker and David Dayen, in addition to our superb editing and tech crew. But that means the cost of publishing the blog on a daily basis has also increased dramatically. If 3,000 people donate just $1 a day, it allows us to pay our staff and our regular expenses and continue to produce independent journalism that is free from the limitations imposed by corporate, foundation or big donor funding.
Perry vs Schwarzenegger will set an important precedent in civil rights cases of this kind, and FDL won't let our readers miss a minute. Can you donate $1 a day to help us fund our regular work and send David Dayen and Marcy Wheeler to cover this historic trial?
