The limited retraction: According to a posting on Yelp, a guy named Rick Baker is the franchisee for the Hillcrest location of Golden Spoon, reported as being owned by Roger & Heather Clawson. He is reportedly not affiliated with Yes on 8 or the Clawsons and fully supports the gay community of San Diego. Roger Clawson is the Franchising President to of Golden Spoon - his wife Heather gave the $5,000 donation.
The dishonor roll is a listing of major contributors to the Yes on 8 fund. Ironically, both are happy to take gay dollars to increase their personal wealth, but draw the line at believing in true equality by contributing their dollars (and indirectly, ours) to the Yes on 8 cause. I say, if they don't honor our rights entitlement, we shouldn't give them have our money!
If you are coordinating an activity to keep the dollars out of the hands of these businesses, please let me know (lori(at)hahnathome(dot)com) so we can give you some publicity.
What would make it hurt? Just a little? Hit ‘em in the wallet – bigtime.
