Yes on 8 Refuses to Talk to Parents of the Children Whom they Feature in their Ad

Timothy Kincaid

October 30th, 2008

I told you of Yes on 8’s decision to use children in their anti-gay marriage ads without the permission of their parents.

It is now official. Yes on 8 Campaign manager, Frank Schubert, is a foul and disgusting person.

From the Sacramento Bee:

Then the parents went to Schubert’s office at Schubert Flint Public Affairs at 14th and L. “I’ve heard he’s a father,” said one parent. “I want to ask him how he would feel if his children were manipulated like this.” She wanted to appeal to him as a moral human being. “This is our last hope,” she said.

Neither Schubert nor others in his office would speak to the two parents. Schubert’s office called security and a guard escorted them out of the building.

This is Frank Schubert.

I did not look for nor did I post pictures of his children or tell you where they live. That’s the difference between me and Schubert.

Via and, from the No on 8 folks, who in turn seem to have gotten a leak from Field Poll….

Word is the Field Poll released tomorrow will show Proposition 8 with 44% Yes, 49% No in California.

I guess that “genius” writeup Schuster got in the Sacramento Bee isn’t going to look so good on Wednesday.

When Frank’s not busy with his Yes on 8 duties, he’s been known to enjoy a relaxing smoke. He’d also be the first to admit that being a smoker in health-conscious California is no easy thing. In Frank’s own words:

“I am not asking for sympathy, but I am asking people to seriously think about how acceptable it has become to attack smokers, and think about the broader implications this has on basic American principles. Like, say, this crazy idea of liberty and freedom that is at the core of our civilization.

If there is one thing the Constitution of the United States stands for, it’s the principle of equal protection for all. It’s not just the favored who enjoy constitutional rights. Or the privileged. Or the rich. Or the popular. It’s ALL. Yes, even smokers.”

You tell ‘em, Frank. It’s always a pleasure to read a Yes on 8 campaign manager defending the principle that smokers deserve equal protection no matter how unpopular they might be. Now I’m off to advise ALL my gay friends to take up your bad habit and thereby qualify themselves in your eyes for the equal protection that you’re working so hard to deny them.

Cain Hamm,

Please provide evidence that the Mormon Church is encouraging the distribution of that postcard.
