SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN DENOUNCES PROP 8 Feinstein Speaks Directly to Voters in New Television Ad

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - 10/28/2008 - Today the NO on Prop 8 campaign released a new television spot featuring Senator Diane Feinstein who, speaking directly to voters, tells Californians "Proposition 8 would be a terrible mistake for California. It's about discrimination and we must always say NO to that."

"We are so moved to have the strong, trusted and independent voice of Senator Feinstein joining the chorus of those voting NO on 8," said Patrick Guerriero, Campaign Director for NO on Prop 8 . "California voters know that Senator Feinstein speaks from the heart and it matters when she urges voters to reject this unfair initiative."

The Feinstein ad represents a significant purchase by the NO on Prop 8 campaign and will run statewide. Feinstein, speaking directly to the camera, says:

"In my lifetime, I've seen discrimination. And I see it again in Proposition 8. Proposition 8 would be a terrible mistake for California. It changes our Constitution. Eliminates fundamental rights. And treats people differently under the law.

"Proposition 8 is not about schools or our kids. It's about discrimination and we must always say NO to that.

"No matter how you feel about marriage, vote against discrimination.

"And vote NO on 8."

The ad's placement on statewide television happens to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the murder of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk. Feinstein, who was President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors 30 years ago, immediately became the city's mayor at a time of great unrest and anguish. Re-elected twice, she became the first California woman elected to the United States Senate.
