Sacramento Bee Editorial: Brown's choice: Constitution first

01/03/08: The Sacramento Bee joins the San Francisco Chronicle in supporting California Attorney General Brown for his argument that proponents of Proposition 8 lack a compelling justification to deprive individuals of the fundamental right to marry. Like the Chronicle, the Bee favorably compares Brown's action with that of his predecessor, California Attorney General Thomas Lynch, who filed a brief in Reitman v. Mulkey, 64 Cal. 2d 529 (1966), aff'd 387 U.S. 369 (1967), challenging a measure voters adopted in 1964 to repeal a fair housing law and to ban fair housing laws.
