SDGLN Poll: Readers urge judge to release Proposition 8 videotapes

SAN DIEGO – An overwhelming majority of readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll say that district Judge James Ware should unseal the Proposition 8 trial tapes for public viewings. The hearing is Monday, Aug. 29.

Our poll question was: Should district Judge Ware unseal the Proposition 8 trial tapes for public viewings?

The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 94% of readers say that the Prop 8 trial tapes should be available to the public for viewing, 4% said the judge should not release the tapes, and 3% said they were not sure if the judge should release the tapes.

The SDGLN Reader Poll is open for voting for seven consecutive days. A new poll question will debut each Monday.

This week’s poll question asks readers: What are your plans for this Labor Day weekend? 1) Get out of town 2) Take a “staycation” 3) Keep my normal routine.
