Doug Manchester, CEO of the Manchester Financial Group of San Diego contributed $125,000 to qualify an Initiative Constitutional Amendment, Proposition 8 for the November 4th ballot which defines marriage as only between a man and a woman.


“We feel that if Mr. Manchester and any other individuals give huge amounts of money to take away our freedom to marry, then the LGBT community, our families and our friends should fight back against these purveyors of hate,” said Fred Karger, Campaign Manager of the newly formed Californians Against Hate.
