The effort to place an initiative on November’s ballot that would repeal Proposition 8 fell short, it was announced this week. According to Love Honor Cherish, a Los-Angeles based marriage equality advocacy group that reportedly spearheaded the movement, proponents of the repeal did not gather the required 694,354 signatures within the state-mandated 150-day window after the November vote. Under California law, it is now too late to mount a new effort to repeal Prop. 8 in 2010. “Regrettably, Prop 8 will remain as a stain on our constitution until at least 2012, and perhaps later,” said John Henning, executive director of Love Honor Cherish.
