Judge: Prop. 8 donors have no right to anonymity

Throwing out the arguments by backers of CA's Prop 8, a District Judge said that only small endangered groups should receive protection from public record of donations, not backers of winning elections.

Prop 8 supporters had complained of boycotts and other problems after donations  were recorded and placed on the Internet by the California Secretary of State's office in accordance with the law.

Some small groups in the past had been allowed to secretly collect money if their members and donors faced threats for their association.
