Business owners have received threatening letters, including a San Diego business owner, from backers of California’s Proposition 8.

The letters, sent by certified mail from those trying to take away the right to marry for same sex couples, threaten to expose and publicize information about the business owners.  They demand that those who have donated to the “No on 8” campaign give a donation of a “like amount” to support the amendment, or face consequences.

"It's truly an outrageous attempt to extort people," said Geoff Kors, the executive director of Equality California.
