The Chino Hills Five

Friday, August 15th, 2008


Our friends over at Calitics.com reported an interesting story on their web site recently about the curious connection between five Chino Hills donors to Yes On Proposition 8 and the 5.6 magnitude earthquake that followed the very next day. 


“Some funny stuff from the Prop 8 Donor roll. For months there haven’t been any donations from Chino Hills, and then on July 24, there were 3 donations of $5,000+.  Then on July 28, 2 more $5K+ donations.  Guess what else happened the next day? Yup, an earthquake centered in Chino Hills.  If you follow your typical right-wing logic, isn’t this the deities being enraged with Prop 8?”
