Campaign Opposed to Marriage Amendment Uses Social Media to Stalk Marriage Amendment Supporters
Minnesotans United for All Families (MUFAF), the coalition opposed to the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment, is stalking supporters of the Amendment on Facebook.
"MUFAF is encouraging its own supporters to use a new Facebook tool, the 'kNOw tool,' to stalk Minnesotans who plan to vote YES on the Marriage Amendment," said Autumn Leva, Spokesperson for Minnesota for Marriage. "Once the 'kNOw tool' identifies a potential Amendment supporter on Facebook, this individual is targeted for 'conversation' in an attempt to convince him or her that the definition of marriage need not be protected."
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio was targeted for this harrassment on Facebook as he celebrated and announced his 30th Wedding Anniversary.
"For those who support the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment, this is simple harassment," continued Leva. "This latest move by MUFAF also demonstrates the type of behavior Minnesotans will see more of if marriage is ever redefined. The majority of Minnesotans who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman will be forced into government-sanctioned silence and given no room to exercise their right to act on their beliefs."
