Ken Garff Automotive Boycott Ends

Gay-rights group drops boycott against Garff

Bruce Bastian helped negotiate a deal.

A California gay-rights group announced Friday it is formally ending a boycott of one of Utah’s most high-profile car dealerships.

Californians Against Hate had called for a boycott of Ken Garff Automotive Group’s 53 dealerships in six states in retaliation for a $100,000 donation made by Garff family matriarch Katharine Garff in support of Proposition 8, California’s same-sex marriage ban, part of a total of $3.8 million donated for and against Prop 8 by Utahns.

The same-sex-marriage ban is now being challenged in Calfornia Supreme Court.
Fred Karger, director of Californians Against Hate, said Friday the two-week boycott of Ken Garff Automotive Group was being called off immediately, following a series of meetings that included face-to-face discussions between company principals John and Robert Garff and Utah philanthropist Bruce Bastian, a leading gay-rights advocate.

“We’re just ecstatic,” said Karger, who said his group was moving swiftly to take down a Web site and other Internet presences associated with the boycott. “It’s a wonderful situation … a happy ending.”

Said Bastian: “We were able to discuss this openly and honestly with the Garffs and reach an understanding. I think they understand now why this was upsetting and hurtful to many people.”
The former Word Perfect executive said, among other steps, the Garff company would be formally adopting “a non-discriminatory company policy, even though they are pretty much there already.”
Bastian declined to outline any other conditions of the settlement.

John Garff, the company’s CEO, has insisted that his mother’s $100,000 donation was a personal gesture and in no way reflected the company’s political stance.

He declined to comment further Friday, except to say, “I believe we all came away from those meetings with a greater level of mutual respect and understanding.”

Statements on End of Ken Garff Automotive Group Boycott

Fred Karger, Founder, Californians Against Hate

“Two weeks ago, we called for a boycott of Ken Garff Automotive Group at a Salt Lake City news conference. A reporter there asked me if I would be willing to meet with John Garff, CEO of the company. A few hours later, I was in his office. We had a wide ranging and very productive 2 hour meeting.

John Garff and his father, Robert Garff, later met with Utah philanthropist and leader in the national LGBT community, Bruce Bastian. The purpose of that meeting was to share perspectives and to discuss a variety of issues in an effort to find mutual respect and understanding. As a result of this meeting, I am pleased to announce that Californians Against Hate will immediately end its boycott of the Ken Garff Automotive Group.”

Bruce Bastian, LGBT Philanthropist

“Last Friday, I met with Robert and John Garff. I believe that both Robert and John left the meeting with a better understanding of my work, the LGBT community, and the emotional significance of the passing of Proposition 8 to our community. I believe the Garff family now fully understands how sensitive and important this issue is to our community and to their friends and neighbors.

As Utah progresses towards an era of equality for all families, I am extremely grateful to the Garff family for being willing to listen to the community in which they reside and do business. I look forward to working together towards a better future for all.”

John Garff, CEO, Ken Garff Automotive Group

“In response to the Ken Garff Automotive Group boycott that was called for by Californians Against Hate, I met with Fred Karger, its founder. My father, Robert, and I subsequently met with Bruce Bastian, a national LGBT philanthropist with local ties to Utah. I believe we all came away from those meetings with a greater level of mutual respect and understanding.”

Mormongate: Public’s Help Sought

huffington_post:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/fred-karger/mormongate-publics-help-s_b_167713.html

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) finally turned in a very late Major Donor campaign report on its Prop 8 spending to the California Secretary of State two weeks ago. According to their filing, the Mormon Church spent $190,000 on behalf of the Yes on Prop 8 campaign to end gay marriage in California. This filing was a good beginning, but there is no telling how much they really spent. According to their report, nearly all of their spending took place during the last week of the campaign.

The First Presidency of the Mormon Church, Thomas Monson announced their active participation back on June 29th and that’s when the Mormon Prop 8 Campaign went into full swing. They raised upwards of $30 million from their members, ran all the Yes on 8 advertising, set up the biggest door-to-door statewide voter outreach effort that California may have ever seen, ran phone banks in California and several other states, created an elaborate web site with 13 very slick commercials and videos, bussed in thousands of people from Utah and sent out lots of direct mail.

The Church finally reported spending $190,000 in non-monetary contributions when it filed its very late financial disclosure report on January 30, 2009 — 3 months after election day.
We know that all of this activity did not take place just during the last seven days of the campaign. There appears to be lots of financial information missing on the report that the Mormon Church belatedly filed.

Where is the money that they spent during the summer and early fall?
They only reported spending $1,100 in September? Much of even what they reported is still very late. And a Church spokesperson even told the Salt Lake Tribune just last week that the $96,000 in staff salaries they reported for November 4, 2008 really covered Church salaries going all the way back to August 2008. It sure is not reported that way.
It appears to us that there is a cover-up. Mormon Church leaders have not told the whole story of their massive financial involvement on behalf of Californian’s Prop 8. That is way we are calling this Mormongate.

The point of campaign finance reporting laws is for the voters to have all the information on who gave how much before they vote. The Mormon Church clearly tried to hide its financial participation until well after all the votes were cast.
We Need Your Help.

If you have any information on Mormon Church spending anywhere in the country that occurred during the summer and fall leading up to the November 4th election, please let us know.

We have set up a toll free tip line and email address for people to contact us with any tips on what campaign activities the Mormon Church conducted that might not have been included in their report to the California Secretary of State.

Toll Free Tip Line: 800-495-9356
Tip email address: tips@mormongate.com

If you know of phone banks set up at Mormon Churches, mailers sent out, meetings held or any other information regarding the Church’s spending on Prop 8, please let us know. Any information that you want to pass along with be kept strictly confidential and will be used to file a second complaint with the California Fair Political Practices Commission. The FPPC is in the middle of an active investigation of the Mormon Church right now. Californians Against Hate filed its first complaint on November 13, 2008 which led to their investigation.
All we ask for is transparency. We hope that the Mormon Church will comply with the California election law and tell us exactly how much money they spent to take away the rights of millions of Californians.

President Clinton Supports Repeal of Proposition 8

SAN DIEGO, CA – In a letter addressed to UNITE HERE Local 30 President Brigette Browning, President Clinton’s Chief of Staff, Laura A. Graham said, “He [Clinton] still opposes it [Prop 8] and hopes that it can be reversed.

The news was first reported on the highly regarded LGBT Blog Towleroad late Monday. The letter stated, “that he not only was a big opponent of California’s Proposition 8, but now supports its reversal.”

The letter dated February 13, 2009, closes with a second and even stronger endorsement, “As I said, he will continue his opposition to Proposition 8 and support its repeal.”

“This has got to be unprecedented,” said Fred Karger, Founder of Californians Against Hate. “A former President of the United States asking a state Supreme Court or the voters to reverse a ballot proposition. What an ally! Thank you President Clinton.”

The California Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Prop 8 in a little over two weeks on March 5th in San Francisco. The Court will then issue its decision within 90 days.

“We were very disappointed that President Clinton crossed the picket line on Sunday in San Diego and spoke to the International Franchisee Association, but we are sure happy now,” added Karger.

Californians Against Hate and UNITE HERE launched the boycott of Doug Manchester’s San Diego hotels on July 18, 2008 after he gave $125,000 in early money to the Yes on 8 campaign. Manchester owns the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel where Clinton spoke. To read about the boycott go to: http://www.boycottmanchesterhotels.com/

Labor and LGBT leaders took out a banner ad last Thursday in the New York Daily News that included an open letter to President Clinton asking him to move his speech to a different hotel and not to cross the picket line at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.

In her letter, Ms Graham went on to say, “We made several attempts to change the venue. Unfortunately, the hosting organization [International Franchisee Association] responded that they were unable to do so, and President Clinton believes he should honor his contractual obligation.”

To view President Clinton’s letter in its entirety, click on the Towleroad link: http://www.towleroad.com/2009/02/clinton-regrets.html then scroll down to the end of the story to see the letter.

“It’s like Christmas in February,” concluded Karger. “We are so glad that President Clinton supports Prop 8’s repeal. It’s incredible news.”

The Salt Lake City Report

NEWS RELEASE February 16, 2009 Contact: Fred Karger 619-592-2008

The Salt Lake City Report

Here is what Fred Karger, Founder of Californians Against Hate announced at his News Conference on Wednesday, February 11th.

Take a look at the graph below. It breaks down the spending report by week that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) turned in to the California Secretary of State on January 30, 2009. According to their campaign report, nearly all of their spending occurred during the last week of the Proposition 8 campaign.

The First Presidency of the Mormon Church, Thomas Monson announced their active participation back on June 29, 2008, and that’s when the Mormon Prop 8 Campaign went into full swing. They raised upwards of $30 million from their members, ran all the Yes on 8 advertising, and set up the biggest door-to-door statewide voter outreach effort that California may have ever seen. They also ran phone banks in California and several other states, created an elaborate web site www.preservingmarriage.org with 13 very slick commercials and videos, bussed in thousands of people from Utah and sent out lots of direct mail.

The Church finally reported spending $190,000 in non-monetary contributions when it filed its very
late financial disclosure report on January 30, 2009 – 3 months after the election date of November 4, 2008. We know that all of their activity did not take place just during the last 7 days of the campaign. There appear to be lots of financial information missing on the report that the Mormon Church belatedly filed.

Where is the money that they spent during the summer and early fall? They only reported spending $1,100 in September? Much of even what they reported is still very late. And a Church spokesperson even told the Salt Lake Tribune just last week that the $96,000 in staff salaries they reported for November 4, 2008 really covers Church employees salaries going all the way back to August 2008. It sure is not reported that way.

Take a look at the graph and judge for yourself. It appears to us that there is a cover-up, and that the Mormon Church has not told the whole story of their massive financial involvement on behalf of Californian’s Prop 8. That is why we are calling this Mormongate.

The point of campaign finance reporting laws is so the voters have all the information on who gave how much and when to an election before we vote. The Mormon Church clearly tried to hide their financial participation until well after the votes were cast.


We Need Your Help


If you have any information on Mormon Church spending anywhere in the country that occurred during the summer and fall leading up to the November 4th election, please let us know.

We have set up a toll-free TIP LINE and email address for people to contact us with any tips on what campaign activities the Mormon Church conducted that might not have been included in their report to the California Secretary of State.

Ken Garff Automotive Group Boycott

Last Wednesday, we launched a boycott of Ken Garff Automotive Group because or Mrs. Garff’s $100,000 contribution to the Yes on 8 campaign one week before the election. At the Salt Lake press conference the request was made for Fred Karger to meet with Ken Garff Automobile Group President John Garff to try and mediate the situation. After a two-hour meeting both sides agreed to work on a proposed agreement which would potentially end the boycott. That is in the works and when there are any developments, we will let you know.

President Clinton and the Manchester

Hotels Boycott in San Diego

When President Clinton went to speak to the International Franchisee Association Convention yesterday in San Diego, he was greeted by hundreds of protesters. He crossed the picket line at the Manchester Grand Hyatt which has been under a national boycott since July 18, 2008 when Californians Against Hate and UNITE HERE Local 30 led the effort against hotel owner Doug Manchester. Manchester gave $125,000 in early seed money to qualify California’s Proposition 8 for the ballot.

We along with 7 other Labor and LGBT leaders took out an ad in the New York Daily News online last week with an open letter to President Clinton asking him to move his speech to another location. When this request was not honored, we took to the streets.

A huge thank-you goes out to all who helped organize this highly successful effort. Everyone at UNITE HERE Local 30; President Bridgett Browning, Political Director Dan Rottenstreich, Rick Jacobs and everyone at the Courage Campaign who did so much and got tens of thousands of petitions signed; San Diego City Councilmember Todd Gloria; Cleve Jones, Founder, NAMES Project/AIDS Memorial Quilt; Nicole Murray-Ramirez, board member, National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce; Ron deHarte, executive director, San Diego Pride; and Lorena Gonazalez, secretary-treasurer, San Diego Labor Council.

Help Fine the Missing Mormon Money / Boycott Ken Garff Automotive

Public’s Help Sought in Uncovering Mormon Church Prop 8 Money
Ken Garff Automotive Boycott to be Announced

Wednesday News Conference Set

SALT LAKE CITY, UT — Fred Karger, founder of Californians Against Hate will hold a news conference to ask the for the public’s help in determining if there was significantly more money spent by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in its monumental effort to pass California’s Proposition 8 that has not been reported.

The News Conference will be held at 12:00 noon, Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at the Marriott Salt Lake Downtown Hotel – Deer Valley 2 Room, 75 South West Temple, Salt Lake City 84101 (801)531-0800

Karger filed a sworn complaint against the Mormon Church on November 13, 2008 with the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) contending that the Church had not filed the necessary campaign reports for all the money it spent on the successful Proposition 8. Up until Election Day November 4th, the Mormon Church had reported only spending $2078.00 on all of its involvement on Prop 8. Eight days later the FPPC announced that it would conduct a full investigation into those charges.

Don Eaton, a Mormon Church spokesman, told KGO Television (ABC – San Francisco) in November, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints put zero money in this [the passage of Prop. 8].”

Another Church spokesman, Scott Trotter, said in November that the allegations are “false,” and the complaint has “many errors and misstatements.” They said that the Church worked closely with its California political attorneys to comply with the law, and that it did not need to file anything further.

On January 20, 2009, the Mormon Church filed a Major Donor Report with the California Secretary of State’s Office admitting that it spent nearly $190,000 on behalf of Prop 8. All of that spending came in the last month of the election with half of it on Election Day itself.

Karger is traveling over from California to seek the public’s help in the investigation. A web site, email and phone line will be announced at the News Conference for people who have information on the Mormon Church’s involvement over the summer months and into the fall. Those with information will be asked to call or email anonymous tips into his office. A special TIPS line will be set up for this purpose. Any information gathered will be passed along to California authorities.

Californians Against Hate will also announce a national boycott of all 40 of Ken Garff’s Automotive Group owned car dealerships in 4 states. Katharine Garff, the wife CEO and Board Chairman Robert Garff contributed $100,000 to the Yes on 8 campaign.

www.BoycottKenGarffAutomotive.com

We feel that this huge contribution to take away marriage rights in California by the Garff family warrants a full boycott. The contribution was given very late — on October 29, 2008 — and was disclosed in the recently released campaign report.

Californians Against Hate has called for three previous boycotts of major funders to Yes on Prop 8. The first was back on July 18, 2008 against the hotels owned by Doug Manchester (Manchester Grand Hyatt and the Grand del Mar Hotels) both in San Diego, CA) who gave $125,000 to Yes on 8. The next boycott was called against Bolthouse Farms of Bakersfield, CA whose founder gave $100,000 to Prop 8, but was settled 3 weeks later. And the most recent boycott began on November 19, 2008 against A-1 Self Storage , whose owner Terry Caster and his family gave $693,000 to Yes on 8.
