USA, California: Jelly Belly Chairman Donates Thousands to Anti-Transgender Kids Campaign

Jelly belly logoHaving lost the battle on marriage equality in California, anti-gay groups have found the next target – transgender kids – and this time they’ve got a sweet new sugar daddy to help fund the campaign.

Frontiers LA reports:

Herman Rowland Sr., Chair of the Jelly Belly Candy Company, is a major contributor to the Privacy for All Students initiative campaign–led by Prop. 8 strategist Frank Schubert, who is now the political director for the National Organization for Marriage. Just as he did with the misrepresentations and scare tactics of the Prop. 8 campaign, Schubert is trying to collect enough signatures to put an initiative on the 2014 ballot to repeal the historic “School Success and Opportunity Act, ” AB 1266, authored by out Assemblymember Tom Ammiano. The transgender student law goes into effect on Jan. 1, unless the measure qualifies, which would put the law on hold.

One more thing to add to my never–ever buy list. No big loss – they’re pumped full of corn syrup anyway.

    Jelly Belly – too small too bigoted, not sweet enough for my taste. I am going to push Twizzlers.
