California's Proposition 8 is ahead 52% to 48% with 95.4% of precincts reporting, the Los Angeles Times reports this morning. The measure to ban same-sex marriage has collected 5,163,908 votes so far, with 4,760,336 votes cast against it.

California's Proposition 8 is ahead 52% to 48% with 95.4% of precincts reporting as of Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Times reports. The measure to ban same-sex marriage has collected 5,163,908 votes so far, with 4,760,336 votes cast against it.

Though proponents of Prop. 8 declared victory earlier this morning, No on 8 campaign leaders have refused to concede, saying too many votes still need to be counted -- including as many as 3 million absentee and provisional ballots, the Associated Press reports, although the Secretary of State's Office could not confirm that amount.

Even though the No on 8 effort has not given up, the first lawsuits are already being readied. Diane Olson and Robin Tyler, the first same-sex couple to be married in Los Angeles County last June, will file suit via their lawyer Gloria Allred. The new lawsuit will contain a new and controversial legal argument as to why Prop. 8 is unconstitutional. More on that this afternoon. (The Advocate)
