The effort to overturn California's FAIR Act, which mandates the teaching of LGBT history and leaders in public schools, is ramping up -- and conservatives are turning to duplicitous means to get their way.

JoeMyGod obtained video of a gay man in San Diego County who came upon a booth featurning information on Elizabeth Smart, who was abducted as a child. The information booth insinuates that people signing their petition are advocating support for increased penalties against child molesters -- they're actually signing a petition to get the FAIR Act, or SB48, overturned at the ballot. Watch the video below.

The group behind the booth and the effort to overturn SB48 has a website that claims the legislation goes too far. It prominently features the image of a heterosexual couple with gleeful children on their shoulders.
