Neither the legislature nor the electorate voted the law out of existence, so it wasn't repealed. Gov. Schwarzenegger and then-Attorney General Jerry Brown immediately disavowed Proposition 8 and refused to defend it in court; that didn't change the fact that the majority of Californians who went to the polls voted for it. I guess it's an uncomfortable truth that, despite the momentum it's been gaining in recent years, very few states have allowed SSM through popular vote. But why bother denying it?
