Californians Against Hate founder Fred Karger meets with John Garff, president of Salt Lake City-based Ken Garff Automotive Group, against which CAH has called a boycott: “The California group has called for a boycott of 53 Garff dealerships across six states, including California and Utah, in retaliation for a $100,000 campaign donation made by Katharine Garff, matriarch of the Garff family, in support of Proposition 8, last year’s successful initiative to ban same-sex marriage.
