California officials are now planning to investigate whether the Mormon Church completely disclosed their role in the 'Yes on Proposition 8' campaign to ban same sex marriage.

The California Fair Political Practices Commission says it will look into whether the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" failed to report the complete value of the work it did to support the Yes on 8 campaign.

A gay rights activist filed a complaint two weeks ago. A representative from the church refused to comment on the investigation.

Last week, the state supreme court agreed to hear lawsuits that claim Proposition 8 improperly revises the state constitution.
