Who, today, vetoed legislation that would have permitted same-sex civil unions.
Had Lingle not vetoed it, the measure would have granted gay and lesbian couples the same rights and benefits that the state provides to married couples. It also would have made Hawaii one of six states that essentially grant the rights of marriage to same-sex couples without authorizing marriage itself.
She excused herself by saying, “It would be a mistake to allow a decision of this magnitude be made by one individual or a small group of elected officials.”
Is that so?
If that were true, it would still be illegal for people to marry outside of their own ethnicity.
Governor Lingle, your fear of being a leader sickens me.
So sayeth the StickMonkey.
