Hawaiian Governor Leaves Civil Unions Up to The Voting Booth

Republican governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, decided to veto the bill to legalize same-sex civil unions: She backed the decision by saying, "This is a decision that should not be made by one person sitting in her office or by members of the Majority Party behind closed doors in a legislative caucus, but by all the people of Hawaii behind the curtain of the voting booth."

Oh, thank, you, Linda! Allowing bigots to hide behind voting curtains in order to deny rights to a group of people that they view as second class citizens - if they view us as anything at all - sounds spectacular and noble...except, not at all.
