Gay activists aren’t giving up on gay marriage, and neither is Barbara Boxer!
The California Senator promised supporters yesterday that the fight is not over:
Boxer said that despite fellow Democrat Barack Obamaâ€™s historic presidential win and gains in both the U.S. House and Senate for her party, Prop. 8 â€œput a damper effectâ€ on her election night.
â€œThis is so not over,â€ Boxer said at a Wednesday press conference held jointly with California Democratic Party chairman Art Torres. â€œThe fight for equality goes on and on. The fight for a more perfect union goes on and on.â€
Boxer pointed out that all the votes still had to be counted. She also suggested the fight might go back to the courts.
â€œThere may be some inconsistencies with our law and our constitution still, so there will be legal challenges that will move forward,â€ she said.
And, hopefully, so will gay rights.
