UPDATE (6PM 10/11/11): It’s official. Equality California has announced that opponents of the FAIR Education Act have failed to get enough signatures to bring the LGBT-inclusive law to a public vote.

What an encouraging sign—perhaps Americans aren’t as ready to buy into hateful lies as we thought.


StopSB48.com, the California anti-gay group deceptively collecting signatures in hopes of overturning the FAIR Education Act just sent out an e-mail blast saying, “it is doubtful we will get the number of signatures we need to qualify.” They say that “the last several deliveries of mail have not been what was expected and a large number of petitions have been pulled out because of errors” and add, “From all appearances, we would need a miracle to qualify this referendum.” But We’ll will restrain our laughter and celebration until the news becomes official.
