Well, it was to be expected. Making good on his promise, Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons — who’s too good for President Obama — spent Memorial Day vetoing a bill that would have granted same-sex domestic partners many of the same rights as straight married folks. Not because he hates gay people, of course, but because voters amended the Nevada Constitution to limit marriage to male-female relationships, and this bill would have violated that law. “Only the voters should have the right to undo or amend constitutional mandates,” says Gibbons.
