Gov. Linda Lingle Teases Hawaii’s Gays Over Civil Unions

Today Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle will inform lawmakers the civil unions bill they finally managed to pass is among the bills she might veto. That’s actually not really news, since any bill Lingle has yet to sign is, technically, on the list of bills she might veto. She has until July 6 to make up her mind; if she doesn’t sign, the bill expires, and no fake marriage for you. See what happens when Speedo Student Tim Perry leaves the state?

    I thought if she didn’t sign, it became law anyway?

  • Paschal

    @Katie: She could either sign it, veto it or let it become law without her signature. Hawai’in law requires the governor to inform legislatures of bills she might veto.

    Yeah, what’s up with the misinformation Queerty? If she doesn’t sign, it automatically becomes law.

    Queerty, what is with your attempt to work wannabe Porn Actor Tim Perry into every angle and story possible?

    The story on Hawaii’s Civil Union is pretty important for a variety of reasons. You cheapen it by Perry’s inclusion.

    BTW, what is your obsession with this guy?
