Lies on Palin’s Gay Record

Media Matters has charged several papers with watering down Sarah Palin’s sketchy record on gay rights. Nice things have said about Palin’s allowing the state to extend employment benefits to same-sex partners of state employees, but she originally vetoed the bill in December 2006. In fact, she was angry that the court forced her to enforce their ruling. “I disagree with the recent court decision, because I feel as though Alaskans spoke on this issue with its overwhelming support for a Constitutional Amendment in 1998 which defined marriage as between a man and woman. But the Supreme Court has spoken and the state will abide.” Palin remains a big fan of the 1998 anti-gay amendment and no friend to the LGBT Community.
