Last Gasp, Grasp Before DP Law Starts

Oregon’s Anti-Gay Launch Final Effort

Some people just don’t know when to quit! Oregonian lawmakers voted this year to allow domestic partnerships, which go into effect on January 1, 2008. A number of anti-gay activists, however, are using the next few days to piss on the equality party.

From Edge Boston:

…Anti-gay activists are targeting the state with a federal lawsuit, alleging that signatures were illegally declared invalid on a petition to require that the civil unions law be subject to a vote during next year’s election, rather than passed by state legislators and signed into law by the governor.

The right wingers have also been publishing a series of articles meant to scare out the vote, including a piece that says gay prisoners will be given preferential treatment over straight prisoners.

You know things are bad when activists are using prisoners as their model citizens.
