Transplants from California Hoping to Tip Election
After losing the marriage fight in California, it looks like EQCA is looking for a new view.
EQCA, one of California’s largest gay activist groups held a press conference announcing they will be diverting resources to Maine to help prop up Maine’s new anti-marriage bill. The bill was rushed through the legislature without a proper public vetting and since it’s passage, the opposition has been gathering quickly. Signatures for a “People’s Veto” were collected at breakneck speed, nearly twice as many as required, and gay activists are worried.
Equality California said that their reverse California gold rush will include sending “field operatives” to Maine.
“A victory in Maine,” said a spokesperson for Equality California, “is just as important as California and would be a sign that the gay marriage tide is turning.”
That’s what they said about California. Californians spoke loudly and the court upheld their voice. Though there have been a handful of state legislatures who flipped on marriage last spring, their brazen defiance of the people’s will won’t be forgotten. State by state as the people get their chance, their voices will be heard.
The tide HAS turned. Go Maine!
