I’m not sure why this didn’t get more news coverage this past week, but I just learned that our hopes for this mean-spirited amendment to be removed from the ballot this November are no more. This past Wednesday, Mary Jo McGuire issued a statement that the repeal had been rejected.
You may remember that in January, I posted an article when the bill to repeal the amendment was proposed. We knew that there was little hope for the repeal to happen, but with the events of the past two weeks around this country, maybe there was a chance. Sadly, that chance is no more.
So, we’ll just have to take to the polls this NOvember and show the nation that Minnesotans stand for fairness and equality – and history will remember us for our vote.
