I know that I posted about this the other day, and I know it’s a long shot, but I wanted to post some additional press coverage on the bill that has been introduced to block the marriage amendment from making it to the ballot this November in Minnesota.
It’s appalling that we would try to do this kind of constitutional amendment… It’s not in step with most of Minnesota. It’s a lot of time, energy and money that’s being wasted on something that will hopefully fail anyway.
Karen Clark, DFL-Minneapolis
Yesterday, January 13, Representative Karen Clark (DFL) introduced a bill in the Minnesota House to remove the marriage amendment from the 2012 ballot.
Unfortunately, I don’t see the amendment being removed from the ballot due to the fact that there hasn’t been a significant change in the population of those who voted to put the measure on the ballot in the first place. Regardless, it’s a very welcome message from Clark and Minnesota to say: We stand for fairness.
