The Agenda

“Hypocrisy at its worst”

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed yet another gay marriage bill Friday, using the same rationale he used in 2005.
“It would be wrong for the people to vote for something and for me to then overturn it,” Schwarzenegger told the Associated Press in September, in reference to California voters’ approval of Proposition 22 in 2000. “So they can send this bill down as many times as they want, I won’t do it.”
Openly gay Assemblyman Mark Leno sponsored the bill, as well as the 2005 version.
Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California, said the governor’s actions signified “hypocrisy at its worst.”
“We find it shocking for the governor to say he opposes discrimination based on sexual orientation and then veto a bill that would have ended discrimination based on sexual orientation,” Kors said.
