"Gay Friendly Abercrombie Wins in Hawai'i"..something else to be grateful for!
"Gay-friendly former Rep. Neil Abercrombie has won Hawaii's gubernatorial race over GOP candidate Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona, who infamously rallied with the red-shirted Christianists during the battle for civil unions. That fight was won in the state legislature, but outgoing (closet case) Gov. Linda Lingle sided with hate and vetoed the bill. While in Congress, Abercrombie earned a 100% rating from the Human Rights Campaign, meaning we now have a real advocate in governor's seat in Hawaii. Now we'll have to see if Hawaii's legislature is willing to go through that incredibly ugly battle one more time."

I hadn't thought of that ugly thing that lingle did until I read this blog~! Now maybe we can have Civil Unions in Hawai'i!~

The mouth breathers didn't win thanks to Neil Abercrombie, Brain Schatz, and all the people who helped elect them including our wonderful President Obama! Alo-HA! B-) :grouphug: :loveya:
