Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I am writing to you to ask you to sign AB 43, even though I know you never will.
I need to know that you have heard from people like me who are directly afflicted; that emboldening the Opponents of Equality will cause more government-sanctioned discrimination; and that showing a lack of leadership on this issue will look pretty silly when California eventually ends domestic apartheid. Your domestic apartheid.
I fully understand that you want to “let the people decide,” and you will undoubtedly veto this bill. I just want you to know who you’re throwing under the bus when you do.
