Instead of going back over this and trying to recreate the live blog, I'll just save it for a complete post tomorrow. I'll do a separate post on Oxley's visit.
1:35 - Quotes from Ellen Andersen - past president of Stonewall Dems and former Central Committee member (and Bilerico-Indiana and Bilerico Project contributor!) - "We worked our seat on the Central Committee hard for SJR-7 We have some breathing space to talk about an LGBT rights law if Democrats win. We can work to advance our rights instead of just holding on to the rights we have. More LGBT people are employed than are married. This party gets the T part more than the average state party gets it. We talk about protections for gender identiy in the platform That's unusual for a red state or a midwestern state The platform committee - the Central Committee is on board - we need to translate that into action. We need to follow Indy's lead and pass a human rights ordinance state-wide. We gotta get the ticket elected."
1:30 - Caucus is over. I'm in the actual convention now, but I'll try to catch up my notes from the ISD caucus quickly.
12:20 - One of the most talked about issues of this caucus has been Rep Dennis Oxley's record with LGBT and women's issues as well as the state marriage amendment
Thompson has entered the room.
12:15 - Quotes from Doug Meagher - President of Stonewall Democrats - "They're talking about dragging us back to the 19th century. When my personal freedom is compromised, that's just wrong. We're enthusiastic of Jill Long-Thompson's candidacy. She's been gay friendly for a long time. Some of you may have heard that her running mate may be something of a concern. The Representative has said he voted the way his constituents wanted him to vote, but now he's the Lt Guv nominee and has to represent the entire party. He would the tie-breaker in the Senate. We want him voting the right way."
