Bigotry Wins: Hawaii Gov. Lingle Vetoes Civil Unions from Joe Jervis on Vimeo.

Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle vetoed a civil unions bill late yesterday afternoon claiming that citizens should vote on the issue. That's such a piss poor excuse it's like claiming you can't do your job until the entire states debates and vote on whether or not your boss was correct to ask you to do it. (Hat tip to Joe.My.God. for the video)
