Bleeding Heartland: Who Is Holding Up Civil Rights?
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Obviously Christopher Rants is the biggest impediment to extending the civil rights code to cover the GLBT community, but there isn't much we can do about him (other than send even fewer Republicans back to the state house next year). There are some legislators that need to hear from concerned Iowans about their opposition or indecision on the bill currently bottled up in the house. ... This is urgent - if anything is going to happen on this bill, it is going to happen in the next couple of days. GLBTers have been a model team players for Iowa Democrats, supporting our candidates without hesitation and with very little demanded in return. While Democrats have been successful in the minority at stopping a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, now that we are in the majority we ought to be working to make Iowa a more equal state.
