Governator Nixes Gay Marriage Again

As he'd promised he would, Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed California's same-sex marriage bill on Friday. He vetoed a similar bill in 2005. Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California, which sponsored the bill: "This will be part of his legacy. He single-handedly is standing in the way of lifting the cloud of discrimination for millions of Californians."

Schwarzenegger announced the veto at 5:30pm on Friday, in obvious hope of reducing press coverage. The state of California currently defines marriage as between a man and a woman, but the state Supreme Court will judge on the constitutionality of that law next year. Schwarzenegger said that the Supreme Court would have to overturn the man/woman law before he would sign any marriage equality bill.
