Maine Governor Signs Gay Marriage Bill into Law

Maine Governor John Baldacci, who had 10 days to sign or veto a gay marriage bill approved by the State of Maine’s Legislature, has reoprtedly signed the bill making Maine the newest state to protect equal rights.

Maine is now the fifth state in the uniuon to approve Gay Marriage; voters cna overturn the Governor’s decision at the ballot box, but Maine is not California.  As the locals like to say, “You can’t get there from here.”

    I think it’s time for a lobster dinner! I am very glad that Maine’s Governor has come to the (correct) conclusion that gay rights are human rights. I would certainly like to thank all of those people from Harvey Milk Stonewall Democrats (www.MilkOC.org) that followed my lead and sent Gov. Baldacci letters and emails explaining why he should sign this historic legislation. Let’s keep the ball rolling. Next stop: New York? Let’s hope so.
