Unicorns, Bigfoot, Good Republicans and Other Myths

From Queer Channel Media:

The chief sponsor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act has initiated a legislative procedure known as a discharge petition to compel House leadership to bring up for a vote a version of the bill with a narrowed religious exemption, the Washington Blade has learned.


Supporters of ENDA face uphill battle in attempting to pass ENDA by initiating a discharge petition. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), an original co-sponsor of ENDA [and mother of a female-to-male transsexual, ed.], has already told the Blade she wouldn’t sign the petition, saying through a spokesperson it’s a “partisan political tool.” No Republican co-sponsor has agreed to signing a discharge petition for ENDA.

Meaning, of course, that perhaps I should have entitled this post: “Unicorns, Bigfoot, Discharge Petitions, Good Republicans and Other Myths.”

My mistake.

I apologize for the under-inclusiveness.
