AZ Gov. keeps marriage-banning thoughts to self

by Jeremy Hooper

   Speaking at an Arizona Human Rights Fund banquet dinner Saturday night, Governor Janet Napolitano disappointed some of her state's gay and lesbian activists when she didn't speak out against a proposed constitutional ban on 'mo marriage. We hear that she did however speak out about the clams orgenata being a little fishy and the mesclun greens a little bland.

Napolitano, who has voiced opposition to gay marriage in the past, took the opportunity to present the 'Governor's Award for Excellence in Human Rights Advocacy" to Bill Hardin, one of the AZ Human Rights Funds founders. After presenting the trophy to Hardin, rumor has it that she proceeded to warn him that he's not allowed to marry it, either.
