WI Senator makes first attempt at correcting voter-initated wrong

by Jeremy Hooper

Sen27Wisconsin state Sen. Jon Erpenbach (pic.) has announced that he'll introduce legislation that, if passed, would alter the state's recently-passed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage so that it would no longer ban civil unions. And in addition, Erpenbach's proposed amendment would also officially ban discrimination against LGBT folks.

Our suggested name for the legislation: The Someday To Be Remembered As The First Decent Attempt At Erasing A Voter-Approved Historical Black Mark Act of 2007.


It remains to be seen if Erpenbach's idea gets anywhere in the state legislature. But even if it doesn't, his good name has already earned a mention in the section of the state's 2050 History books that will be titled: "The State Slowly Begins To Triumph Over Intolerance."
