Lingle vetoes civil unions bill

Gov. Linda Lingle announced today that she will veto the civil unions bill, describing the measure as "marriage by another name."

Lingle said the legislative maneuvering by the House, which brought the bill to a vote on the last day of session, was wrong and that the issue is of such societal importance that it should involve all the people of Hawaii.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lingle, aiming for the Congress, has ducked this contentious issue by insisting on a public referendum. Whatever the result of the referendum, win or lose, Lingle evades the political damage. This is how leadership, crippled by timidity, deteriorates into politics.
