Update from Hawaii
Seems like we'll never know.
The house of representatives, which had previously strongly supported the bill, refused to vote on the measure. What's worse, the vote to put off the vote on civil unions was anonymous: not one representative had to declare his or her position.
And guess what? This is an election year. Such cowardice.
How inconvenient that a vote on people's civil rights and the status of their relationships happen to interfere with politicians' need to duck and cover before an election.
