Prop 8 reversal movement fails
I can already imagine the headlines from the anti-equality folks: Supporters of Same Sex Marriage Can't Even Get Enough Signatures to Repeal Prop 8.
That's the simple version. The real version is a little more complicated. In fact, the major LGBT groups were not in favor of putting the issue on the ballot this fall, believing that waiting until 2012 was a better strategy for bringing marriage equality back to California. They did not even participate in the signature drive.
That many LGBT groups opposed a fall referendum will no doubt be omitted in the reporting of this story.
