With New Jersey so close to marriage equality, somebody had to rain on the parade. And that someone is Mr. Christie.
Gov Chris Christie called today for a voter referendum on the fall ballot over the issue of legalizing gay marriage.Christie doesn't want officials to decided on marriage equality, he wants the people to decide. However, he will veto the bill if it comes to him. If the people want this, why would he deny the community? I don't get this, Chris Christie!
If successful, the referendum would change the state Constitution. He urged Republicans in the Legislature to put the matter to voters. But if a bill made it to his desk, Christie said he would veto it.
