Today Is Hawaii’s BIG Decision Day. Will Governor Linda Lingle Sign Or Veto Hawaii’s Civil Union Bill?

Today is the day that Hawaii’s Govenor Linda Lingle will announce whether she’s going to veto the Hawaii’s recently passed civil union bill or sign it into law.

Lingle marched in Monday’s July Fourth celebration parade in Kailua, but she wouldn’t tell reporters what she plans to do about civil unions…only that it has been a very difficult decision.

“I really thought about this more than I have thought about any other piece of legislation,” said Lingle. “It is a subject that has really touched the hearts and minds of everyone in Hawaii.”

Actually Lingle its about fairness, equality, and whats right. Lingle who is not running for re-election has nothing to lose if she sign’s the bill.  But if she decides to VETO something as simple as a civil unions bill may her legacy haunt as a hater and homophobe be written in the history books
