OHIO/CINNKY: Equal Housing and Employment Act -- UPDATE

This is an email I sent out to the "I Support the Equal Housing and Employment Act" Facebook group, so I thought it only right that I update all of you...

Just a quick update:

1) Do What's Right, Ohio! ( has finally gotten off it's ass and just started a group here on Facebook... well, not "just started," but whatev's. It's slightly larger than ours and here it is:
2) Per that same organization, it appears that, since the House and Senate are on recess, the bill will flounder until the houses reconvene in November. At least, that's what I gather from their websites.

So, make sure you're emailing and calling! I'm about to put in a new email, because I never heard back from either Driehaus or Kearney, and I'll post my email along with their response when I get it!

Thanks to everyone!!!

Long story short: ain't jack shit happening. And, considering at least two of the members of the subcommittee we're watching (read updates here and here) are running for higher office, this is probably good for everyone involved.

IE: The vote is after the election, so those people who are for it but afraid to make a statement when they're moving up the political ladder will be safe from "calling themselves out" as pro-gay rights.

Blah blah blah.

So here's to a quiet summer...
