California Governor Arnold Schwarzeneggar issued a statement saying that Californians "should not be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation" and then proceeded to discriminate against Californians because of their sexual orientation.
He vetoed a bill that would have ended marriage discrimination against same-sex couples. As Geoff Kors, executive director of Equality California, points out the veto was "hypocrisy at its worst."
From the San Francisco Chronicle:
"We find it shocking for the governor to say he opposes discrimination based on sexual orientation and then veto a bill that would have ended discrimination based on sexual orientation," Kors said.
This is the second time that a marriage equality bill has passed the state legislature only to be vetoed by Schwarzeneggar. The first time was in 2005.
The state supreme court is expected to rule next year whether the state's ban on marriages for same-sex couples violates the state's constitution.
