Call it a case of "Charlie Crist-itis"...
Congressional Candidate for District 22 Paul Renneisen, who's challenging Democratic incumbent Ron Klein in the Aug. 26 Democratic primary, has confirmed that he did indeed sign the petition to put Amendment 2, the dangerous "Marriage Protection" Amendment, on the ballot. According to the Sun-Sentinel Political Blog, Renneisen said his signature on the petition, which helped put the anti-gay proposal on Florida's November ballot, doesn't represent his views on the issue.
I did sign the petition to get it on the ballot so it can be voted down. I didn't sign a petition supporting the amendment at all. I signed a petition to put it on the ballot. There are a lot of [gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender] individuals who feel we have an opportunity in this year of change [to] defeat this.
