Arnold in the hot seat: calls for meeting with gay leaders
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Wednesday for a meeting with leaders of California’s gay community, angry over his threatened veto of legislation to allow same-sex marriage.
The meeting will take place in the governor’s Sacramento office next Wednesday. It will include Equality California executive director Geoff Kors and two other members of the EQCA board. Also taking part will be senior staffers for the governor. The meeting will be chaired by the governor’s chief of staff, but Schwarzenegger has not committed to be there himself.
…EQCA spokesperson Eddie Gutierrez told 365Gay.com that its pressure tactics are have an effect. “The wisdom of our message is working, and our ‘12 Days of Equality’ project to educate the Governor about our families is certainly on the right path toward full equality,” Gutierrez said.
