We’ll be there to greet the bus

October 25, 2010

We’re under attack in Iowa. For a year and a half Iowa has enjoyed marriage equality, based on the unanimous Iowa Supreme Court ruling of April 4, 2009. Now failed Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats is organizing an attempt to unseat the three Iowa Supreme Court judges who are up for retention in this year’s election. The lies and hatred in his campaign are frightening – as is the depth of his financial support from several national ultra conservative groups. Gay news blogger Andy Towle provides an analysis of these sources in his October 22 blog.

Beginning today, for the next four days, a bus tour featuring Rick Santorum, Maggie Gallagher, Tony Perkins, and Iowa Representative Steve King will make stops in twenty Iowa cities and pass through 45 Iowa counties to promote NO votes on the three judges.

I’m frightened by the money, the lies, and most of all the hatred. But I am not alone. A bipartisan committee calling itself Fair Courts for Us has organized Homegrown Justice events to greet the bus at each stop. If you’re an Iowan, or if you know an Iowan who would support this cause, please click on this link to the Homegrown Justice event schedule and share it.

Both halves of Adriana will be there to meet the bus when it stops in our town.
