Agreed NonLemming: there has been much debate & controversey concerning the voting results in both states. In Columbus, OH; it is suspected many votes were not registered as it is one of the most liberal cities in the state. Likewise, other major cities also opposed the amendment. Luckily, in Cincinnati, voters were able to overturn the anti-gay amendment within city limits. I have to agree both gov. admin.'s in both states are corrupt, as you said as in 2000 & 2004 elections proved.
Zerbie: Yes, luckily Equality Ohio is a large organization, and hopefully encourage people to fight against continued anti-LGBT measures. Good luck in preventing the anti-gay laws in your state too. Such hope can be found from history: before the Civil War, a law was passed that viewed African Americans as 3/5 of a person in counting the population in electing state representatives. Fortunantly, the Gettysburg Address a few years later, and other anti-slavery laws overturned that original law.
Best wishes to everyone.
