…if by visionary, you mean a bigot.
Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker followed through Monday on his promised veto of a measure aimed at extending domestic partner benefits to county employees.
But why Scott?
He said it made no financial sense to even study the benefit’s cost at a time of such difficult finances for the county.
So, let me get this straight. A time of financial difficulty is reason enough to deprive individuals of equal rights? That logic is ironclad.
It is amazing the arguments people are coming up with to try to justify their bigoted views toward same-sex couples, but this one is on a whole new level. This makes it look like Walker may actually be opposed to civil unions as well. I guess that wouldn’t be especially surprising, but it would be especially indefensible.
A leader that will help us “Believe in Wisconsin Again” indeed.
