We need ENDA

My letter to Rep Herseth Sandlin on ENDA tonight:

Dear Rep Herseth Sandlin,

We're hearing rumors that the ENDA vote may have been put off again -- which means the Senate may not be able to consider this important legislation until after the election.

Please do what you can to move this legislation forward -- there are people every day in South Dakota and around the nation that are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

We have a lot of important problems to solve in America and we need everyone's help, so please do what you can to get ENDA to the floor.

South Dakotans are with you this one-- the state's culture of commitment to a fair deal to everyone should make this an easy one to defend and many will appreciate your leadership on this issue if you step forward.

Please consider writing to her too -- this is important.

    Sorry, South Dakotan's are NOT with you on this ENDA law. And I hope that all three of our congress people realize this. I don't hold out much hope as regards Johnson or Herseth Sandlin on this or any ohter issues though.

  2. South Dakotan's are NOT with you

    Well, apparently at least those that don't know the proper use of an apostrophe.

    Truth be told, EqSD has solid polling data on this and you are quite mistaken. The libertarian bent of South Dakota cuts against the right sometimes too.
