This morning I reported that Arizona GOP state Sen. Mike Pierce has flip-flopped and is now calling for a veto of the hate bill that he voted for last week. Add two more GOP state senators to the list. Via LGBTQ Nation:
Sen. Bob Worsley says he and Sens. Adam Driggs and Steve Pierce sent a letter to Brewer Monday asking her to strike down the legislation allowing business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to refuse service to gays. Worsley says he was uncomfortable when he voted for the bill. Both he and Pierce called their votes a mistake. The legislation passed last week. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry is requesting a veto because of fears it will hurt tourism.
LGBTQ Nation points out that if these three had voted against the bill in the first place – it would have failed. (Tipped by JMG reader and Arizona resident Homer)
