WASHINTON: Referendum 71 Names Now Online In Searchable Database

Dominic Holden reports at Slog:

After years in federal courts and months of transcription, WhoSigned.Org went live this afternoon with a searchable database that includes the names and addresses of people who signed Referendum 71 in 2009. The referendum petition, circulated by anti-gay activists with the group Protect Marriage Washington, was an attempt to overturn Washington State’s domestic partnership law that granted same-sex couples the same state rights as marriage.

Longtime JMG readers may recall that anti-gay hate groups fought this disclosure all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
