White House Applauds AZ Veto

Just a little more fuel for the outrage bonfire. Via The Hill:

The White House said Friday it supports Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s decision to veto a bill that would have allowed businesses to deny service to gay and lesbian customers. “The president does believe that Gov. Brewer did the right thing by vetoing this bill,” Carney said. On Wednesday, Brewer announced that she would veto the bill, which narrowly passed the state legislature. “I call them as I see them, despite the cheers or the boos from the crowd,” Brewer said in a statement, adding the legislation “could result in unintended and negative consequences.”
