Kentucky Governor Voids Gay Measure
FRANKFORT, Ky., April 11 — Gov. Ernie Fletcher signed an executive order on Tuesday removing language from the state's affirmative action plan specifically protecting gay men and lesbians from discrimination.
Administration officials said the move was a way to increase the number of blacks and women in state government. Mr. Fletcher, a Republican, said in a statement that the order "equalizes the playing field" for people seeking state jobs.
Because blacks and women are constantly having their jobs stolen from them by all of the gays and lesbians just clamoring for positions in the Kentucky state government? Sure. Totally believable. Thank you Ernie for protecting my rights.
