PRESSURE MOUNTS ON SPEAKER MINNIS

On Saturday, more than 20 BRO volunteers hit the pavement and knocked on doors in Speaker of the House Karen Minnis' district and found that even in her very neighborhood, a clear majority believe that civil unions and antidiscrimination deserve a public debate and vote.

This week a petition signed by those constituents will be delivered to the Speaker's office along with more than 700 "While You Were Out Messages" collected at last week's rally on the capitol steps calling on her to honor democracy and bring these issues to a public debate and vote.

How will the speaker respond? We can't say for sure, but if she continues to resort to extreme measures to stifle public debate and consideration of these issues she will do so in willful defiance of members of the legislature, the Governor, a majority off Oregonians and her own constituents who are calling on her to do the right thing.
