Bravo Know Thy Neighbor!

I haven't really talked about the nasty bills that Massresistance/Article 8/Brian Camenker submitted to the legislature for approval. I didn't discuss it because I really didn't think it was even worth the time since it had no chance of passing (Brian and Amy are in HEAVY denial if they think they were ever going to get anything passed in Massachusetts again!). But the latest news on their "bills" are just too tempting to pass up.

Massresistance/Brian Camenker claimed on their website that they got whopping 25 legislators to "co-sponsor" their Parents Rights Bill S321. However, Know Thy Neighbor did a little poking around Beacon Hill and found out that some of the "co-sponsors" never even signed on:

KnowThyNeighbor had a lengthy conversation with Senator Richard Tisei, The Senate Minority Leader, this morning and the Senator is stating that for the record, he did not request that his name be added as a co-sponsor of this bill and that his record on LGBT rights speaks for itself. Senator Hedlund's aide, Ted Langill, confirmed that they have no email or phone record that confirmed Tisei's request for inclusion in the bill that would require a parental permission slip for teachers to use the words "homosexual, lesbian, transgender" or to discuss the current equal marriage fight or acknowledge the existence of families being headed by same-sex couples. Senator Tisei also confirmed to KnowThyNeighbor that Rep. Fallon, Senator Tarr and Rep. Donato also found their names erroneously on Bill S321.

Know Thy Neighbor is now reporting that 11 legislators have retracted their sponsorship of Bill S321. In the words of Massresistance:

Your calls & emails were VERY effective!
Thanks go out to Know Thy Neighbor for continuously pointing out the fraud and deceit that the extreme right tries to pull over the citizens of Massachusetts.

Don't forget that the Massachusetts Constitutional Convention is this week on June 14th.

I you and all your readers understand how important it is to make a personal appearance at the State House on Thursday. Thanks for mentioning that too. ;)

On a somewhat related note, the long anticpated Extended Romney Deception Report has been "published" ? Brian has placed a link on the MassResistance site saying that the report has been published, but if you click the link, you're informed that it will be updated "soon". How much longer before this new juicy information is available Brian?

Also, the parade must have been way too much for poor Brian and his sidekick Amy will take them *4* days to post their findings on what took place.

Could Brian Camenker and Amy Contrada POSSIBLY be more lame than they already are?! They post outright LIES about support for "their" bills, state they'll have reports on their website "soon" they have ANY credibility at all?

How about their innovative use of pictures from the Dyke March labeled as being from the Pride Parade?

I'm sure Amy will spend those 4 days scouring local gay sites looking for photos of "horrors" to steal for the MassResistance site.
