Statement from Jay Inslee on marriage equality ballot title ruling
Thurston County Superior Court Judge Thomas McPhee today ruled in favor of marriage equality proponents who were challenging the biased language in a ballot title drafted by Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna.
Democratic candidate for governor Jay Inslee issued the following statement in response to today's ruling:
"I applaud the Judge's decision to remove Rob McKenna's politically charged language from the ballot title. It's unfortunate that it took a Judge to stop Rob McKenna from playing politics with marriage. Washington is a forward-thinking, fair-minded state. Granting equality to all will bring fairness to the state of Washington. I believe this is a value worth fighting for."
