Three Arizona Senators Regret Voting For Gay Discrimination Bill, Urge Veto
Three state senators in Arizona have come to their senses and realized that perhaps voting in favor of segregation might've been a mistake.
Sen. Bob Worsley says he and Sens. Adam Driggs and Steve Pierce sent a letter to Brewer Monday asking her to strike down the legislation allowing business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to refuse service to gays.
Worsley says he was uncomfortable when he voted for the bill. Both he and Pierce called their votes a mistake.
The letter comes on the heels of a weekend of major protests against the bill in the state as well as national backlash from all walks of life who can't believe Arizona's thisclose to instituting a new era of Jim Crow-type laws.
