Senator, come out, come out, wherever you are

No time to dilly over marriage equality vote

Sen. Dillard, how long must your patient constituent...me, wait for you to respond to a simple constituent request: How will you vote when the historic marriage equality measure is called in Illinois?
You need to come out of the closet....not that you're gay of course, and not that there's anything wrong with that. Its the closet of fear you are hiding in from all the homophobes in your district and your party who you possibly feel might jeopardize your chances of being governor if you "come out" for marriage equality.
Gov. Quinn says he'll sign the measure if you pass it because, as a Democrat, he is for granting marriage equality and Ist class citizenship to all Illinoisans. You see, there are no homophobes left in the Democratic Party. They all reside in your party, Senator.
I look forward to your appearance....and your decision.
Walt Zlotow
24th IL Senate District
