Sign Petition to Thank KY Auditor Adam Edelen for Leadership on Marriage Equality

An historic week for equality in my old (conservative) Kentucky home…

Despite the fact that a recently released 2012 poll showed that support for marriage equality among Kentucky voters dramatically trailed the national average at an embarrassing 33% approval clip (although, I imagine that has ticked higher in the intervening few months), leading statewide elected officials are courageously coming forward to endorse marriage equality.

Early yesterday LEO Weekly magazine’s Joe Sonka broke the news that Kentucky’s Lt. Governor, Jerry Abramson, became the first active statewide official to endorse marriage equality.

Within a few hours, state Auditor Adam Edelen bravely took the plunge as well.  Edelen declared his support for marriage equality because:

“I believe equal protection of the law and equality of opportunity are central to the American experiment and they ought to apply to every American.”

(And let’s give Joe Sonka some mad props for his simple, but groundbreaking questioning.  Tweet at the dirty liberal columnist: @JoeSonka)

But most of all, please join me in expressing our support and gratitude to Auditor Adam Edelen for his courageous public statement by signing on to this petition below:

Thanks Auditor Edelen for Supporting Marriage Equality!
