This week, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill which would have made Milk's birthday a state-wide "day of significance."
Milk was the United States first openly gay man to hold a public office and was murdered, along with San Francisco mayor George Mascone, in 1978. Conservative groups pressured the governor to employ his veto power.
Schwarzenegger said he respected the intent of the bill, but "contributions should continue to be recognized at the local level."
This shock you how? Please everyone knew that sorry SOB wasn't going to sign it in to law. I remember the rumors about Arnold being gay and having a sugar daddy in the USA when he first came to the States. I'm just so glad that he isn't a natural born citizen, and because of this he can never be President of the USA. Then again there is this: Schwarzenegger is shown smoking a marijuana joint after winning Mr. Olympia in the 1975 documentary film Pumping Iron. In October 2007, Schwarzenegger defended his actions with the claim that, "[Cannabis] is not a drug. It's a leaf." Yet if there was a bill to legalize Cannabis, i bet he would veto it too.
