Morning Sweep

New Jersey releases it first interim report on its civil unions law and finds that civil unions confer “second-class status” on same-sex couples. See here for Governor Corzine's reaction and here for Pam of Pam's House Blend and here for our reaction (or just look above!). In conjunction with the report, Garden State Equality unveils a website called Civil Unions Don’t Work, which includes video clips of testimony from couples before the New Jersey Civil Unions Commission describing how exactly their civil unions don't measure up to marriage.

Connecticut State Representative Jason Bartlett, a Democrat who represents the Danbury area, announces he is gay.

A House subcommittee in the Tennessee legislature kills a bill prohibiting discussions of homosexuality in public schools.

National LGBT groups have started the search process for LGBT individuals who want to serve in the next Presidential Administration (no matter who wins they say). A bit early isn't it?
