Looks like hate & discrimination prevail in Anchorage…
On Tuesday, supporters of gay rights in Alaska’s largest city took the issue out of the mayor’s hands — but the end result appeared likely to be the same. In a citywide ballot measure, voters were overwhelmingly rejecting language, known as Proposition 5, that would have added protections for people regardless of “sexual orientation or transgender identity” to the city’s civil rights laws.
with 94 percent of the vote believed to be counted late Tuesday in Anchorage, the measure was failing 58 percent to 42, defying polls showing it would succeed.
