Ed Thompson Speaks Out for Gay Rights in Wisconsin

Former Libertarian candidate for Governor, Ed Thompson predicts Wisconsin will turn down a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and civil unions. I hope he is right.
Thompson, who is the brother of former [Republican] Governor Tommy Thompson, says the amendment is part of the — quote — "incredible hatred and bias that is ruining our country."

The Tomah City Council member and restaurant owner spoke last night at an award banquet for gay rights activists.
Update: More coverage.
Another Update:Ed's prediction may come true.
