Court Won't Protect Petitioner IDs

Item: Court refuses to keep petitioner IDs private/Spokesman-Review

More Info: The Supreme Court says people who signed a petition to repeal Washington state’s gay rights law do not have the right to keep their names secret from the public. The high court on Thursday ruled against Protect Marriage Washington, which organized a petition drive for a public vote to repeal the state’s “everything-but-marriage” gay rights law. Petition signers wanted to hide their names because of worries of intimidation.

Question: Do you agree with this decision?
