Alaska, USA: Lawmakers Apologize for Laughing at Civil Unions Question

Written by scott on February 18th, 2013

Alaska Gay Rights BillRemember those GOP lawmakers who laughed when a reporter asked a question about civil unions in the state? Well, here’s the classic non-apology apology. LGBTQ Nation reports:

[House Speaker Mike] Chenault said it is clear “from the totality of the response and circumstances the laughter was in reaction to which legislator had to field the difficult question, and did not go to the merits of the issue. Regardless, laughter was not appropriate and for that we sincerely apologize.”

So does that mean they’ll now allow a vote on it? Don’t hold your breath.
