California acts against poll measure to execute gays


LOS ANGELES: California announced legal action on Wednesday (Thursday) to suppress a “reprehensible” ballot initiative to outlaw homosexuality — on pain of execution — in the famously liberal US state. The proposal — unlikely to advance, as it requires over 360,000 signatures to proceed — was submitted by lawyer Matthew McLaughlin to the California Attorney General’s office late last month. The “Sodomite Suppression Act” ballot proposes that gay people “be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.”
