The Transgender Issue In Montgomery County, Maryland

There has been a lot of complaining about the fact that even though 900,000 signatures were supposedly gathered to overturn an ordinance that protected transgendered people.  For a fuller examination of this, see Holybulliesandheadlessmonsters.  What exactly is the population of Montgomery County Maryland where this ordinance is found?  In 2006, the estimate was 932,131.  And that is every single person–regardless of age.  The anti-glbt activists are claiming that 900,000 signatures were gathered.  Funny–how is that possible?  The statistics also state that 25% of that number are under 18–meaning that they cannot vote, and therefore can’t sign the petition.  That brings the total adult population to 699,098.  Hmmm.  So now MORE people than live in Montgomery County signed the petition to take away a protection?    So take a guess at how many really signed this petition?  They needed 27,615, (again, see Alvin’s Holy Bullies website) but they didn’t get that many.  Funny how some people just lie and lie and lie.  And others just swallow whatever is told to them…

What I find even more interesting is that the lawyer who reported on this–a Jordan Lorance.  Why is he interesting?  Because according to the IRS forms of the Alliance Defense Fund, Mr. Lorance borrowed $50,000 from the ADF.  What has Mr. Lorance paid back?  Absolutely nothing, because he didn’t have to.  The terms of the loan state that every year the ADF will forgive over $9,000.  Mr. Lorance is also the highest paid employee (besides the directors) at the Alliance Defense Fund.  In 2007 he made over $179,000.

    Kevin it is simple.  In Texas when we need more signatures or votes we can always count on the Cemetary vote or the deceased to sign a petition after all we know they would want to be included in our important events.  So, I guess this is proof that there is life after death.  Sounds like it is more wide spread than just being a Texas phenomina. 🙂

    900,000? No.  They collected about 30,000, not all of them were valid.

    Hey Kevin,
    Thanks for such a nice greeting!  🙂
    Hey Justin,
    Yes, I have heard of the cemetary vote!  I think that might have happened for some of these votes to get the anti-gay marriage ballot in the election.  The supporters of Prop. 8 keep saying they got 1.1 million people to sign it.  However, hundreds of thousands of those signatures were deemed ineligible, for whatever reason.  But they still got enough to get it on the ballot. But they didn\’t get 1.1 valid signatures…
    Hi No name, 
    I think I mentioned that although they claimed they got 900,000 signatures and it was rejected, in realiy they only needed 27,000 or so–and they didn\’t get that many.
    Hey Cass,
    What a good quote!
