Meet Stephen Pidgeon, Sponsor Of Washington’s Anti-Gay Marriage Initiative
SUMMARY: It’s been less than a month since Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire (D) signed her state’s marriage equality bill, but a number of anti-gay efforts to repeal the law are already underway. One such effort – Initiative 1192 – was filed in January by attorney Stephen Pidgeon (R), who is also a candidate for State Attorney General. Long before becoming the spokesman for Initiative 1192, Pidgeon made a name for himself peddling extreme right-wing conspiracy theories, ranging from “birther” theories about President Obama's eligibility for office to accusations that Obama is the anti-Christ.
