Group Posts Signees of Florida Anti-Gay Marriage Petition

KnowThyNeighbor has published the names of thousands of Florida residents who signed the state’s petition to place a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage on the november ballot.

611,000 signatures are required to get a measure on to the state’s ballot. Foes of same-sex marriage found themselves more than 20,000 signatures short of the goal in January, but a last minute push collected more than 92,000, more than enough to get the measure to the ballot.

KnowThyNeighbor publishes the easily searchable list of names, which are a matter of public record, so people can see for themselves who among their neighbors is intolerant.
