Here’s a little sign of what’s to come now in the wake of a House vote Saturday night in favor of the marriage amendment, which now will be on the ballot in 2012.
Annie Modesitt sent Rep. Tony Cornish, R-Good Thunder, an e-mail, via a Human Rights Campaign website, expressing her “anger and disappointment that you would focus on a socially conservative agenda that runs contrary to Minnesota values,’’ rather than on such issues as the state budget and job creation.
Cornish had a four-word response: “Give it a rest!!!!!!!!”
Modesitt, who does not live in Cornish’s district, was not impressed.
“Rude’’ was her comment.
She didn’t sound as if she’ll be giving the issue “a rest.’’
“I’m not in his district,’’ she wrote in an email. “But I DO live in Minnesota and a statewide policy regarding marriage equality effects EVERYONE living in our state.’’
