Schwarzenegger sends hidden message (repost)
There is a distinctly rude - some would say offensive - message in California Governor Schwarzenegger's veto letter (below) to the state assembly. The letter's URL - which reads in part 2009bills/AB1176_Ammiano_Veto_Message.pdf - clearly indicates that the letter, while addressed to the assembly, is actually intended for Schwarzenegger nemesis Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who is gay.
To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning Assembly Bill 1176 without my signature.
For some time now I have lamented the fact that major issues are overlooked while many
unnecessary bills come to me for consideration. Water reform, prison reform, and health
care are major issues my Administration has brought to the table, but the Legislature just
kicks the can down the alley.
Yet another legislative year has come and gone without the major reforms Californians
overwhelmingly deserve. In light of this, and after careful consideration, I believe it is
unnecessary to sign this measure at this time.
The not so hidden message can be seen by reading the first letter of each line of the body of the letter starting with "I", thus revealing I FU*K YOU. The governor's spokesman says there is no message in the veto, however:
It was just a weird coincidence. I suppose when you do so many vetoes, something like this is bound to happen.
