Bee Knows His Anti-Marriage Vote Was A Mistake

Jim Burroway

July 10th, 2008

Arizona State Sen. Tim Bee knows that his crucial sixteenth vote to place the anti-marriage amendment on the ballot was a terrible mistake that he wishes would just go away. Especially now that Kolbe has withdrawn his support. The Tucson Citizen’s Mark Kimble offers this anecdote:

State Sen. Timothy Bee (R-Tucson)In a visit this week with the Tucson Citizen Editorial Board, Arnie Bermudez, the Citizen’s cartoonist, asked Bee a logical question: Why shouldn’t gay couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples?

Bee was speechless. He looked at his aide, Dunn, then back at Bermudez. For an uncomfortable 15 or 20 seconds, he said absolutely nothing hunting for an answer. Then Bee said he “was not judgmental,” “likes people of all persuasions” and feels “the core family is an important thing.”

This is not an issue Bee wants in this campaign. But Kolbe’s absence will not let it go away.

And neither will we.

This exposes Tim Bee for the hypocritical bigot that he apparently is. It epitomizes the worst kind of two-faced pandering and should win him the award for THE SENATE’S MOST OUTSTANDING POLITICAL PHILANDERER. Tim Bee should resign from the Senate.
