TBP--Anti-gay bill might be gone, but not forgotten

Last week I made a huge fuss on Bilerico.com as well as on Twitter and Facebook all about the discriminatory SB3447 that would ruin the Illinois employment non-discrimination law. This week its quieted down, but now the question is, will we have to deal with this again?

Illinois discriminatory anti-gay, anti-jobs bill gone but not forgotten on the The Bilerico Project:
"Last week I told you about the urgent action needed to stop a bill seeking to water down Illinois' potent gender identity and sexual orientation inclusive employment non-discrimination law. Republican gubernatorial front-runner, Bill Brady, had quietly introduced a bill to expand 'religious exemptions' so much that the law would be nearly nullified. Bill Brady had been vehemently against the law when it was initially introduced, back when he was in the lower house. Now a Senator and GOP Governor hopeful, Brady was seeking to use transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual folks in Illinois to court favor in rural areas, and shore up his conservative base.

Brady is a right wing nut job. He needn't worry about his conservative base. I don't use nut job loosely. Brady is currently campaigning on--among other things--a strong 'reform' platform--specifically touting campaign finance reform and term limits. One of the longest serving lawmakers in the Assembly, Brady voted against campaign finance reform bills numerous times, and also voted against a term limits bill. I'm confused."
