    Schwarzenegger Supports Prop. 73

    The Governor officially announced his vote on all the ballot proposition for the special election:

    Proposition 73: Support
    Proposition 74: Support
    Proposition 75: Support
    Proposition 76: Support
    Proposition 77: Support
    Proposition 78: Support
    Proposition 79: Oppose
    Proposition 80: Oppose

    The only real surprise is 73 (and not much of a surprise after earlier this week Schwarzenegger revealed in interviews his support, in principle, for parental notification).

    [UPDATE:] Angelides weighs in:

    “Proposition 73 was placed on the ballot by anti-choice extremists who have made no secret that their ultimate goal is taking away a woman’s right to choose.

    “At the very time that President Bush and his right-wing allies are re-making the Supreme Court and Roe vs. Wade hangs in the balance, we must fight this attempt by Schwarzenegger to chip away at a woman’s fundamental right to choose.

    “As a husband and the father of three daughters, I oppose Proposition 73 and the Bush-Schwarzenegger effort to make it harder for young women to have access to safe, professional medical attention.

    Phil's shrill rhetoric is a reminder of why he'll never be Governor. Great for the party activists but not the average voter.

    That what Westly is hoping...
