Signers of Anti-Gay Marriage Referendum Seek to Block Release of Their Names

The (Everett) Herald reports that some of those signing Referendum 71, which would prevent gay marriage in Washington, are going to federal court in an attempt to prevent the disclosure of the signers' names. The pro-gay marriage group who requested the signatures says it will post the signers' names on the Internet. The same thing happened in California with Prop. 8, where a map showed the addresses of all signers.
