Equality Texas Attempts To Deliver 5,000 Signatures To Attorney General's Office
Updated: Monday, July 28 2014, 07:09 PM CDT
Five-thousand signatures neatly tied up and ready for delivery to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.
Andy Miller, an Equality Texas supporter and a gay dad himself, was in charge of making the call to get those signatures dropped off.
That phone call didn't go as planned.
"No they said they refused delivery because they won't accept anything that's not delivered by common carrier," Miller said. "It's disappointing that someone wouldn't even come down and meet with us and say that face to face. I understand there are safety and security issues, but there are also ways I think to meet with your constituents and tell them where you stand on the issue."
Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled the state's ban on same sex marriage was unconstitutional. These signatures all support that and ask General Abbott and Governor Rick Perry to stop trying to appeal.
"We actually confirmed with the Texas Attorney General's Office on Friday that we would be able to come and deliver the petitions today, that they would be received by his office so this both a surprise and a disappointment today," said Lauren Zurbrugg with Equality Texas.
KEYE-TV reached out to Abbott's press office. We were told it could not confirm the group had ever been told the petitions would be taken or even confirm they were turned away today.
Supporters, including Miller, aren't deterred. In fact, they went straight out to box them up and send these signatures on their way.
Abbott's office is not commenting on the petitions. However, in the past he has told KEYE-TV he will continue the effort to defend the Texas constitution and promised to appeal the judge's ruling.
