Gay activist drops complaints against 9 Democratic legislators

    Kapolei resident Michael Golojuch, Jr. reacts at comments whispered in the gallery at the Senate chambers on Friday, Jan. 28, 2011 in the State Capitol.

Michael Golojuch, Jr., the gay activist who filed complaints against 11 state House and Senate Democrats who sponsored or co-sponsored a constitutional amendment on traditional marriage, said Monday that he has dropped the complaints against all but two of the lawmakers.

The complaints before the Democratic Party of Hawaii allege that the lawmakers violated the party’s platform in favor of equal rights by backing the bills.

Golojuch, the chairman of the Democratic Party of Hawaii’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender caucus, said he would advocate for sanctions against Sen. Mike Gabbard and Rep. Sharon Har when Oahu Democrats meet on Saturday to discuss the complaints.

Golojuch has withdrawn complaints against Senate President Donna Mercado Kim, House Vice Speaker John Mizuno, Rep. Henry Aquino, Rep. Karen Awana, Rep. Ty Cullen, Rep. Ken Ito, Rep. Calvin Say, Rep. K. Mark Takai, and Rep. Clift Tsuji.
