Continued from page 1
domestic partners and their children may be taken
away now that the proposal has been passed.
However, Hemphill argued that all the amend-
ment aims to do is to protect the traditional mean-
ing of marriage. "This has never been about taking
benefits away from people. The last six words of the
amendment were added on the advice of our legal
counsel in order to precisely define marriage. Even
the court of appeals agreed that this was the best
way to protect the definition of marriage."
"With Proposal 2, the goals of the ballot were
very intentionally left out, unlike other proposals,"
Knittel countered. "The proponents do not want
people to know how broad the amendment is, and
what it will actually do."
University Law School Dean Evan Caminker
said, "There is sufficient passion on both sides to
bring this case to the courts in order to define exact-
ly what the amendment means."
A possible position opponents could take is to
challenge the constitutionality of the amendment
based on the way it is worded. Mae Kuykendall,
professor of law at Michigan State University's Col-
lege of Law, explained, "The wording of the amend-
ment is a poor match for what its proponents claim
it should achieve - that is, to protect marriage
from an assault by state judges. This amendment
goes much farther, appearing to invalidate private
arrangements and civil unions."
She noted that state laws already ban gay marriage
and that Michigan's conservative courts currently
would not use the state constitution to overturn the
statutory ban on gay marriage. Hence, according to
Kuykendall, the wording of this amendment is hos-
tile to homosexual people as it denies them benefits
that domestic partnerships and civil unions offer.
While unmarried heterosexual couples will suf-.
fer a similar loss of benefits that normally come
with civil unions - because the amendment says
that the state can only recognize marriage as a type
of legal union -gay couples will bear the brunt of
the proposal, she added.
Despite the proposal's outcome, the University
said it will still offer benefits to same-sex and het-
erosexual couples. President Mary Sue Coleman
has said the University will continue offering health
care and other benefits to same-sex domestic part-
ners of University employees. In a letter to Univer-
sity faculty and staff on Oct. 14, Coleman wrote, the
University will "vigorously defend (its) right to offer
such benefits," regardless of the amendment.
Knittel applauded Coleman's stand. "It is a
good place for the University to be standing up
for what it believes in - equality."Washtenaw
County was among those that voted against the
proposal - about 65 percent voted against it. As
of 4:40 a.m. today, 10 out of the 11 states, that
put gay marriage bans on the ballot had approved

bled in Boston's Copley Square.
"It's been a long night, but we've waited
four years for this victory. We can wait one
more night,' he said. "John Kerry and I made a
promise to the American people that every vote
would count and every vote would be counted.
Tonight we are keeping our word and we will
fight for every vote. You deserve no less."Kerry
did not make a public speech last night and nei-
ther declared victory nor conceded defeat.
At the Bush camp in Washington, the cam-
paign claimed it had secured 269 electoral votes
but was able to confirm no more states voting
to reelect Bush. News agencies called just 249
electoral votes for Bush. The crowd at the pres-
ident's victory party, who had been expecting
the president to address the crowd after receiv-
ing 270 votes, soon realized that the election
may go uncalled. The segment was received by
silence as most guests looked around confused.
Following was an explanation that the Kerry-
Edwards campaign did not accept any sup-
posed Bush win in Ohio, and that New Mexico
and Iowa were too early to call.
Prior, a number of Republicans addressed the
crowd, some alluding to the fact that either Vice
President Dick Cheney or President George
Bush would be addressing the crowd.
Bush's former press secretary, Karen Hughes,
rallied the audience by thanking all the support-
ers for their hard work and also announcing a
Bush victory in Florida.
"The prosperity of our country is on the line
in the election," she said. "I think we'll have
some very good news tonight."
The resolution to the dilemma over votes
could take days. The Kerry campaign believes
unread provisional ballots in Ohio may close
the gap between the Democratic nominee and
President Bush in the state.
The campaign contends that the number
of provisional ballots in the state exceeds
the margin between Bush and Kerry in the
state, making it numerically possible for the
Massachusetts senator to overtake Bush in
Ohio and claim the state's 20 electoral votes.
Under Ohio law, election officials can begin
to verify the authenticity of provisional
ballots today but cannot begin tallying the
votes until Nov. 13.
While watching election results on a large
screen, Bush supporters paid the most atten-
tion to Florida and Ohio, the two most con-
tested states in the election, screaming louder
each time the president made a small advance
in either state. Party guests were overjoyed
and the room erupted with applause when it
was largely conceded that Florida would go
to the president.
But the cheers were deafening when Brit
Hume of FOX News announced at about 12:45
a.m. that Ohio had gone to Bush.
Republican cheers grew louder through the
night with each state that received more votes
for the president, shouting especially hard at
announcements showing Republican candi-
dates advancing in Senate races and ultimately
maintaining its majority over Democrats.
The Senate race in South Dakota riled up
most of the party guests when the GOP candi-
date John Thune vanquished Tom Daschle, the
minority leader of the Senate. The victory of
David Vitter, the Republican candidate running
for Senator of Louisiana, also elicited a loud
Republicans began gathering in the Reagan
Building in the early evening yesterday and
were rewarded for staying up until the early
morning hours with what many claimed was a
win for their candidate as well as an appearance
by the president.
These party guests mostly ignored the media.
Officials working at registration said this was
because they were there to enjoy themselves
and not to talk to reporters. When approached,
most party guests said they were unable to
comment on the election proceedings.
