Senate OK's Gay-Marriage Ban


Today a Senate Panel voted 10-8 (party line) to OK a constitutional amendment banning gay-marriage throughout the United States. Now the measure will go to the full Senate, where it is believed it will die due to a lack of support. Remember, it will need a two-thirds majority to go to the states. We will see what will happen in the coming weeks.

In a side story, discussion got heated during the debate between Arlen Spector and Russ Feingold when Feingold threatened to walk out.

"If you want to leave, good riddance," The Senate Judiciary Chairman, Republican Arlen Specter, told Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russell Feingold, who refused to participate because, he said, the meeting was not sufficiently open to the public.

"Ive enjoyed your lecture too. See you later, Mr. Chairman, "Feingold told the Pennsylvania senator before storming out of the private room where the meeting took place.

Gotta love it.

p.s. Feingold is a jerk.
