Senator Mee Moua Is Pissed
The Speaker of the House, who represents the gayest district in the state, is not behind a gay marriage bill that would pass if she demanded a proper hearing and a vote. She has the power to make that happen. We are not fighting the Republicans here. They can't stop this bill. The Republicans don't have enough power in this legislature to blow out a candle. We are fighting with the DFL leadership to get them to allow a vote on a bill designed to end marriage discrimination against thousands of gay and lesbian families across this state.
