Shower Curtain Chronicles: Senator Mee Moua Is Pissed

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Senator Mee Moua Is Pissed

She wants very much for the Marriage and Family Protection Act, a bill she co-authors, to be voted on in both houses of the legislature. Unfortunately, the DFL House leadership is failing to arrange for a committee hearing with a vote on the bill. So, Senator Moua, the Senate Judiciary Committee chair, refuses to hold a hearing on the bill unless the House has a hearing and a vote, too. She understands how important it is to have the bill pass both houses of the legislature whether it is vetoed by the governor or not.

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.
