Respect of Marriage Act RI Sponsor September 16, 2009Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
Note the singular. Sponsor. U.S. Rep Patrick Kennedy of RI is the only co-sponsor on the bill. Not a thing from my U.S. Rep Jim Langevin. Now on one hand I’ve heard what a nice guy Jim Langevin was when he was Secretary of State in RI, but on the other I hear from people who deal with him that he’s an asshole. I just consider him and idiot and with any luck Betsy Dennigan will unseat his ass soon.
I know we have the support of one of our U.S. Senators. Sheldon Whitehouse was actually at the event this past Saturday for Marriage Equality/Mass Equality.
But I want to see this bill pass because it is way past time we dismantled that disgusting DOMA.
