USDemocrazy has a few updates on Maryland’s Civil Marriage Protection Act of 2012, most notably: it passed in the General Assembly–and presumably with the curious blessing of former Vice President Dick Cheney!
But probably without the well-wishes of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Remember the undecided Sam Arora of Montgomery County? If not, see The “Marry”land Before Time, but if so, then you may or may not be surprised (his uncertainty certainly got to us) to learn that he voted against the bill.
Arora and many other delegates who did not vote in favor the bill want to put it ton referendum in this November’s ballot, leaving it up to the public to decide the ultimate fate of same sex marriage in Maryland.
Our advice to the lawmakers who voted nay: politely decline any invitations from Cheney to go quail hunting.
