Rep. Bob Etheridge, the Democrat from North Carolina who voted to ban gay marriage at the federal level, also voted against gay D.C. residents’ right to adopt children. He should’ve focused his attention on voting down battery laws in the nation’s capital, because it appears that’s exactly what he’s guilty of.
MAYBE! Because really, who are these “college students” uploading this video to YouTube without any description or identification? And with all those cut-away scenes, it’s hard to tell how much editing was done with the clip. I’m remaining cautiously skeptical about this one. But yeah, Etheridge still comes off looking like a jerk.
Update: The congressman has apologized.
