BREAKING: D.C. Council (Officially) OKs Out-of-State Gay Marriage

Despite Councilman Marion Barry’s antics, the Washington D.C. City Council officially approved a bill to recognize same-sex marriages from other states in a 12-1 vote. The bill now heads to pro-gay Mayor Adrian Fenty, who’s expected to sign it. Congress, which has the power to overturn D.C.’s self-governing rules, then has 30 days to opt to veto; otherwise, it becomes law.
