D.C. Will Continue Recognizing Out-of-State Homosexual Married Persons

Sorry, Mr. Jackson: “Moments ago, the D.C. Board of Elections ruled that legislation recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions, passed overwhelmingly last month by the D.C. Council and signed by the mayor, isn’t a proper subject for a public referendum under D.C. law. D.C. law prohibits any referendum that authorizes discrimination or has the effect of authorizing discrimination under the Human Rights Act.” [HRC; Earlier]
