Democrats Get Around To Trying To Repeal DOMA After They’ve Lost Any Hope Of Doing It

As expected, House and Senate members on Wednesday will introduce bills in each chamber to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. It’s a symbolic move more than anything; the Republican-controlled House is just going to laugh at this. Important nonetheless. The Respect for Marriage Act has 105 House co-sponsors; Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Patrick Leahy are bringing the bill to the Senate. So glad we’re doing this in March 2011, and not October 2010.
