Does MD Senator Barbara Mikulski Support DOMA Repeal Because She’s A Big Lez?

Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski recently announced on Twitter she will co-sponsor the Respect for Marriage Act to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. Bil Browning of The Bilerico Project notes, “with Maryland gearing up for a state-wide effort to gain marriage equality, she hasn’t endorsed marriage in her own state. So, technically, she’s one of those politicians who’s not for marriage, just anti-DOMA.” He also mentions that the never-married Mikulski might be a big ol’ lesbian—Michael Signorile certainly thinks so too be. That means Tammy Baldwin, wouldn’t be the first lesbian Congresswoman after all, just the first “openly lesbian” one.
