Rep. James R. Martin testifying on the Maine House floor (rush transcript): “I’ve been with my partner 14 years. … I’m sorry he could not be here today to witness this debate. … Next year will be the 10th anniversary of [our commitment] ceremony. I’m hoping that on that 10th anniversary we’ll be able to make it legal. I hope … that we’ll be able to say, ‘This one’s for real.’ … I will proudly cast my vote in support.”
Rep. Steven Butterfield: “I stand here not to make history but to get out of the way of it.”
Just passed, 87 to 61. You gotta love those accents! Kathy Bates would be proud.
…they then moved on to debate how many turkeys a hunter could kill in a certain day. Maine is a great place to be gay; not so much if you’re a turkey.
That’s great news, thanks
Oh the poor turkeys. That made me laugh! 🙂
@BradK: The turkeys are in NOM. Though shooting them would only give *them* more ammunition.
