Maryland’s Lt. Governor Anthony Brown Is Your Hot New Marriage Spokesman

Thomas Roberts, the gay former CNN anchor now comfortably manning a chunk of MSNBC’s daytime coverage, today welcomed Maryland’s Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, who supports the efforts of lawmakers there to legalize gay marriage. And Brown isn’t about to let the Rev. Harry Jackson begin speaking for all blacks about how letting gays get married will hurt their families. Because — and no offense to Brown here — he and his wife of 15 years Patricia Arzuaga managed to end their union without one bit of help of gays. (Then Roberts adds, adorably, that as a Baltimore native, he wants to get married in his home state.)
