New Hampshire House Is Gonna Chat About Possibly Removing Your Marriage Rights And Stuff

Expect New Hampshire’s State House to look at lot like Rhode Island’s last week: With hearings scheduled for Thursday to debate the repeal of the state’s same-sex marriage law (though House Republican Leader D.J. Bettencourt, the scourge of NOM, says he wants to withhold a vote until next year), expect reasonable people and jerks to come together. And while Gov. John Lynch says he’ll veto any repeal bill that hits his desk, the Republicans enjoy supermajorities in both the House and Senate, and they might have a whopping 5 percent of the state’s support.
