I spend a fair amount of time in Harrisburg. I know who is closeted. Any closeted Senator who votes for Eichelberger’s bill will be outed. I also know a State Senator who is wildly homophobic and is also an alcoholic. One of her rants will also be made public depending on her vote. This is fair warning.
What do you think? Is this fair?
The bill they are voting on is a “marriage protection bill” that will protect marriage from gay people who would like to destroy it marry.
The bill has been tabled by a vote of 8-6. No word yet from The Pennsylvania Progressive as to whether he needs to make good on his threat.
An interesting quote, in light of the threat:
“We knew this was coming in the last couple of days because some of the people had switched their votes,” Eichelberger said, noting that even though the table motion could allow for the bill to be resurrected before the end of this session, that’s not going to happen. “The people who voted for this were voting to kill it. That’s the realistic picture. Why they did it, I don’t know, because they are some of the people who were in support of this effort in the past.”
