Callooh! Callay!

One step closer:
The Legislature’s Judiciary Committee voted 11-2-1 today in support of a bill to allow gay marriage in Maine.

Eleven members voted in favor of the bill, two voted against it, and one voted to send it to referendum.

The vote was briefly interrupted when a woman began yelling at legislators because she wanted them to reject the bill. Elaine Graham of Farmington was escorted from the Statehouse by Capitol Police, but will not face charges.

The bill will now move forward to the full Senate for consideration.

On a side note, apparently three people have submitted inquiries to the director of the Maine chapter of the AAP, asking whether I was genuinely authorized to speak on its behalf. We'll see what happens when they are informed that I was.
