That's SO GAY: Senate Committee approves Gay Marriage Ban Bill


The rules of decorum that typically accompany debates in the Senate were not in evidence Thursday as the back-and-forth over a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage turned nasty and personal.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted
10-8 along party lines to approve the constitutional amendment, with Democrats charging that the majority Republican Party was using the issue to shore up its conservative base in advance of this November's midterm elections.

The vote came after a shouting match that ended with Democrat Russ Feingold marching out of the chambers and Republican Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter shouting after him, "If you want to leave, good riddance," according to The Associated Press.
