Feel the Homomentum!

WOOT! Nadler! Baldwin! Polis! WOOT!:
The Advocate has learned that Democratic representatives Jerrold Nadler of New York, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, and Jared Polis of Colorado will be introducing legislation to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act next Tuesday. A Democratic aide confirmed that a press conference to announce the bill will be held September 15 at 11 a.m. at the House Triangle.

...Nadler told the Bay Area Reporter in July that the bill would amount to a full repeal of DOMA, including Section 2, which advises states to disregard same-sex marriages that have been legally performed in other states, and Section 3, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
Let's get this thing done, Dems! Call Obama's bluff and get that shit on his desk and make him sign it!

There are reportedly 50 co-sponsors on the bill already, though it hasn't officially been circulated.

Contact your representative and urge them to co-sponsor the legislation to repeal DOMA!

Teaspoons ahoy! o.oP
