New York Attorney General Back Gay Marriage DOMA Suit

Thank Jebus for people of conviction like Eric Schneiderman. From the The Post-Standard and the AP:

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has joined the court challenge against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act that denies married gay couples federal benefits.

The brief filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan argues that the law violates same-sex couples’ right to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution.

Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
