Former Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) now says that she supports gay marriage and she also now opposes DOMA, which she voted for in 1996:
“I think obviously this has evolved over time on the whole issue for the whole country and the nations,” Snowe, a moderate Republican, told CNN. “We’ve seen a sea change in society’s whole attitude on this particular issue and it’s only natural for government to be responsive to those changes.”
“The time has come,” she continued. “I think what we’re seeing is, I think, changing societal conventions, that ultimately you see the transformation of society’s gradual thinking and evolving on issues. I think we’re seeing those sea changes on this particular question.”
Very brave words Olympia now that you are retired and have absolutely no power to make things happen.
But to be fair Olympia Snowe once a very strong-willed independent Republican who reached across the aisle more than a few times in her career but she lost her steam and her freewill the last 4 years of her term becoming nothing more than another GOP lemming voting along the new
Reich Rights extremist hard line something she despised and which is why she retired and let office.
