Don Dwyer, the anti-gay Republican Maryland House of Delegate representing District 31 in Anne Arundel County who drunkenly crashed his boat and injured four children last August, is claiming that “family issues” and the fact that some of his Republican colleagues voted for same-sex marriage in that state is what led him to start drinking.
Pressures at home were met with challenges in the State House.
Dwyer says he felt sold out when Dels. Tiffany Alston, Wade Kach and Bob Costa voted for same-sex marriage, an issue he spent years crusading against. Dwyer told reporters one day before the vote that he had enough support to block the bill. Kach, a Republican from Baltimore County, and Alston, a former Democrat from Prince George’s County, voted against the bill in committee. But Kach changed his vote after hearing testimony from gay couples. Alston shifted her vote after her amendment was adopted.
Kach and Costa, of Deale, were the only two House Republicans to vote for the bill. It passed the House by two votes in February.
“I had no time to do anything,” Dwyer said. “Had I known earlier, I could have taken some action.”
It was petitioned to the November ballot and passed by 52 percent of voters state wide. Voters in Dwyer’s district, however, rejected it.
“That betrayal really affected me,” he said. “I was physically ill. You pour your heart into an issue like that and it’s devastating.”
What? Someone from the GrandOld Party Of Personal Responsibility™ is blaming someone else, for their own bad actions? Well knock me over with a feather!
The Maryland House of Delegates upcoming vote on marriage equality might be in jepordy thanks to co-ordinated attacks from anti-gay Christomaniacs across the country and Maryland Delegate Don Dywer, who has joined with Maggie Gallagher and NOM in an anti-gay robocall campaign and who is also passing out anti-gay propaganda and hate materials from the SPLC-certified hate group, Mass Resistance.
This is Maryland Delegate Don Dwyer, Jr.
I have been fighting for many years now to keep marriage between a man and a woman as the Creator God intended.
We are about to redefine the term “marriage” to include same sex marriages. Please open, print and read the attached files regarding Same Sex Marriage

I NEED YOUR HELP TO WARN PARENTS AND OTHER CHURCH LEADERS
In His Service, Delegate Don Dwyer, Jr
What an evil dangerous nut job and of course the fall back on the lies and propaganda and using fear by lying and bringing children and schools into debates about gay marriage. It’s a disgusting outrage! And unfortunately it seems to be working.
Backers said that as of this week, the number of delegates who have publicly declared their support for the bill was just short of the 71 votes needed in the 141-member House. “There’s an effort to derail this bill like none I’ve seen before,” said gay State Sen. Richard Madaleno (D-Montgomery County), the author and one of the lead sponsors of the marriage equality bill in the Senate. In a telephone news briefing on Friday, Madaleno said the mainstream media have repeatedly reported an earlier assumption that support for the bill was greater in the House than in the Senate, and approval of the measure in the Senate guaranteed its passage in the House. With opponents, including the Maryland Catholic Conference and the New Jersey-based National Organization for Marriage, applying enormous pressure on wavering delegates
Yesterday Delegate Don Dywer, sitting next to Moo-gie Gallagher opened his testimony with a prayer that God stop the Maryland House from “redefining and destroying forever the God-ordained institution of marriage.” According to Dwyer, House delegates that vote in support of same-sex marriage are subject to arrest for perjury, because saying that gay people deserve equality is a lie and they know it.
SOMETHING MUST BE DONE TO STOP GAY HATING CHRISTOMANIACS. AND WE MUST ALL HELP NO MATTER WHAT STATE WE LIVE IN, WEATHER YOU ARE GAY OR STRAIGHT SUPPORTIVE. WE MUST TAKE A STAND AND FIGHT BACK USING THE SAME TECHNIQUES THAT THEY DO!
EVERYONE out there. PLEASE CONTACT the Maryland State delegates immediately and urge that they maintain their support of equality and not to bow to hate and lies. Even if you don’t live in Maryland CALL. because I can assure you that NOM, FRC, AFA, MassResistance and the rest of these hateful vile black hearted homophobes have called upon their lemmings across the country to call and try to destroy the chance of marriage equality in Maryland.
Call one delegate, call them all. Just call and spread the message to other people to do so also. We need to start standing up and fight back against these evil people. If we don;t and we lose we have no one but ourselves to blame.
Well the HATERS lost out again yesterday when The Maryland House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday rejected a resolution to impeach the state attorney general over an opinion issued this year on gay marriage by a 14-6 vote.
Maryland law defines marriage as between a man and woman, but Attorney General Doug (The Stud)Gansler wrote that the state generally acknowledges couples married elsewhere. Maryland is one of six states that does not specifically address the validity of same-sex marriages from other states.
The impeachment measure was introduced by Delegate Don (Douchebag) Dwyer, R-Anne Arundel, who argued “It is clear that this opinion usurped the authority of the Maryland General Assembly,” Dwyer said while rambelingly explaining the resolution for more than 10 minutes on the House floor and requesting a vote by the full House.
But the House decided it should be referred to the House Judiciary Committee instead. A vote that would have required the entire House of Delegates to vote on the impeachment failed 39-101 after sparking a debate on the issue.
Smokin hot Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler has come under fire from various right wingnut religious freaks and especially by one of the state’s Republican legislators for his opinions about same-sex marriage. Specifically the fact that his opinion is that the state could recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.
Well pathetic old homophobe and Maryland delegate Don Dwyer has been vocal about his desire to see Gansler impeached proclaiming that the AG “usurped the authority of the Maryland Smokin hot Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler has come under fire from various right wingnut religious freaks and especially by one of the state’s Republican legislators for his opinions about same-sex marriage.

Yesterday, Gansler’s office responded to Dywers stupidity by issuing this statement:: “The Maryland Constitution explicitly states that a ‘court of law’ is the forum for proceedings to remove an Attorney General.”
So basically Attorney General stud told homophobic wingnut to shut up and learn his own state constitution!
