Iowa Guy 2.0: Thank You Iowa Democrats
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Guy 2.0
Yesterday in the Iowa Legislature, House Minority Leader Christopher Rants (R - Screamer) tried to use a procedural motion to move a proposed Defense of Marriage Amendment out of committee onto the floor for a vote. Showing solidarity, Democrats voted against the motion, keeping the bill in committee where it will die a natural death by the end of the week. I'm so proud of the Democrats in the Iowa House today. As one, they took a stand against bigotry and discrimination. Realizing that the state constitution is a document that enshrines our rights as citizens, they refused to write discrimination into state law, forever disenfranchising a segment of the state's population.
