Marilyn Muskrat Back To Hating

Homegirl of the KKK, Colorado Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-Duh), is making her third run at instituting a federal constitutional amendment banning marriage equality and has signed on as co-sponsor of the latest attempt.
After more than a year of silence on amending the Constitution, and now facing a tough battle for re-election to a third term, Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-Colo.) has signed on as a co-sponsor of the latest attempt to gain Congressional approval.

"The sponsors of the amendments asked her to be a co-sponsor. The congresswoman supports traditional marriage so she agreed," Musgrave Chief of Staff Guy Short told the The Coloradoan newspaper. In 2006 Musgrave narrowly won re-election and has said little about marriage ever since. Last year the congresswoman said she would not reintroduce the legislation because it would have little chance of acceptance in the Democratically-controlled Congress.

But three other Republicans did introduce separate versions of the amendment. Musgrave is cosponsoring two of the versions. One was introduced by Rep. Daniel Lungren (R-Calif.); the other by Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.).
It was Musgrave who introduced the anti-gay amendment in 2003 and in 2006 - back when Republicans ruled Congress.
