DC Votes 12-1 To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages, Marion Barry Loses Mind Again

Marion "I am a moral crack whore" Barry was the only dissenting vote today as the Washington DC City Council voted 12-1 to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Barry initially voted for the bill, but asked for an immediate re-vote saying he didn't know what he had just voted on. He then voted 'no'.


If Congress does not intervene, DC Councilman David Catania says he will introduce a bill later this year allowing same-sex marriage to be performed in the District. Although there is disagreement, some marriage advocates believe that the city's Human Rights Act forbids putting the issue to a popular vote.
