Tweet Of The Day - HI Rep. Jo Jordan

Openly lesbian Hawaii state Rep. Jo Jordan has only tweeted once since voting against marriage equality during the second reading of the bill on Wednesday. Zack Ford reports that she made history in doing so:
Denis Dison, senior vice president at the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, confirmed to ThinkProgress that there is no prior known example of an openly gay lawmaker casting a vote against marriage equality. The Victory Fund lists Jordan on its website, but he noted that she has not ever attended one of the group’s candidate trainings nor earned its endorsement. Reacting to her vote, Dison said, “It’s hard to understand how a member of the LGBT community could vote against the simple freedom to marry the person they love.”
Jordan gets a chance to make things right during today's final vote. (Tipped by JMG reader Str8 Grandmother)
