Sen. Larry Craig Co-Sponsors Defense of Marriage Amendment

Sens. Larry Craig (R-ID) and David Vitter (R-LA) have signed on as co-sponsors of S.J. Res. 43, the Marriage Protection Amendment – a bill that would amend the Constitution to declare that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”

Sen. Craig was arrested June 11, 2007 on charges of lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal and pled guilty.

Sen. Vitter was on a list of clients of a prostitution firm owned by “The DC Madam,” Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

This is the fourth attempt by Republicans during this Congress to legislate what they call “family values” with similar bills.

    These guys just don’t get it. Please follow these directions: Open mouth, insert foot. (remove toilet paper first!)

    Don’t forget that the bill also includes Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi. His family values includes dodging the draft in Vietnam and later insinuating that the U.S. lost the Vietnam War because “we” didn’t fight hard enough or long enough. None of his children serve in his current war he wants other families to fight.

    Why is the government even involved in this issue? Don’t we have enough for them to do with gas prices, the economy, the war, etc…? This is just another smoke screen to get the american public to think they are really busy doing stuff, instead of focusing on the tough issues that government is supposed to focus on.
