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.
