One GOP state Senator in MD breaks ranks to support SSM


From the Advocate:

"[State] Sen. Allan Kittleman announced his support for the [same-sex marriage] bill in Maryland on Wednesday, becoming the first, and perhaps the only, Republican senator to support the measure..."

... In the statement, he also announced that he would abandon his proposal for a civil unions bill, a consensus attempt he conceived last month that failed to gain traction among gay rights activists and senators from either party."
