Washington Blade To Maryland Del. Jill Carter: "Shame on You!"


Kevin Naff of the Washington Blade reports that "MD Bill in Jeopardy" because of Del. Jill Carter:

At a time when her colleagues on both sides of the aisle have debated the often-contentious issue of marriage equality with restraint, Carter today bailed on a committee vote and essentially took her ball and went home.

The House Judiciary Committee was set to vote to advance the marriage equality bill to the floor; it has already passed in the Senate. Carter, who represents the deciding vote in committee, abandoned the session and is trying to force her colleagues into acting on two of her own pet bills before agreeing to a vote on marriage.
