Anti-gay marriage: Marilyn renews her vows

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 15-42Apparently feeling she hasn't fully enough connected her political legacy to anti-gay bias through her introduction of a federal gay marriage amendment in both 2003 and 2006, congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO) has now signed on as a co-sponsor of the latest version of the proposed ban:

Because apparently Marilyn believes in the "if it's totally broken, still don't fix it" style of policy-making.

But will this reinvestment in this tired, overwrought issue hurt Musgrave's chances for re-election in the fall, where she faces a formidable challenge from Democrat Betsy Markey?
