MN legislature can distance itself from its Bachmann-ian past

by Jeremy Hooper

Today, the Minnesota state legislature (and many of the same members who served with now–Congresswoman Bachmann) will begin the process of undoing this nasty tone and even nastier goal. Today, six months after voters rejected the kind of ban that Ms. Bachmann once proposed, the state House will begin the process of making marriage equality a reality in the North Star State.

It all begins at 1PM EST. Watch live here. Also be sure to follow along on Twitter, where we always have a lot of fun during floor debates.
