Audio: Rep. Randy Weber says anti-gay groups came to him to draft State Marriage Defense Act

by Jeremy Hooper

Considering the so-called State Marriage Defense Act rolled out, with anti-LGBT groups like the Family Research issuing press releases about it before its sponsor, first term congressman Randy Weber (R-TX14), had even finished reading the Windsor decision, many of us suspected that the anti-LGBT groups actually created the go-nowhere bill that they are so desperately trying to turn into a thing. On the Concerned Women For America's radio show, Weber confirmed our suspicions, saying that groups like FRC and CWA came to him, not the other way around:

[SOURCE: CWA]

This makes sense, considering the terrible Defense of Marriage Act itself came about this way. These groups can always find a few members of Congress to do their bidding.

It's just too bad these orgs didn't instead encourage the congressman to pick up the Let's Skip Out of The Office and Get Ice Cream Rather Than Do Actual Work Act of 2014. it would have accomplished the same thing, but with fudge ripple lapel stains to show for it.
