Defense of Marriage Act Ruled Unconstitutional by federal appeals court


“A federal appeals court in New York has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Act’s Section 3, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriages, violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution. The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston issued a similar ruling in May.”

Mitt Romney and the Ladies


ROMNEY’S LADY (AND MINORITY) PROBLEM – Remember how Scott Brown said his daughters were “available” while said daughters awkwardly looked on? Can you imagine just how mundane such occurrences would be if Mitt Romney had just one female offspring? Christina Wilkie: “In 1994, when Romney challenged the late Sen. Edward Kennedy in Massachusetts, the Boston Globe first raised the question of why there were so few women and minorities employed at Bain Capital Partners…At the time, all 95 vice presidents of the firm were white, and only nine were women. Romney’s answer at the time was… that there simply weren’t any female applicants. He blamed the profession, private equity, and said it didn’t ‘attract many women and minorities.’ He also blamed the elite business schools, from which Bain recruited almost exclusively. Those schools, he told the Globe, ‘graduate only a handful of minorities and women.’ Statistics suggest otherwise. In 1995, a year after Romney made his comment, the Harvard Business School graduating class was almost 30 percent women. And given the enormous potential of private equity to generate wealth, it’s difficult to imagine that women and minorities simply wouldn’t be ‘attracted’ to the profession. On the contrary, according to the Globe, ‘the team [Romney] put together to manage Bain Capital is exclusively white and male, all educated at the best business schools, mostly Harvard.’” [HuffPost]
