  •  Reading Tulsi Gabbard's statement (1+ / 0-)

    She says she supports repealing DOMA and would co-sponsor the Respect for Marriage Act (which amounts to the same thing), as well as affording all the same "benefits, privileges and rights" of marriage to heterosexual couples, which is not the same as supporting full marriage equality.

    However, she also says "[I] stand with [Obama] on this issue."

    Why can't she just bluntly say she supports it? "Standing with" the President is not the same as making a declarative statement supporting marriage equality.

      You should add David Cicilline to the list, though it's res ipsa loquitur, as he's gay himself.
