  •  The real issue is why its just 3 witnesses (3+ / 0-)

    One of the witnesses:

    Among the witnesses is Ron Wallen, an Indio, Calif. resident, who married Tom Carrollo in 2008 after being together for 55 years. After Carrollo died in March of cancer, Wallen’s income was compromised because DOMA prohibits him from receiving his spouse’s Social Security payment. According to the hearing notice, Wallen is unable to make payments on his family home and is faced with selling the residence after recently losing his spouse.

    I don't care what color Ron Wallen is. He is the penultimate witness, imo.

    Leahy picked the witnesses. He has been a stalwart supporter for our cause. I trust him.
