ENDA passes the House.
The House passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) passed this evening with a 235-184 vote. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), on the verge of tears, one of two openly gay members of the House, delivered an emotional speech denouncing the efforts of conservatives who attempted to sabotage the bill with parliamentary manuevers. Frank received resounding applause.
TP has video of Barney Frank giving one of the finest speeches I've ever heard on the floor of the House. Truly inspiring. Once I figure out how to paste a Youtube clip in here, I'll bring it along.
