Senate Headcount on gay Amendment so far
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Wed Feb-25-04 01:10 PM by SaveElmer
I've been trolling Senators websites to see who has made a statement on the Chimp amendment to ban Gay marriage. Combined with statements I have seen in the news here is what I found so far. If anyone has any others please add.

Statements for the Amendment: Allard, Brownback, Domenici, Santorum

Statements opposed: Chaffee, Boxer, Corzine, Daschle, Kerry, Edwards, Kennedy, and McCain
