Washington Will Almost Definitely Be The Next State To Legalize Gay Marriage

Great news out of Washington State! Senator Mary Margaret Haugen says she will support Washington’s gay marriage bill, thus becoming the 25th vote needed to pass the bill out of the Senate.

“I know this announcement makes me the so-called 25th vote, the vote that ensures passage,” Haugen said in a statement. She said she took her time making up her mind to “to reconcile my religious beliefs with my beliefs as an American, as a legislator, and as a wife and mother who cannot deny to others the joys and benefits I enjoy. This is the right vote and it is the vote I will cast when this measure comes to the floor.”
