Rep. Richard Hanna (NY-24) is now a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus.
Now, there are two. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is the other GOP member of that caucus.
Hanna outed himself as one of the potential good guys when he voted against Rep. Virginia Foxx’s crazy DOMA/DADT amendment last month. Only six GOPers opposed that amendment while nineteen homophobic Democrats sided with Foxx.
Maybe now Hanna and Ros-Lehtinen should just take the plunge and cosponsor H.R. 1116, the Respect for Marriage Act, which repeals DOMA. They’d be the first Republican cosponsors in either the House or Senate. And, as members of the Equality Caucus, it just makes sense.
