GLAD files another law suit against the discriminatory federal DOMA law
Well President Obama and fellow elected Democrats, as you sit there and lick your self-inflicted wounds from this past election, please remember that when you make promises to your constituents, you need to keep them. Promising, Mr. President, to be a "fierce advocate" for our glbt friends and families means just that.
