I copied this from www.illinoisreview.com: “SPRINGFIELD - The Illinois Senate voted to legalize gay marriages in Illinois Thursday, with 33 Democrats and 1 Republican - freshman Senator Jason Barickman of Bloomington - in support and 18 Republicans and 3 Democrats - Forby, Haine and Sullivan - in opposition.
SB 10 will next be heard in the Illinois House.”
So Napoleon Harris voted for it? As did every other black Democrat? Boy, black Democrats sure have done a 180 on the issue after Obama came out in favor of same-sex marriage.
It is embarrassing that the only Dems to vote to preserve traditional marriage were three culturally conservative Senators from Downstate (representing seats that the RATs have no business holding). Not even a state senator from the Polish-Irish-Italian neighborhoods of Chicago (Lipinski Country)?
And Barickman should be targeted for defeat in the GOP primary.
