Philip Frank, the significant other of Representative Mark Pocan of Madison, Wisconsin was issued the ID recently, granting him recognition as being the spouse of the Congressman, as opposed to a guest. Frank and Pocan were “wed” in a Canadian ceremony in 2006, but the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) only recognizes marriage as being between a man and a woman.

Pocan told reporters that he had urged the House Sergeant at Arms to allow the partners of homosexual representatives to obtain spousal IDs upon his entry into Congress in January.

Why do they do this? I don’t think about congresscritters having sex...now whenever I see Mark Pocan or his name...ugh. If you can swim in the lake or the ocean, why would you choose a septic tank?

This says Pelosi got the House Sergeant at Arms to do this.

This is some kind of protocol change.

It isn’t subject to majority rule, it isn’t voted on like a law.

My guess is that the House Speaker is not in control of the Sergeant at Arms of the House.

So I guess the House leadership’s defense of DOMA at the Supreme Court was an expensive sham to attempt to satisfy cultural conservatives because now they’ve essentially said ‘nevermind’.
