The meddling begins

Politico reports that a bunch of congresscritters have decided to meddle in DC’s choices and are attempting to officially define marriage as exclusive to one man and one woman.

If you’d like to call and tell them what you think, the delightful gentlemens’ names and numbers follow.

Rep. Tom Price. (202) 225-4501
Rep. Jim Jordan (202) 225-2676
Rep. Dan Boren (202) 225-2701
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (202) 225-5629

thanks to DCist for alerting us to this one.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Apparently the House GOP only likes anal sex when they’re doing it to DC.

    It would be nice to not be the legislative concubine for every congresscritter with an agenda.

  2. I think DC residents should just take this as an invitation to put these folks on the speed dial when they want to make something happen in the District. Want to be intimately involved in the day to day governance? Okiedokie, start expecting the calls about parking tickets, alcohol licenses, zoning, trash pickups, public pools…..

  3. Funny how they always call in the sanctity of marriage and keeping families together when they go off on this tirade. If that were the case they might start trying to fix the incredibly high divorce rate in this country. That and stop banging their secretaries.

  4. While I don’t agree with the critters on this, do we really want the City Council to be the authority on this subject? I mean, if the City Council can turn it on, then they can turn it off. Imagine if every City Council had this power.

  5. I think that’s a fair point, weigel, except that a. any form of government that gives something can generally take it away, and b. it’s not like DC has a governor and a state assembly to make these decisions. While I agree that City Council is often a circus, it’s OUR circus, elected by the people of DC. As opposed to Congress, which was not elected by ANYONE in DC.
