Restoring Hope

Yesterday I posted a video of testimony from the Minnesota state House by an anti-gay marriage advocate making some comically ridiculous statements about ‘sodomy’. Here’s something very different though. It’s testimony before the same panel from a former Republican state Rep., Lynne Osterman, expressing teared up regret over voting against equality back in 2002.

It’s really pretty powerful. Watch after the jump …

“I didn’t come to St. Paul to single out same-sex families, but in my only term as a member…I cast a politically expedient vote in favor of DOMA, and I have regretted that ever since.”
