New Mexico Senate Votes Down Domestic Partnerships

Timothy Kincaid

February 27th, 2009

nm-flag.jpgLast week we told you that a Domestic Parterships bill was advanced from the Senate Judiciary Committee to a full vote of the Senate. Now the Senate has voted and rejected the bill.

All 15 Republicans voted against this effort to provide same-sex couples with limited rights, responsibilities and protections. While 17 Democrats did vote in favor of this less-than-equal proposal (for which we are appreciative), 10 more were unwilling to give gay couples anything at all. The Democrats who said no are:

Pete Campos
Carlos R. Cisneros
Timothy Jennings
Lynda Lovejoy
Richard Martinez
George Munoz
John Pinto
Bernadette Sanchez
John Arthur Smith
David Ulibari

Perhaps it is time to start thinking about primary opponents.

New Mexico is heavily Roman Catholic Hispanic. No doubt the Church leaned hard on those 10 Democrats (note the surnames). All from the good folks known more for the Dark Ages, the Inquisition and Sexual Abuse Scandals than anything of substantial worth, imho.

I believe that ANY Democrats that are not in favor of gay civil rights should be called DINO’s (Die-Nos), Democrats In Name Only!

It’s only a matter of time before they too go the way of the dinosaur, I.E. EXTINCT!
