Good ole homophobe Bill Frist (R) is planning a vote on the abominable anti-marriage constitutional amendment that ShrubCo has been pushing. When does he want to have the vote? Election year, of course. At least we can take comfort in the notion that it'll fail miserably.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday he plans a vote in early June on a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, a move likely to fail but sure to spark a fiery election-year debate.
Frist, a Tennessee Republican, told CNN he's planning the vote for the week of June 5 because he wants to deal with the issue "as early as possible" before the Senate calendar fills up in a busy election year.
Frist said he doesn't know how many votes the ban will receive, but Republican and Democratic aides privately acknowledged the vote will probably fall far short of the 67-vote supermajority needed to advance a constitutional amendment.
