REP. MALONEY STRONGLY OPPOSED TO PRESIDENT'S SUPPORT OF GAY MARRIAGE AMENDMENT
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, President Bush formally endorsed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in a White House speech. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14) asserted her vehement opposition to the President's position in the following statement:
"This President wants to drag his election-year politics into our constitution - it's no coincidence that this announcement comes a day after he kicked off his campaign. Instead of being a uniter, he's clearly a divider, and this amendment is dividing this country. It should be rejected, and I will personally oppose it."
