Obama urges Md. voters to uphold marriage law

By Michael K. Lavers on June 12, 2012
Washington Blade

President Barack Obama on Tuesday urged Maryland voters to support the states same-sex marriage law in a likely November referendum that could repeal the statute.

'Were moving forward to a country where we treat everybody fairly and everybody equally, with dignity and respect,' he said during a campaign fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore. 'And here in Maryland, thanks to the leadership of committed citizens and Gov. OMalley, you have a chance to reaffirm that principle in the voting booth in November. Its the right thing to do.'

Obamas comments come less than a month after the Maryland Marriage Alliance submitted 113,000 signatures - more than double the 55,736 signatures they needed to collect by the end of the month to put the same-sex marriage law on the ballot. An unofficial count posted to the Maryland State Board of Elections website on Tuesday shows that officials have validated 109,317 of the 113,000 signatures.
